Face Lift

The face has some disadvantages when it comes to aging. First, it is exposed all the time to the sun and the environment. Second, the skin of the face is some of the thinnest anywhere on the entire body. The combination creates deep creases beside the mouth, hanging jowls, loose skin and fat deposits on the neck, and an overall looser, saggy look.

If this sounds like you, a face lift with Dr. Aydin can be the answer. A face lift removes loose skin on your face and neck, tightens the underlying tissue, and removes excess fat. A face lift can take 10 to 15 years off of your face.

Is a Face Lift Right for Me?
Clinically known as a rhytidectomy, a face lift rejuvenates the mid-to-lower face and neck. If these conditions fit your face, a face lift can help:
  • You have mid-face sagging.
  • Jowls have formed on your jawline.
  • There are deep creases under your eyes.
  • Your nasolabial folds (lines between your nose and mouth) are deep.
  • You have fatty, sagging areas on the “highlight” areas of the cheeks.
  • You have loose skin, vertical “cords,” wrinkles, or excess fatty tissue on your neck.

It is important to remember that a face lift, while it will turn back the clock, doesn’t stop the march of time and its effects on the skin. You will still age, and the issues you have just had addressed will again return. Also, a face lift doesn’t target the brows, eyelids, and nose.

What is the Procedure?

Depending on your individual situation, Dr. Aydin may utilize different techniques for your face lift. Most people know something about the “traditional facelift.” But there are cases where the longer incisions required by the traditional technique are not necessary.


This is the full face lift, targeting the face, jowls, and neck. A traditional face lift involves lifting and repositioning the muscles and deeper tissues, sculpting fat (Dr. Aydin avoids removing too much fat to stay away from a “hollow” look), trimming and then re-draping the skin. In a traditional facelift, Dr. Aydin makes an incision at each temple, continuing downward in front of the ear, then around the earlobe, ending in the lower scalp at the hairline. If the neck needs lifting, a second incision may be made just under the chin to allow underlying tissue to be lifted and tightened, and excess neck skin trimmed.


In a limited-incision face lift, the goal isn’t as widespread. This technique seeks to rejuvenate the areas around the eyes and mouth, particularly eliminating the nasolabial folds and other deep creases. Shorter incisions are made around the ears, and also possibly within the lower eyelids or the upper lip to create a subtle lift.


In this technique, the mid-face is the target, lifting the cheeks and removing lines, rejuvenating the look without a full face lift. Mid-face lifts can reduce puffiness under the eyes, correct nasolabial folds, and improve the cheeks. Incisions are small and can be hidden in the eyelids or mouth.

Recovery and Results

Following your procedure your face will be wrapped in bandages and you will likely have drainage tubes placed. You will have extensive bruising and swelling due to tissue trauma. This will last two to three weeks. The first few days are the hardest, but then you will feel better. Your stitches will come out after one week. You will likely have numbness on areas of your face; this is normal and can last for a couple months, but it will go away as the facial nerves adjust to the re-draped skin.

Your results are permanent, in that the changes made by your surgery will always be better than your skin was previously. However, you will continue to age. Many patients opt to have another procedure in five to ten years.
