As the natural ageing process takes hold, we can be left with lax, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in an aged appearance which may not reflect how you feel internally.
A face and neck lift can rejuvenate your appearance, returning you to a younger and fresher aesthetic. Through highly advanced techniques and her natural eye for detail, Dr Lisa Friederich is able to produce natural-looking results for patients undergoing a face and neck lift, so you won’t look as if you’ve “had work done”.
Your face and neck lift procedure
You may be considering a face and neck lift for a range of reasons. Some of these concerns this procedure can address include:
- Sagging skin
- Loss of volume
- Excess fat around the neck
- Loss of jawline definition
Suitable for both men and women, a face and neck lift works by tightening the skin, as well restoring excess loose skin, muscles, and fat deposits to their original form, providing a more youthful appearance overall. These procedures may also be performed in conjunction with other treatments to help you achieve your desired outcome.
Dr Lisa Friederich consults extensively with each and every patient to help her fully understand your unique circumstances and goals, as well as your physiology, to achieve the best and most natural results possible. She will be able to advise you as to the treatments most suited to provide you with the outcome you want.
Depending on the procedures decided on by you and Dr Lisa, your face and neck lift may be approached in a variety of ways. These techniques include:
SMAS lift – This technique concentrates on the underlying muscles and connective tissue, as well as removing and/or repositioning excess skin.
Deep plane lift – The deep plane lift reshapes your entire face, including the eyelids, brows and necks. The skin, fat, muscle and tissues are moved in one continuous section.
Endoscopic lift – Performed with the assistance of an endoscope, this technique also moves the skin, fat, muscle and tissue together, releasing the tissue from the bone. Due to the depth of this procedure, it often results in more swelling and a longer recovery.
Mini-lift – A mini facelift generally refers to a procedure which has limited incisions, and is generally performed on patients aged in their 30s or 40s with early signs of ageing. As this procedure is less invasive, the recovery time is generally faster.
S-lift – Named for its S-shaped incision in front of the air and at the temple in the hairline. This is most suited to those who do not need as much tightening of the lower face.
