What Type of Facelift Do I Need?

Portrait of attractive cheery long haired woman touching soft skin If you’re considering a facelift, you may be wondering what kind of procedure is right for you. The type of facelift you need will depend on your unique facial structure and desired results. During a consultation visit with Dr. Kenrick A. Spence or Dr. Fernando Ovalle of Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, you can undergo an evaluation to decide the most appropriate option.

Below are just a few of the treatment suggestions that may be made by our team after an examination:

  • Traditional facelift. If you have drooping skin and wrinkles around your mouth and nose, you may benefit from a traditional facelift. This type of facelift involves making incisions along the hairline, earlobes, and lower eyelids. The skin is then lifted and tightened to create a more youthful appearance.
  • Mini facelift. If you don’t want to undergo a traditional facelift, there are other options available. A mini facelift is a less invasive option that can help to improve the appearance of your face. This type of facelift involves making smaller incisions and usually only targets the lower half of the face.
  • Browlift/forehead lift. If you notice drooping eyebrows or wrinkles on your forehead, you may benefit from a browlift or forehead lift. This type of facelift involves making incisions along the hairline and lifting the skin on the upper portion of the face to create a more youthful appearance.
  • Cosmetic injectables. There are also non-surgical options available, such as dermal fillers and Botox® injections. These treatments can help to plump up your skin and smooth out wrinkles, but they will not provide the same results as a surgical facelift.

How do I find out which facelift is right for me?

Ultimately, the best way to determine which type of facelift is the best solution for your needs is to consult with a facial plastic surgeon. During your consultation, Dr. Kenrick A. Spence or Dr. Fernando Ovalle will assess your individual needs and goals to create a treatment plan or provide recommendations based on this information.
