Natural-looking Beautiful Facelift Results

At Peña Plastic Surgery in Naples, FL, Dr. Manuel Peña believes men and women deserve the opportunity to keep the features they love most about their faces and be able to cosmetically enhance those features that are showing signs of visible aging and environmental damage. If the features you love are showing loss of facial volume, folds, wrinkles, and sagging skin it may be time to consider a facelift or facial renewal procedure. While there a number of surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, a facelift is one cosmetic procedure that can restore your face to a more youthful-looking you. Dr. Peña advises his patients that a traditional facelift provides optimal facial renewal results that are long-lasting for individuals showing the visible signs of aging.

The specific type of facelift procedure that is best for you will depend on factors such as your current level of skin damage, your desired results, and Dr. Peña’s recommendation for optimal beautiful and natural-looking results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Manuel Peña to discuss which facial rejuvenation procedure will accomplish your cosmetic goals.

What Are the Various Types of Facelifts and Facials Renewal Procedures?

Dr. Peña performs facelifts and a variety of surgical and non-surgical facial renewal procedures. A full facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses wrinkles along with sagging or loose skin and excess deposits of fat in the face and neck. Some of the facelift techniques utilized by Dr. Peña also address a double chin or sunken cheeks. Dependent on your genetics, and your specific visible signs of aging, a full facelift may be the appropriate procedure for you.

Today’s advanced facelift procedures are not only for individuals who have reached a certain age but appropriate for younger individuals who are not happy with subtle signs of facial aging. If you aren’t ready for a traditional facelift but want to refresh your facial appearance, you may want to consider some of the following facial procedures:

Full Facelift – This procedure involves a tightening of the facial skin around the entire face. A neck lift is performed at the same time to provide facial and neck results that match.

Lower Face and Neck Lift – This procedure is performed to target the lower third of the face, which includes the jowls and upper neck area. Underlying structures are tightened and excess skin is removed. This procedure improves the look of sagging in the lower half of the face and neck.

When is the Best Time to have a Facelift?

Facial Fat Transfer for Facial Volumizing – Fat is taken from the hips, thighs, or tummy area using liposuction. This fat is purified and thinned, then injected into the areas of the face and neck that need more fullness.

Suture Neck Lift – The neck skin is reshaped for a more youthful contour with no skin removal. Dermal collagen strips made from bovine (cow) tissue may be used to suspend the sagging tissues. The bovine filler is eventually replaced by your natural human tissue.

Classic Neck Lift – This procedure’s primary goal is to remove excess, sagging skin from the neck region and reestablish the sharp neck contour.

The S-Lift or Mini-Facelift – Also called the MACS lift, this lift primarily targets the jowls. It does improve the neck secondarily. Often it can be a “rescue operation” performed 7 to 10 years after a more extensive face and neck lift! The S-Lift is indicated primarily in younger individuals (40-50 years old). When combined with fat grafts, patients achieve more long-lasting and optimal facial renewal results. Compared to the full facelift, the S-Lift has very fast healing and reduced downtime and recovery (about 1 week).* The S-Lift or mini- facelift can be a good solution for individuals who notice the first subtle signs of aging skin in their thirties and forties.

Facelift surgery is an incredibly effective way to address visible signs of aging, but it is certainly not right for everyone. Dr. Manuel Peña is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over three decades of experience. He is prepared to listen to your concerns, inform you of your options, and help you determine if facelift surgery is right for you.

What is a Traditional Facelift and How is it Performed?

Before Dr. Peña’s patients can receive a surgical facelift, patients are required to be:

  • In good health
  • A nonsmoker or prepared to quit for good
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Ready to commit to a brief yet restrictive recovery period
  • Willing to closely follow Dr. Peña’s pre and postoperative instructions

Facelifts are very popular procedures and surgical techniques have evolved and improved over the years. In the early 1980’s plastic surgeons performed a “standard” facelift that primarily focused on simply tightening the skin. Today’s facelift performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon are multi-dimensional. Attention is given to the deeper layers of the face which has been affected by age and gravity. The advanced surgical techniques result in less pulling of the skin, thereby, producing more natural-looking results.

Typically, Dr. Peña’s facelift surgical procedure involves:

  • Placing subtle incisions in the area behind the hairline and in the natural folds surrounding the face.
  • Precisely and gently removing any excess fat and skin and tightening the facial muscles.

The procedure typically lasts two and a half to four hours. After the facelift surgery, our team is very involved in your recovery process. You will come in for follow-up checks daily during the first five days, then at the one-week mark.* Sutures are removed at Dr. Peña’s discretion.

What Results can you Expect from a Facelift and How Long Do They Last?

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

An expertly performed facelift results in a natural-looking fresh and renewed facial appearance. Facelift results are lasting, although the future effects of aging cannot be prevented. Remember that great skin care, a healthy diet, and sun protection are important factors in keeping your face looking its most beautiful.
It is also important that you understand that a facelift, while capable of producing remarkable results, does have its limitations. Dr. Peña will discuss your expectations during your facelift surgery consultation to ensure you understand what can realistically be expected from this procedure.
