Face lift DallasMany Dallas women and men who are unhappy with the aging look of their face inquire with Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to see if a face lift is right for them. And one of their most common questions is, “What parts of the face do a face lift correct?”

While some patients incorrectly assume that a face lift addresses the entire face, there are actually a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures to address different parts of the face. A face lift is designed to address the lower third of the face, by:

  • Eliminating deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
  • Addressing sagging or sunken cheeks.
  • Removing excess skin from the neck and lower face, often referred to as jowls.

Here is an explanation about how Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis achieves these goals when performing a face lift.

Addressing Wrinkles and Sagging or Sunken Cheeks

To address the lower third of the face, Dr. Bassichis performs a hairline incision in his patients up, around and below their ears. This “hidden” incision gives Dr. Bassichis access to the skin needed to tighten up loose skin and remove unwanted, sagging skin.

Removing Jowls

For a face lift, Dr. Bassichis also makes hidden incisions in his Dallas patients to remove unwanted jowls around the lower face or the neck. By making a small incision at the bottom of the chin, he is able to gain the access needed to remove these unwanted facial features.

Am I a Candidate for a Face Lift?

Dallas men and women desiring a face lift surgery at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center must meet certain criteria that Dr. Bassichis has set for his patients. These include:

  • Having the issues that a face lift can address
  • Being in good overall general health, and providing access to your medical records
  • Being in good mental health
  • Passing a pre-op exam for elective surgery before your procedure

Your Experience on Surgery Day

When you arrive for your face lift surgery, you’ll have needed to fast for at least 12 hours. This is because both surgeons and anesthesiologists alike feel it is unsafe to perform elective procedures on patients with a full stomach, as general anesthesia may cause nausea, and give you the risk for aspirating in your lungs.

When it’s time to go backstage, you’ll first be called to a pre-op room where nurses and medical technicians will prep you for your face lift. When it’s go-time, you’ll be wheeled to the operating room. The anesthesiologist will insert an IV in your arm to administer general anesthesia, and you’ll be asleep in seconds.

After your asleep, Dr. Bassichis will begin his work on your face lift, making the hidden incisions we discussed to give you a new, rejuvenated facial look. After your surgery is complete and you have been stitched back up, you’ll be transferred to a post-op room where you’ll awaken and be monitored until it’s determined that it’s safe for you to go home. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home as patients who receive general anesthesia are not allowed to drive the same day.

Face lift DallasIf you’re a Dallas man or woman who is interested in getting a face lift, it’s likely that you want to make sure you’re going to get a good return on your investment. After all, not only do you have to undergo elective plastic surgery but since face lifts aren’t covered by insurance, they’re an out-of-pocket expense, too. You want to make sure that you’re choosing to undergo the procedure at an ideal time in your life when your results are likely to last the longest. It makes complete sense!

Even though you might be showing signs of aging in your face earlier in your life, plastic surgeons like Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center – where he exclusively performs facial plastic surgery procedures – recommends that Dallas men and women wait until they are at least in their early to mid-forties before electing for the elective plastic surgery procedure. The reason? This is the ideal age to ensure that you’ll have the most long-lasting results!

What if I’m Too Young for a Face Lift, But Feel Like I Look Older Than I Am?

If you feel like your face looks older than you are, but haven’t quite hit the big 4-0, there are still other, non-surgical options for you to look more youthful and address your problem areas. At Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Bassichis works with younger patients on a variety of dermal fillers and injections, all designed to help you look like the best version of you. You can always consult with Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center to see which dermal filler might be the right solution for the problem areas you want to address.

Am I Too Old to Get a Face Lift?

Some patients beyond their 40s fear they’ve waited too long to get a face lift procedure. That’s not always the case. If you’ve had a face lift in the past, but feel like time has negated your results, you can always get a revision face lift. Additionally, if you’ve never had a face lift before, combining a variety of procedures such as a face lift and brow lift may give you the results you desire.*

Talk to Dr. Bassichis at Any Age

Regardless of your age, if you’re unhappy with your facial appearance, Dr. Bassichis can likely come up with an individualized treatment plan for you. Whether you want to address wrinkles, sunken cheeks, jowls or other facial issues, there are several surgical and non-surgical procedures that may be right for your unique case.

The only way to know what procedure or combination of procedures is right for you is to schedule an initial consultation at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center. When you do this, Dr. Bassichis will perform a full facial examination, listen to your problem areas, and design a unique treatment plan, just for you.
