Cosmetic Facial Surgery

As we age, our past life experiences such as sun exposure, stress and the unavoidable effects of gravity, take a toll on our skin. You may be a candidate for a face lift or rhytidectomy, if you have signs of sagging skin, lack of muscle tone, deep creases between the nose and mouth, fat deposits around the neck, and the appearance of "jowls". A common complaint from face lift patients is they just "always look tired".

Facelifts can range from "mini" to "standard" depending on the extent of face laxity. These procedures are done on an out-patient basis under either local or general anesthesia.

Additional procedures that would enhance the result of a facelift are: Eyelid Lift, Brow Lift, Chemical Peel, Nose Reshaping (rhinoplasty), Fat Suction or injections, and Laser Skin Resurfacing. Dr. Bonaldi will help you decide which, if any, of these additional procedures should be performed to reach your new, improved appearance.

A well-performed face lift should rejuvenate the face without distorting or changing ones facial features. This procedure can make you look younger and fresher, and may enhance your self-confidence in the process.

If you are considering facelifts, the Center for Plastic Surgery can give you a more in-depth understanding of the procedure such as:

  • When it can help?
  • How it's performed
  • What results can you expect.
  • Planning your surgery.
  • Preparing for your surgery.
