Face Lift in Phoenix
Perhaps no procedure is more associated with plastic surgery than the face lift. Phoenix and Scottsdale women and men count on this surgery as one of the most powerful tools available to reverse the aging process. Many people think that all the plastic surgeons in Phoenix have a single type of face lift technique that is used for every patient. The reality is that many different techniques exist to address each patient's unique needs.

Face Lift - Creating a Natural Appearance
At the Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery, when I evaluate a face for rejuvenation, I take all of its parts into consideration including the forehead, cheeks, eyes, chin and neck. I even look at such things as the nasal tip and the earlobes, which can, in some people, droop and add to an aged appearance. It is very important for me to assess each face in its entirety, because the final goal of my face lift surgery fpr Phoenix and Scottsdale residents is a natural, aesthetic appearance. The various parts of a face maintain a natural balance during the aging process, and if the different components become too "out of sync," a person's face can take on an unnatural appearance. In some people, certain facial regions appear to age faster than other parts, and in these cases, more limited rejuvenation can achieve an excellent result.
Contrary to popular belief, the majority of patients seeking plastic surgery in the Phoenix area are not women who, for the first time in their later years, seek out a plastic surgeon and ask for "the works." I have seen a trend in which women and men seek rejuvenation at a much younger age and ask for less extensive "maintenance"-type procedures. Because both of these situations do arise, I have a range of techniques available to fit the needs of each individual patient.
Scottsdale & Phoenix Face Lift Alternatives
In the milder cases of facial aging, a subtle removal of excess skin combined with a skin-fitness program can significantly improve a patient's youthful appearance. Often, I will also recommend facial resurfacing with laser or a chemical peel if the skin has signs of significant sun-damage or fine wrinkling. In more advanced cases of facial aging, re-contouring the deeper tissues of the face and neck, in addition to excess skin removal, may be needed to provide the best outcome. Sometimes, brow lift, eyelid surgery, or other Phoenix facial cosmetic surgery procedures are added at the same time to maintain facial harmony.
Regardless of which techniques my patients and I choose, I always strive for a natural result. People, in general, do not want to look excessively pulled, and they do not want to look like someone else. It has been my experience, as a board-certified plastic surgeon, that patients just want to look like a younger, natural, and refreshed version of themselves.
If you are interested in learning more about what to expect during the recovery process following a facelift, I encourage you to read cosmetic surgery FAQ's (frequently asked questions) about post-operative issues such as care for incisions, time away from work, and ability to engage in exercise and other activities.
