Facelift (Rhytidectomy) and Mini-Facelift

Facelifts remove excess skin that is loose and sagging on the face and neck. They also can tighten underlying tissue. Eyelid surgery is often performed at the same time as a face lift, to give a younger looking eye - with less puffiness and bags.

The Facelift Procedure

A facelift performed by Dr. Lincenberg does not leave obvious scars. Instead, incisions are hidden—they are made along the hairline from the temple down and into the ear, around the ear lobe and to the back of the ear. Sometimes a small incision is made under the chin to remove excess fat. After separating the skin from the muscle and fat underneath, sagging muscles and tissues can be tightened and fat deposits removed.

As a result of a facelift, patients will look refreshed, rested and healthy—and 10 years younger. The tightened skin and tissue will lessen and eliminate wrinkles, creases and lines as they restore the younger, natural contours of one's face.
