If you are considering getting a facelift in Tampa, think about adding another procedure for total facial rejuvenation. A facelift is a great way to reduce wrinkles across the cheeks and lower face, which is great if that is the only area that shows signs of aging. However if your brow is wrinkled or your neck is draping, then a facelift alone may not provide the full improvements that you are seeking.
When a facelift is done along with another procedure, there can be significant savings over having the procedures done in two separate visits. Plus combining the facelift and neck lift, or facelift with brow lift can allow you to reduce wrinkles across your entire face. It is often more effective for the plastic surgeon to make greater enhancements when working across two contiguous areas at the same time.
Which Procedures Compliment a Facelift?
In the Tampa area, Dr. Dominic Castellano, a facial plastic surgeon, frequently recommends combined procedures to help his patient to achieve the desired look. For example, it is unusual for someone to exhibit wrinkles or sagging skin in only one area of the face. Most often, once the cheeks and lower face have lost volume and require work, there are other issues that have become apparent elsewhere whether in the neck region or in the upper face. According to Dr. Dominic, each patient that he sees must be evaluated during the consultation in order to determine the most appropriate procedures to help restore their natural beauty. However, there are several commonplace combinations that work well together. These are:
– Facelift and Neck Lift
– Facelift and Brow Lift
– Facelift and Facial Liposuction
– Facelift and Eyelid Surgery
– Facelift and Laser Skin Resurfacing
– Facelift and Dermal Filler Injections
Which procedure is right for the individual will depend on many factors; the age of the patient, severity of the aging, amount of excess facial tissue, elasticity of the skin, as well as overall goal of the patient all need to be taken into consideration.
The Simplicity Facelift – Less Invasive than Traditional Facelift
At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dominic uses a proprietary facelift technique that is less invasive and requires less downtime that traditional facelift surgery. Dr. Dominic’s method involves only two small incisions made in front of and behind the ear. This allows the surgeon to tighten both the skin and underlying muscle. A special stitch called the “pulley stitch,” used by Dr. Dominic, lifts and tightens the cheeks, jowls, and neck. This will provide a long lasting result without the many weeks recovery or cost of the older, more intensive form of surgery. The Simplicity Facelift is often combined with the Simplicity Neck Lift that uses a similar technique. Both procedures are done under local anesthesia in a fully accredited medical setting.
