Facelift

A facelift can significantly reduce signs of aging in the middle and lower face and provide a more appealing facial contour. By lifting, toning and tightening skin, tissue and muscles of the face and neck, a facelift can take years off of your appearance.

Dr. Kim specializes in facelifts and facial rejuvenation, and has helped men and women from not only the Spring, The Woodlands, and Conroe area but also throughout the country feel happier and more confident with a range of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical medical spa procedures.

Who Should Consider a Facelift?

The best facelift candidates are physically healthy, do not smoke, have fairly good skin elasticity and have realistic aesthetic expectations. While many men and women from the age of 40 and over have facelift surgery to restore a more youthful look, some people benefit from a facelift at a younger age.

Cosmetic problems such as loose skin under the chin or jaw, sagging in the midface, deep facial creases and a thin facial appearance may be corrected or reduced with a facelift. Many people combine their facelift with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift.

Facelift Techniques

During a facelift, Dr. Kim tightens underlying muscles, removes excess fat and re-drapes the skin for a more youthful look. Underlying facial tissue can also be redistributed to correct areas of the face that appear to be thinning due to the aging process. Though there are several different techniques for facelift surgery, all facelifts require incisions near the ears and along the hairline.

The method or technique Dr. Kim uses for your facelift will depend on your individual needs and desired results. There are three common techniques used when performing facelift surgery:

  • A traditional facelift redistributes fat, repositions underlying tissue, lifts deep layers of the face and muscles and re-drapes the overlaying skin.
  • A limited incision facelift is an alternative to a traditional facelift, allowing for the tightening of the jowls, cheeks and neck while using less extensive incisions.
  • A neck lift addresses loose neck skin and fat under the chin, but does not correct cosmetic imperfections of the mid-face or forehead.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kim, she will explain the benefits of each facelift technique in greater detail and help you decide which approach is best for your needs. She will also explain the recovery process you can expect after your facelift and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Why Choose Dr. Kim for Your Facelift

Facelift surgery is a highly technical procedure that requires not only surgical expertise, but also an intuitive understanding of the aesthetics of the human face. For Dr. Kim, natural-looking results are always the goal, and she strives to deliver results that offer a noticeable, yet subtle improvement in facial appearance.

Since each person’s face is unique, each surgery is unique as well. During a consultation, Dr. Kim will explain the benefits of a facelift in greater detail. She can also recommend treatments that may provide a more comprehensive approach to your goals, either as standalone procedures or in combination with a facelift.
