The Face Lift is the apex of Facial Plastic Surgery. Like many Plastic Surgery procedures, the more it does and the less it’s noticed, the better we like the results.

Face Lifts Neck Lifts and More on Body Beautiful

I had the opportunity to talk about Facial Rejuvenation on The San Francisco Bay Area’s News Station KRON 4’s Body Beautiful, host Janelle Marie and I discussed:

  • Face Lifts
  • Neck Lifts
  • Dermal Grafts
  • Facial Fillers
  • Chemical Peels
  • Laser Resurfacing

Unfortunately, we had technical issues with the Face Lift Before and After Pictures. You can see some of my work by clicking the link above, or visiting the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Before and After Gallery on DrMele.com.

What Can A Face Lift / Neck Lift Do?

It’s easy to see what a facelift can do, try a “six finger face lift”. You can do it right now. All you need is a mirror and two hands. Place the tip of your index finger on the angle of your jaw, the tip of the thumb under the the jaw and the middle finger on the cheek. Gently, push your facial skin up and back to tighten the neck, smooth out the jowls and lift the cheek.

How Is The Rhytidectomy (Face Lift / Neck Lift) Performed?

There are almost as many methods of Face Lifts and Neck Lifts as there are Plastic Surgeons performing them. Most of them are variations on two basic methods, lifting just the skin or incorporating the deeper layers. There are pluses and minuses to each method, which need to be discussed in detail tailored specifically to your face. However, no matter which technique is selected, even the Mini Face Lift takes longer then the “six finger face lift” described above.

Rhytidectomy (Facelift and Necklift) Consultations

There are many methods of lifting the face. My goal is to provide the best results in the safest and most predictable way possible. I prefer to use the simplest method that will work. For the best results, there needs to be the proper balance between the problem and the solution. A big lift for a small problem can lead to a tight or “over done” appearance. On the other hand, sometimes less is just too little.
