Short Scar Facelifts / Limited Incision Facelifts

Procedures that give safe, natural results that turn back the hands of time are the goals of facial rejuvenation plastic surgery.

For many patients, Dr. Noel has been able to provide facial rejuvenation using smaller and shorter incisions than used with traditional facelifting. In many patients, an incision immediately in front of the ear and just behind the ear can be used. This approach along with tightening and repositioning of the deeper SMAS layer and neck liposuction can address many patient’s concerns of facial and neck aging.

Fat grafting and facial fillers also provide additional option for rejuvenation. Patients with a large amount of neck skin might need a more traditional facelift. Younger patients are usually well suited toward the short scar facelift approach.

Dr. Noel will meet with you prior to your surgery date to answer all of your questions and to make sure you are ready. He will discuss things to do before and after your procedure to help obtain the best results and optimize safety.

Patients can have a great impact on the risk and success of their procedure with many common sense habits that also improve overall health and wellness.
