During your consultation, Dr. Saigal will do a comprehensive and detailed facial analysis to determine the best way to fulfill your personal goals. Depending on your pattern of aging, he will present a variety of minimally invasive and surgical options to provide your ultimate result: a freshened appearance, a long-lasting result with imperceptible scars, and a rapid recovery.
A Facelift or Rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure designed to tighten the skin of the neck, refine and define the jawline, and elevate the cheeks – all helping to eliminate the redundant neck jowls and neck wattle. Incisions for this surgery are carefully designed and hidden in the hairline or within existing skin creases. Describing the differences between the multiple options and types of facelifts offered, and which is most appropriate for you is an important part of your consultation; this may affect the length and location of the incision and the direction in which the deeper tissues of the face are repositioned.
To achieve these goals for face and neck rejuvenation, he may recommend liposuction of the neck skin, a minor Mini-Lift procedure performed under twilight anesthesia, or an advanced Deep-Plane Facelift to reposition the deep tissues of the face and not just the skin – thus avoiding the “pulled” or “overdone” appearance.
