Problems like sagging eyebrows, excess skin and fatty deposits in the upper and lower eyelids, or wrinkles around the mouth may be correctable at the same time as a facelift. Fat under the chin or in areas of the face and neck may be removed by liposuction in combination with a facelift as well.
Dr. Johnson will evaluate the texture, thickness and elasticity of your skin as well as the severity of wrinkles. Sometimes, it is recommended to combine facelift surgery with laser treatment of the face in order to correct skin textural and sun damage like large skin pore size, acne scars, brown and red aging spots, fine wrinkles or rough skin surface.
If you are considering this type of surgery, contact Dr. Johnson to set up a consultation and explore your options.
Dr. Johnson performs a variety of facelift techniques, the most popular of which are done under local anesthesia without the need for general anesthesia and with a safer outcome than conventional facelift techniques. Read more about Dr. Johnson’s proprietary techniques, the Manhattan Lift and the Phantom Lift:
The Manhattan Lift
This is a proprietary procedure developed by Dr. Johnson based on his experience performing hundreds of facelift procedures a year. This is a facelift procedure that is performed under local anesthesia without any need for intravenous drug administration or general anesthesia. The reliance on local anesthesia reduces risks associated with general anesthesia. The procedure is minimally invasive and involves bringing the tissues underneath the skin surface to their natural position. This reverses gravitational changes produced by aging such as jowls, neck laxity, wrinkles and flattening of the cheek bones. The work underneath the surface of the skin will restore the youthfulness of the face without over tightening the skin. The superiority of the Manhattan lift over a conventional (deep plane) facelift lies in a shorter procedure time, safer procedure, and shorter downtime with comparable and long lasting results.
The Phantom Lift
This is a proprietary technique developed by Dr. Johnson based on his extensive experience with the Manhattan lift. This facelift procedure all the benefits of the Manhattan lift with the additional benefit of no external stitches. Through the use of a revolutionary suturing technique the healing process is faster and more seamless and allows busy professionals with a demanding schedule to return to their activities sooner.
