The face is usually the first place that shows signs of inevitable aging. Most people want to present a youthful appearance, so they resort to cosmetic surgery. Facelifts are gaining popularity in Vineland, NJ, and Dr. Mohit Sood provides his patients with the desired youthful look they desire. Dr. Sood is a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
What Is a Facelift?
A facelift restores smooth skin to the face and neck by removing fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Laugh lines, along with creases under the eyes, are tightened up with expert techniques.
Benefits of a Facelift
People decide on a facelift for a more youthful appearance. Following the procedure, the skin has a firmer base and may even withstand aging better. Advances in technology have made laser and endoscopic camera treatments possible for more efficient results and quicker recovery.
How Is a Facelift Performed?
A facelift is performed under general or local anesthesia. Dr. Sood determines the best technique to use and the amount of skin to be treated. In traditional cases, a facelift incision begins in front of the ear and extends into the hairline. The excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened, lifted, and secured in place with stitches.
A laser technique utilizes a one-inch incision under the chin. Excess skin is tugged downward and smoothed for traditional tightening and stitching. Endoscopic procedures involve several incisions in the scalp, eyelids, ear and mouth. A tiny camera is placed into the incision to separate and lift tissue, fat and muscle from the bone. The result is a firmer, more youthful face that produces confidence.
