Understanding What Happens During a Facelift

Men and women visit Dr. Malamet’s Encino cosmetic surgery practice to seek his expertise in a facelift. What sets him apart from other plastic surgeons is that he performs a facelift procedure with the intent of coming up with natural-looking results.

If you are unsure yet whether or not you’ll undergo a facelift procedure, a detailed understanding of what happens during the procedure may help you finally make the decision and schedule facelift surgery with us. Although there are various facelift techniques that can be done, below are the main components of the procedure:

  • Removal or redistribution of excess facial fat – Jowls, particularly in the lower third of the face, is one of the most common complaints of men and women seeking a facelift. They are often a result of excess fat and loss of muscle tone, making the jawline appear droopy and less distinct. During a face lift procedure, removal or redistribution of the extra fat is done.
  • Tightening of the underlying facial muscles – As mentioned earlier, loss of muscle tone may contribute to the appearance of sagging facial skin. Thus, the muscles themselves may be “lifted” for a more youthful and taut appearance in both the midface and lower face.
  • Repositioning of facial skin – Once the excess fat and underlying facial muscles have been dealt with, the sagging facial skin may either be removed or trimmed and then repositioned. This is the most crucial component of the procedure and an inexperienced facelift surgeon may have difficulties with this component thus choosing a highly experienced facelift surgeon like Dr. Malamet should be a priority.
