CAN YOU HELP EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGULAR FACELIFT AND A LOWER FACELIFT?
Can you help explain the difference between a regular facelift and a lower facelift? I feel as if the skin around the lower part of my face and neck seem to be losing a lot of elasticity. How can I tell which procedure is right for me?
The terminology with facelifting is very confusing because many people use different terms to describe the same procedure and because most surgeons do their own version of a facelift in Philadelphia. There are many variations and I like to tailor the operation to exactly what the patient needs. I do 2 basic types of facelifts- a mini-facelift and a standard facelift. The mini-facelift is great in a patient who doesn’t have alot of aging in the neck and the standard facelift is great when neck laxity/ fatty tissue in the neck is a big issue. I would have to see you or at least photos of you to tell you which procedure would be best for you.
