Facial Surgery Q & A
What is a facelift?
A facelift is a comprehensive solution for the age-related changes in your face. As you age, you lose some of the collagen that supports firm skin, and the ligaments under your facial skin can start to weaken. When you add normal environmental exposure, especially sun exposure, to these things it can cause you to look much older than you feel inside.
If you're unhappy with deepening smile lines, drooping at the corners of your mouth, and sagging cheeks, a facelift might be the perfect surgery for your issues. Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, is skilled in a variety of facelift techniques, which he learned during a cosmetic surgery fellowship with some of the leading specialists in the field.
How are a mini facelift and a regular facelift different?
A mini facelift helps with mild lower face sagging. The main benefits of a mini facelift are tightened cheeks, corrected jowls, and improved jawline. A mini facelift might be right for you if signs of aging aren't too obvious, and you don't really need a full facelift yet. It gives you subtle and natural results.
A full facelift has longer incisions but also comes with more dramatic results. It lifts and tightens your whole middle and lower face. With superior skill, Dr. Dardano creates well-hidden incisions, so you don’t have very obvious scars afterward.
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a procedure in which Dr. Dardano tightens both the skin and the muscles underneath it. A neck lift also improves the appearance of your jawline. If your neck sags, has vertical bands, has horizontal creases, or has turned into a “turkey wattle,” a neck lift can be the ideal rejuvenating procedure.
Many women opt for a neck lift at the same time as their facelift, since it creates an overall younger look. A neck lift is also sometimes combined with other procedures like liposuction or a cheek lift.
What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is an eye lift. In upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Dardano tightens the upper eyelids, and in a lower blepharoplasty, he tightens the lower lids under your eyes.
Dr. Dardano can perform both types of blepharoplasty at once if needed to give your whole eye area a younger and more rested appearance.
Is a fat transfer an available facial surgery?
Fat transfer is a procedure in which Dr. Dardano removes fat from one area of your body to place it where you need it. Dr. Dardano can transfer fat from your belly or thighs to your face if you need to restore lost volume but aren’t ready for a facelift yet. Some women have fat transferred into their breasts or other areas, as well.
