The development of loose skin around the jawline and lower facial area is a natural part of aging for many women and men. Performed as a combined procedure, a face and neck lift can significantly improve the appearance of this "problem area," that is often unable to be remedied by diet, exercise or non-invasive cosmetic procedures alone.
This customized procedure is usually performed as a combination of a mid-facelift, lower facelift, and necklift, which are performed simultaneously. Depending on the patient's pre-surgery appearance and skin elasticity, as well as their individual aesthetic goals and desires for the procedure, the surgery may require more focus on a specific area or areas.
Along with eradicating a double chin, the face and neck lift can also diminish the look of vertical bands that result from a loosening or slackening of the muscles within the neck. While expertly altering the skin and muscle placement in the lower face and neck, Dr. Guida also sculpts fat in these areas to create a more slimlined, smooth, toned and refreshed look.
Because the procedure rejuvenates the appearance of the mid-face and lower facial area, it can also lessen the look of the nasolabial folds, which are the deep creases that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Higher up on the midface, this combination lift procedure can tighten and elevate sagging skin around the cheekbones.
Dr. Guida's unique method for this procedure, which he performs at his Park Avenue office in Manhattan, creates a refreshed and youthful look in the face and neck. His "deep-plane" approach, which emphasizes on the deep muscular layer of the face and neck, allows for patients to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results.
