What is a Facelift?

A facelift is one of the most effective procedures to help reverse the visible effects of age, gravity and weight loss. The procedure works by removing excess skin in the face and neck – often the first areas to show signs of aging. Prominent nasolabial folds and excess skin at the jawline are some of the early signs of facial aging, a facelift tightens the underlying facial structures to give a more youthful, natural appearance.

At Janiga MDs, we offer a variety of additional popular procedures that can be performed in conjunction with a facelift. These include: Brow Lift, Facial Fat Injections, Neck Lift, Eyelid Lift, Chin Augmentation, Fat Grafting, and Lip Lift.

The Procedure

Dr. Timothy Janiga performs this procedure in an outpatient surgery center using general anesthesia. Incisions are made in front of the ear, around the earlobe and back into the posterior hairline. The excess skin and underlying structures are lifted and restored to a more youthful position. In some patients, an additional incision can be made just underneath the chin if further neck tightening is required. Often we’ll use fat grafting in conjunction with a facelift to provide additional volume to the cheeks, lips and nasolabial folds.

A facelift will diminish deep creases on the face and neck, creating a more defined jaw and neckline. Dr. Timothy Janiga takes pride in his patient’s natural results, revealing a youthful, refreshed appearance.

The procedure takes approximately three hours with an additional two hours of recovery time.

They both seem like they are genuinely interested in their patients. They are both very nice people and fine physicians." - PP
