Cosmetic Face Surgery Q & A

by Nima P. Patel, MD, FACS

Who is a good candidate for a face lift?

Ideal face lift candidates are women and men who have significant signs of aging in the face, including:

  • midface sagging or drooping
  • deep wrinkles, creases or folds, especially around the mouth, nose and eyes
  • sunken appearance in the cheeks or around the eyes
  • loss of skin tone and volume throughout the face
  • significant jowls or loose skin around the chin and jaws

Ideally, you should have a positive outlook, good general health, and realistic expectations about what a facelift can and cannot do.

What is a neck lift?

Neck lift procedures are designed to help reduce the appearance of loose, saggy skin in the chin and the neck – the so-called “turkey neck” appearance – or to reduce the lined appearance caused by bands of connective tissue. Many of our patients opt for a neck lift alone or in combination with other procedures to address specific areas of the face without undergoing a complete face lift.

What is a brow lift?

Sometimes called a forehead lift, a brow lift gently raises the eyebrows so women and men look more energized and more youthful. Brow lifts use “hidden” incisions in the scalp or along the hairline to access the underlying muscle and other tissue, moving the brow upward and re-anchoring tissue in a higher position.

What is an eye lift?

Eye lifts, or eyelid lifts, are surgical procedures designed to eliminate excess fatty tissue or skin in the upper lid or lower lid (or both) that make eyes look worn, tired or “hooded. Also called blepharoplasty, eyelid lifts are often combined with brow lift procedures, and sometimes followed by Botox® injections, to help restore a more youthful appearance and help women and men appear more energized and alert.

Can different procedures be combined?

Yes, many of our patients opt for multiple procedures to address different areas and achieve an overall more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The best way to determine which procedures can help you achieve your specific goals is to schedule an evaluation so we can discuss your objectives and the most appropriate treatments.
