A facelift can considerably reduce signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, removing extra skin and reshaping the remaining skin around the neck and face – all designed to rejuvenate, restoring a youthful, energetic vibrant and healthy look. While we tend to think of surgery as turning back the clock 10 – 15 years, we may also appear to age more slowly, to make time stand still. While some celebrities in their seventies surprise us with their ages, their youthful appearance is more than “good genes”. They rely on a team of professionals, as you will come to rely on us, to keep looking fabulous. Your friends will wonder why you are aging more slowly than they are.
Facelifts are frequently performed with other procedures such as eyelid lift, brow lift, cheek or chin augmentation, nose reshaping and fat transfers. If your problem area is limited to a specific area, then Dr. Dick may recommend a mid-face lift, a jawline or “S” lift, or a neck lift. Some patients may benefit from direct excision of neck skin below the chin. Others may do well with non-invasive fat removal by the "CoolSculpt Mini".

In Dr. Dick's hands, a Facelift almost always includes rejuvenating the face AND the neck. Doing less may look unnatural, like painting three of four walls of a room. However, for some patients less surgery may accomplish their goals. At your consultation Dr. Dick will discuss the pros and cons of each procedure, and tap into his vast experience to help you choose the procedure(s) from which you will benefit most.
