Facelifts

Facelifts are procedures designed to correct signs of aging. This procedure effectively tightens skin and alleviates wrinkles around the cheeks, jowls and neck. We provide three distinct types of facelifts at our Suntree/Rockledge, Florida facility.

For a full rejuvenation of the face and neck, a necklift and laser resurfacing may be performed in addition to any of these procedures to provide the patient with a complete transformation.

Abbreviated Facelift

An abbreviated facelift is ideal for those who have noticed the toll that gravity and sun damage has taken on their face and neck. The least involved of the three facelifts, this procedure requires two hours to perform with only seven to ten days healing time.  Incisions are made in the natural crease in front of and behind the ears and the skin is gently lifted and tightened. This surgical procedure removes wrinkles in the cheeks, neck and chin as well as corrects small jowls.
