Face and Neck Lift
Face and neck lift surgery is among the common surgeries of the face that is performed by plastic surgeons. In this type of surgery, redundant skin is removed and the skin is stretched to correct the effects of aging and give the appearance of youth. Due to new surgical techniques, the locations of the incisions are not highly visible. The effects of this type of surgery do not persist in the long term with only stretching and removal of skin. Dr. Sazgar utilizes the sub-SMAS surgical technique in which underlying tissues are also stretched. This technique is associated with better long term results. It must be noted that a face and neck lift is more effective on the sides of the face and neck. The middle parts of the face, such as laugh lines, are not greatly affected. The aim of this surgical procedure is to turn back time and restoration of a youthful appearance, not changing a person’s appearance into another. This approach makes a person’s skin look 8 to 21 years younger increasing the person’s self-esteem.
