Look younger, feel younger, and enhance your self-confidence
Sun exposure, stresses of daily life, and aging can take their toll on our faces. Before you know it, deep creases start to appear near your mouth, your jawline slackens, and your neck develops fat deposits and loose folds. Dr. Kitto's technique in facelift surgery can counteract these aging signs by tightening muscles around the face and trimming excess skin and fat, giving your face a more youthful look. In men, a modified technique is used which hides the incisions and provides for more natural results.
A facelift commonly involves making small incisions inside the hairline, following the contour in front of the ear, and continuing under the earlobe to the backside of the ear to the lower scalp. In men with receding hairlines, the incisions can be modified to provide optimal results.
The procedure usually takes several hours to complete. Following surgery, a small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin behind your ear to drain any blood that might collect there.
In addition to a full facelift ,Dr. Kitto also performs a mini facelift surgery for patients who have minor sagging around the cheeks, jawline and neck.
