Facelift in Memphis
A facelift can "turn back the clock" and restore a fresh, youthful look to your facial structure. It is often very distressing to see your facial skin and tissue lose its natural elasticity and the skin begin to sag. A formerly fresh, youthful face starts to droop, with creases, wrinkles, smile lines, jowls, and sagging skin adding years to your appearance.
A facelift resolves these issues – but should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with top-level skills and advanced surgical techniques to achieve beautiful, natural-looking outcomes.
A result you will love.
If you are considering facial rejuvenation surgery, the result should be fresh, youthful, and look like you – not over-tight, pulled, or unnatural. To achieve a very natural look requires treatment from a top facial plastic surgeon who is familiar with the most advanced facial surgery techniques in performing a traditional facelift or a mini-facelift.

The Facelift Procedure
A facelift is a custom-tailored surgical procedure, with every aspect carefully planned and strategized to suit the individual patient. A general overview of the procedure steps includes:
The patient is put under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Carefully placed incisions are made around the ear structure or hidden within the hairline, invisible once healed.
The underlying facial muscle structure and tissue on the face and upper neck zones are lifted to the position they had in your younger years. Any pockets of excess fat are removed. The facial skin is then placed over the newly tightened structure, and any excess stretched skin trimmed away.
The incisions are closed, with great attention and meticulous care to help limit the appearance of surgical scars.
