IS IT THE RIGHT TIME FOR A FACELIFT?
A facelift may just be one of the most widely known forms of plastic surgery. When something thinks of an individual getting “work done” their mind almost instantly shifts to the thought of a facelift. It has been popular for years and year, but has come a along way since the beginning.
When facelifts in PA first surfaced, they were a bit controversial. This mainly could be attributed to the fact that they looked very unnatural. Many people who had them done had skin that was way too tight. As a result, it would give the illusion of a forced smile or even an always surprised expression. Luckily, over the years procedures have changed and advanced, so this is no longer the case. At The Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery Center, expert Jonathan Pontell MD FACS conducts numerous facelifts and mini facelifts. This accredited professional specializes in these 2 methods. The key is to determine what type of facelift is right to give you the results you desire and this will be determined during a complete one-on-one consultation. Here you will also be shown projected before and after photographs, so you know exactly what to expect.
MINOR CHANGES TO THE FACE
For minor changes you will want to opt for the mini facelift. The mini facelift is less invasive than the traditional facelift. This alternative facelift solely focuses on certain parts of the face. The doctor will bring in your cheeks, neck and jowls. This creates a natural look and many younger patients opt for this option.
DRASTIC CHANGES TO THE FACE
The traditional facelift involves many more incisions. This procedure focuses on an individual’s facial imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles and is more customized than the mini facelift. The best part is that the facelift in PA now only requires about 2 weeks of recovery! It has certainly come a long way.
THE REVERSE MID-FACE LIFT SURGERY
A unique facelift offer by Dr. Pontell is the Reverse Mid-Face Lift Surgery. This method removes excess skin. It is ideal for older patients who suffer from loose skin on their neck and chin.
