Sun damage, stress, gravity, lifestyle choices, and weight loss dramatically affect your skin. While the skin sagging, wrinkling, and forming fine lines are a natural part of the aging process, these factors can cause premature skin laxity that can hinder your confidence.
At Stile Aesthetics, Dr. Stile uses facelifts to diminish visible signs of aging on the face. His detailed methods help patients like you achieve natural-looking results that look like you but younger.
How Does a Facelift Work?
A facelift repositions the fat, skin, and tissue to smooth creases, remove excess skin, and tighten facial features. Dr. Stile performs facelifts on an outpatient basis, meaning you will return home the same day as your surgery. You will need someone to bring you to and from the facilities as you will be drowsy from the general anesthesia.
Dr. Stile makes an incision behind the ear and around the hairline to prevent any visible scarring and removes excess skin, tissue, and fat from the face. He also tightens the underlying structures (SMAS layer) for long-term results. After he repositions and re-drapes the skin for tight, smooth results, he closes the incisions and prepares you for departure. Most facelifts take four to six hours.
