Face lift and neck lift surgery can restore a more youthful and fresher appearance to a sagging and tired-looking face. People might consider having this surgery if they look in the mirror and feel that their appearance does not match their psychological impression of themselves or their age, that is, they look older than they feel.
With his training as an Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgeon as well as formal Facial Plastic Surgery training in North America Dr Marcells has the knowledge and expertise to perform a wide range of facial plastic surgery procedures.
Dr Marcells assesses the face in three layers:
Layer 1: the bony structure
Layer 2: soft tissue, including muscle, fat and ligaments
Layer 3: the skin
Face and neck lift procedures are used to support drooping muscle, fat and ligaments of the face (Layer 2) and remove excess skin (Layer 3). Support of a drooping mid face, jowls, neck fat and skin creates a more youthful and elegant jaw- and neck-line in women, and a more youthful, manly jaw-line and neck for men.
To be successful, it is essential that the surgery produce a natural appearance that does not look “pulled” or “operated on”.
Face and neck lift surgery is often performed with upper face rejuvenation procedures such as brow lift and eyelid surgery. Liposculpture of the neck can also be preformed to remove excess fat.
Before and after facelift surgery, the skin (Layer 3) can be kept youthful by various non-surgical treatments, such as laser and light treatments, micro peels, microdermabrasion, soft tissue fillers and wrinkle treatments.
A well-performed face and neck lift procedure can reduce a person’s apparent age by 5-10 years, boosting confidence and self esteem.
