Benefits of a Facelift

A facelift offers unparalleled benefits in addressing issues such as:

  • Loose skin
  • Jowls
  • Double chin
  • Droopy or saggy cheeks

Working with you on an individual basis, Dr. Chatson can fully assess the quality of your skin and determine the facelift technique most likely to provide you with the youthful and refreshed look you deserve. A browlift is a separate procedure designed to restore the appearance of the forehead.

Facelift Techniques

Dr. Chatson will tailor your facelift to meet your specific needs. It is always his goal to select a procedure which will accomplish the desired result while using the shortest incision possible.  In many instances, an optimal lift can be achieved with a short-scar facelift. This procedure requires an incision along the lateral forehead hairline and along the front of the ear. Scars from this procedure are inconspicuous and the lift achieved can be quite remarkable.

Patients who have a greater degree of facial laxity may not be suitable candidates for a short-scar facelift.  In these instances, the best result can be obtained with a full-facelift incision which requires an incision along the lateral forehead hairline, in front of the ear, and in the natural fold behind the ear.  This approach allows Dr. Chatson to properly advance and contour excess facial and neck skin.

The scars from facelift incisions typically soften and fade over time and become quite inconspicuous.  We employ scar management techniques including scar cream massage which ensure the best possible result for each patient.

To accomplish an entirely balanced appearance, Dr. Chatson may recommend combining your facelift with another procedure such as eyelid surgery. This is determined on a patient-by-patient basis, and based entirely on your personal aesthetic desires.

Dr. Chatson strives to provide you with a rested and balanced appearance after your facelift. Natural-looking results are essential for your comfort and self-esteem. Dr. Chatson performs facelifts to restore a youthful appearance and takes every care necessary to ensure that you maintain your natural and pleasant beauty.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Chatson will explain all of your options and answer any questions about facelift surgery that you may have.
