What is a Facelift Meant to Do?

The term “facelift” can be deceiving: One word alone cannot describe every aspect of this effective facial cosmetic surgery procedure.

Fort Myers plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña believes each facelift should accomplish several aesthetic goals. Facelift procedures can alter the effects of years of stress, aging and damage from the sun and environment.

Additionally, a facelift can also be combined with fat grafts to remedy a loss of volume in the area of the cheeks to restore fullness to the upper and middle of your face. A facelift can also downsize or eliminate fatty deposits, creases and sagging in the face and neck area.

Another common concern among patients considering facelifts is the lack of definition of the jawline or neck, and a facelift can provide an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution for this as well.

There are different types of facelift procedures. A consultation with Dr. Peña can help determine the procedure that’s best for your condition and desired results, from minimizing fine lines and wrinkles to treating creases and sagging skin.

Generally speaking, few cosmetic surgery treatments produce results that are as noticeable and long lasting as a facelift performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
