Total Facial Rejuvenation

Prospective Dallas, Texas-area facelift patients of Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel often want to go beyond rejuvenating the lower two-thirds of the face (i.e., the focus of a facelift). That's why many men and women alike choose to enhance their procedures with complementary surgical or nonsurgical options to round out their results.

Dr. Kenkel and his staff understand the balance between looking younger and still looking like yourself. To talk about your goals in person, please request a consultation online or call the office at (214) 645-3112.

Why Combine?

Traditional facelift surgery improves the lower two-thirds of the face, where people often see the earliest and most stubborn signs of aging. Loose skin, displaced fat, and a "turkey wattle" can all contribute to a dissatisfying aged appearance, and there's no doubt that a facelift on its own can be transformative, leaving behind lasting definition and tone.

But facial aging isn't always a predictable process. Genetics and lifestyle factors also play a role in determining when and how the face ages — from crow's feet inherited from your father to lip lines left over from an old smoking habit.

By adding in other treatment options, you can pinpoint ways to improve your specific aging concerns in tandem with a facelift. For some patients, isolated areas of improvement may result in disharmony rather than the desired effect. In most cases, undergoing more than one procedure in a single surgery does not significantly affect your recovery process.

Your Complementary Options

Injectables

Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can be administered during or even after surgery to add focused improvement to very specific lines and wrinkles. These treatments can be the "finishing touches," addressing small lines or areas of lost volume that surgery alone may not.

Laser Resurfacing

Whereas a surgical facelift improves the position and tone of the skin, muscles, and other supportive structures, laser resurfacing can actually improve the quality of the skin, reducing some signs of sun damage, uneven pigment, and textural irregularities.

This 72-year-old woman underwent facelift surgery in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery, a chemical peel, and laser resurfacing to the area around her mouth. You can see a drastic reduction in both the fine and deeper wrinkles around her mouth.

Fat Transfer

Autologous fat transfer, sometimes called fat grafting, uses unwanted fat from one area of your body (removed via liposuction) to augment, fill, or soften another area of your body. In this context, fat transfer can add soft, youthful volume to the cheeks and / or the nasolabial folds.

Brow Lift

A heavy or low-set brow can add visual "weight" to the entire face, making patients look prematurely aged or even angry or tired. A surgical brow lift repositions it to a higher placement on the face for a more alert and open appearance.

This 57-year-old woman is pictured here before and 18 months after undergoing a combined facelift, blepharoplasty, and brow lift. You can appreciate how much more awake and at ease she appears.

Blepharoplasty

Also called eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both — through incisions that are relatively inconspicuous and follow the eyelids' natural creases. This procedure smooths away wrinkles in the eyelids, lifts sagging or drooping eyelid skin, and can also remove fat deposits or "bags" under the eyes.
