Question: I am ready to have a Facelift. What does that include? My Eyes? My Neck?
Answer: This is an excellent question. Here in my Dallas practice, facelift typically involves repositioning and lifting of the cheeks, jawline and neck. Very often we also address aging eyes 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 without addressing their cheeks or eyes. We discuss expectations and goals and based on that conversation and determine what would be the best course of action to allow the patient to achieve their best result; turning back time, creating a natural improvement and not an “overdone” look.
