For plastic surgery patients considering a facelift here in Dallas, the question of which areas of the face the surgery will improve is a common one. Along with sagging skin in the lower face, many men and women also experience laxity or banding in the neck and droopiness in the eyes.
Can a facelift correct all of these concerns? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel is answering your most-asked questions.
Q: I am ready to have a facelift. What does that include? My eyes? My neck?
A: This is an excellent question. Here at my Dallas practice, a facelift typically involves repositioning and lifting of the cheeks, jawline, and neck. It’s helpful in correcting concerns including:
- Loss of definition along the jawline
- Sagging cheeks and jowls
- Double chin or a “turkey neck”
- Marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and other wrinkles around the mouth
Very often, we also address aging eyes with eyelid surgery at the same time for a more complete rejuvenation. That being said, there are some patients that either simply do not need or want certain areas operated on. For example, I routinely see patients who just would like improvement of their neck via a neck lift without addressing their cheeks or eyes.
When you meet with me for a personal consultation, we discuss expectations and goals and based on that conversation and determine what would be the best course of action to help you achieve your best result. This means turning back time, creating a natural improvement and not an “overdone” look.
