59 year-old maintains youthful beauty with secondary neck and face lift
10 years after her first neck and face lift surgery with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon of Newport Beach, Dr. Mark Anton, this patient wanted to refresh her look. A believer in “doing things before I need it,” she wanted to address some skin laxity in her neck and jowl area. After consulting with Dr. Anton in his Newport Beach office, she decided the time was right for a secondary neck and face lift.
During surgery, Dr. Anton performed a Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) neck and face lift procedure to address loose and sagging tissue in the patient’s lower face, neck, and mid-face area. The SMAS is a thick, fibrous tissue that is dissected then lifted to create a very natural looking facelift. Once Dr. Anton sutures the SMAS into place, he drapes and excises the excess skin before suturing around and behind the ears. This creates a minimal scar neck and face lift result.
The patient reported virtually no bruising and minimal swelling immediately following surgery. Sutures were removed after one week.
What is the right age for a neck and face lift?
Lots of men and woman concerned with facial aging ask when is the right time to consider surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Anton he will determine if you are a candidate for neck and face lift surgery. Even though there are many in office, less invasive treatments for facial aging, loose and sagging tissue in the neck and face area is most effectively addressed with surgery. Today more men and woman are choosing to have neck and face lift surgery in their late 40s and early 50s so that they can look as young as they feel. Following up with regular in office collagen and elastin stimulating treatments like Lumecca, Skin Pen, Forma, and Oxygeneo help maintain the results of your neck and face lift for many years to come.
