Move Forward by Turning Back Time
The most visible signs of stress and aging tend to first appear on the face. Whether you opt for the traditional, mini, mid, or lower facelift, Dr. Thomas F. Mitts will carefully walk you through the procedure beforehand at our state-of-the-art facilities. Using the latest technology and most effective techniques, our surgeon will safely deliver the natural-looking results you seek!
Are You a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
There are numerous types of facelift procedures. At our practice, Dr. Mitts can correct one or more of the following issues to a varying degree:
- Loose and sagging skin
- An undefined contour or jowls
- Marked creases around the nose and mouth
- Wrinkles in the forehead and surrounding eye area
- Weakened facial muscles that yield a droopy or tired look
- Loose skin and unwanted fat beneath the chin and jaw
While it is not a cure for aging, a facelift can certainly reduce the noticeable effects for years to come, beautifully recapturing the youth of your natural features. Our surgeon also provides brow lifts, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping surgery, and facial implants to help his patients receive the precise look they desire. Or you may simply choose to combine one of our skin care or non-surgical treatments with the procedure.
About the Procedure
No matter if you opt for a minimally invasive or more involved facelift, Dr. Mitts usually begins by making an incision above the hairline. Once the facial skin and underlying tissue are separated, he skillfully removes the desired fat and skin, and tightens the adjacent muscles, so as to improve the face’s contour and overall look. Your skin is then repositioned and secured with stitches or staples. Soon enough, your refreshed appearance is revealed!
During your consultation, our physician establishes that you are indeed an ideal candidate by thoroughly evaluating your health and cosmetic goals. You will also work with Dr. Mitts at this time to pinpoint the most appropriate procedure to achieve your needs, in effect leading the surgeon to design your customized strategy for the operating room.
