Many of the women and men who visit us for facelift surgery from nearby communities such as Murray and Sandy, UT, wish to improve:
- Sagging, excess skin of the lower portion of the face
- A tired or aged facial appearance
- Heavy lines and wrinkles around the lower portion of the face
- Excess fat of the neck and jowls
Of course, each patient has his or her own reasons for considering a facelift. We customize our surgical plan to fit each individual patient’s needs. We looks forward to working with you to develop the plan that will maximize your results. For women and men who are interested in non-invasive facial rejuvenation options, we also offers fillers and chemical peels.
What to Expect
With advances in facelift techniques, recovery is now quicker and more manageable compared with other, older facelift techniques. While experiences vary, our patients are usually able to return to work within about 3 weeks of their procedure. While swelling and bruising is to be expected, our advanced face lifting techniques allow for less swelling and discomfort than other face lifting methods.
To begin your facelift procedure, we will create short, minimal incisions in front of and around the ear, blending with the hairline. We use sutures to restore skin tightness of the neck, and to correct the fullness of the angle between the jaw and the neck. Then, we will remove any excess skin or tissue of that area in order to provide a smooth and contoured appearance. Once we are finished, we will close your incisions.
The MACS Lift
Every facelift we perform is tailored to fit the precise needs of the patient. To that end, we offer a minimal approach for certain patients who have less extensive signs of aging. Called the MACS lift, for minimal access cranial suspension lift, this procedure involves shorter incisions than the traditional facelift for lasting facial rejuvenation.
In a MACS lift, we make short incisions in front of the ear to tighten the skin of the lower two-thirds of the face. This surgical method requires less access to the underlying muscle structures of the face, so it is often easier to combine with other facial procedures such as eyelid and brow surgery or non-surgical treatments such as injectable fillers.
This minimal method often makes for a shorter recovery time, but it is not appropriate for everyone. Our team will determine the best route for you during your consultation.
