As we age, tissue on our skin can start to sag and lose its youthful elasticity. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, aims to surgically curb those signs and rejuvenate facial tissue. Depending on your goals, a facelift can vary in surgical style and extensiveness.
A common style, referred to as the Composite Facelift, draws upon a combination of techniques from a traditional facelift and adds a lift of the orbicularis oculi, the eyelid muscles. The combination of techniques addresses signs of aging caused by sagging of the nasolabial fold (tissue in the cheeks) as well as ptosis of the orbicularis oculi (sagging of the eyelid muscles).
An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Sloan is capable of employing a variety of techniques that suit your facial structure. During your consultation, he can walk you through the steps of a facelift and you can explain your expectations in detail.
