Facelift is the best and fastest remedy to an aging face; and you get it done right in Charlotte.

What is a facelift, and when do you need one?
A facelift is a form of cosmetic surgery that aims to make your face look younger. It reshapes the lower half of the face by removing excess facial skin. More and more people are opting for procedures to help make their faces look better and look younger.. As the face is one of the most complex regions in the human body, comprising of bone, ligaments, muscles, fat, and skin are the key players in its layered arrangement, it is important to you learn what you can about it before going in for one.

People opt for a facelift when they begin to notice sagging in the facial skin – wrinkles. The procedure can help a person look as much as 20 years younger than they actually are.

Types of facelift available in Charlotte, NC
There are three generation types of facelift surgeries that can be performed:
– Deep Plane facelift
– Deep Plane minituck
– Signaturelift

Let’s take a look at what each of the three types of facelifts represent
Deep plane facelift
With a Deep Plane Face Lift, an incision will be made that extend from your ear to your temples along the hairline. The skin and deeper tissue will be pulled back and repositioned carefully, so that your face may appear tighter, with a more youthful look that does not appear stretched or “worked on.” A small incision beneath the chin may also be used to allow proper positioning of the skin.

Deep plane minituck
This involves a well-hidden incision around the ear. If you have some loose skin (laxity) around your midface, around your mouth or neck, this will likely be the procedure for you to tighten those up.

A Signaturelift is similar to the “weekend” facelift made popular by the media, the SignatureLift is a procedure that Dr. Sean Freeman, director of the Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery, and Charlotte’s most experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon has developed over the past several years for younger patients who do not need a deep plane facelift.

If you’ve had a facelift in the past, and are beginning to see new signs of aging, the SignatureLift is the perfect solutions for you. One major advantage of the SignatureLift is that as a patient, you can expect a younger-looking neck and jowl area with minimal recovery time.

Another benefit of the SignatureLift can be performed under sedation, in most cases eliminating the need for general anesthesia (although general anesthesia is still an option if you prefer). Swelling and bruising after the procedure are minimal. Sutures will be visible for 5 to 6 days, but these can be hidden by longer hair. Most patients are able to return to work after a few days.
