With new techniques, patients are returning to work sooner, costs are less, and results that are more natural are achievable. At the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center, we can provide men and women with natural-looking results from their facelift in Cincinnati.
2016 Top Doc for Facelift
Rhytidectomy or Facelift Surgery has definitely advanced from the times of Cardinal Richelieu, who lived in the medieval times of Robin Hood. He was rumored to have his servants corkscrew his hair under his cap and thereby pull up his loose facial skin!
Dr. Mandell-Brown emphasizes a “Natural Look” facelift. He wants his patients to have a rested, rejuvenated look without looking overdone.
An unnaturally raised side burn can be a give away of a facelift procedure. At the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center, we individualize your incision to preserve your sideburn without raising it higher as seen on the left. On the right is an incision option often used in male patients. In facelift surgery the position of your “Adam’s Apple” or thyroid cartilage in relation to your chin will determine the extent of improvement. In the left diagram, the “Adam’s Apple” is positioned posteriorly (further back). This patient will get a more dramatic result with a facelift. In the right diagram, the “Adam’s Apple” is more anteriorly located. This patient will get a less dramatic result from any facial lift.
Personalizing Your Facelift
At the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center in Ohio, computer imaging is used to demonstrate potential improvement with facelift surgery. Our plastic surgery specialists will show you where the incisions are made and tailor the procedure to fit your needs. Facelift surgery can improve the cheek and neck jowls and help restore the tissues to a more rejuvenated appearance.
One of the critical aspects at our center, is customizing incisions for the patient’s individual hairline. Many plastic surgeons perform only one incision. Dr. Mandell-Brown will tailor the incisions to the patient’s hairline. Typical approaches are shown in the facelift photo gallery and in the operating room section. Many patients will combine the facelift with other facial procedures—eyelid surgery, forehead lift, or laser resurfacing.
How a Facelift is Performed
Historically, only excess skin was removed in the facelift procedure. Currently, with Dr. Mandell-Brown’s technique, the fatty tissues are liposuctioned, the muscle layer is tightened, and then the excess skin is removed. Like other cosmetic procedures, it is important to understand the plastic surgeons’ philosophy. Do they prefer an aggressive facelift or do they strive for a more natural look? Dr. Mandell-Brown emphasizes a “Natural Look” facelift. He wants his patients to have a rested, rejuvenated look without looking overdone.
After your facelift, there will be some swelling and bruising around the area that will subside over the course of your recovery. Medication can help to manage any pain or discomfort you experience during your facelift recovery. The exact length of your recovery will depend on the techniques used. most patients typically take around one to two weeks off from work to recover.
