At Lytle Plastic Surgery, we have provided numerous patients with beautiful results from their facelift in Detroit. A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the best options for surgical facial rejuvenation and is capable of providing results that look incredibly natural. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ian Lytle strives to provide the best facelift results Detroit has to offer.
This is a procedure in plastic surgery where attention to detail means everything. The stereotypical “pulled or surgical look” can and certainly should be avoided. The ultimate in facial rejuvenation—the facelift—repositions and tightens skin and structures of the face and neck.
What Is a Facelift?
A full facelift involves tightening of the neck and jowls, as well as a lifting and repositioning of the cheek. This generally includes liposuction or direct fat excision of the neck and jowl region, as well as tightening of the platysma muscle (responsible for loose bands in the neck). Candidates for a facelift include patients with heaviness below the cheek prominence and above the jowls.
The Neck Lift
The neck lift is an alternative among patients with prominent neck aging or “turkey gobbler neck,” who may not be concerned about the jowls or cheek regions. The excess neck skin and fat can be removed with an incision under the chin and behind the ears.
The incisions for a facelift are hidden in the crease in front of the ears and behind the ears into the hairline. When healing is complete, these incisions are usually very difficult to see. The deep layer or superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS for short) is tightened and re-suspended, restoring a refreshed, youthful appearance, without stretching the overlying skin.
Recovering from a Facelift
Following your facelift, there will be some swelling and bruising around the area. These symptoms should subside over the next few days. Most patients need to take around two weeks of recovery before they feel comfortable returning to work. Strenuous activity will need to be avoided for a month or more. Dr. Lytle will provide you with a list of post-operative instructions.
The Cost of a Facelift
The cost of a facelift in Detroit will depend on several factors. Dr. Lytle can go over the expected cost and the payment options available to you during your initial facelift consultation.
