facelift/ neck lift
A Facelift is a procedure in which Dr. Mosca removes excess skin and sagging of the facial structures causing creaes and jowels with strategic incisions around the ear and hairline. In addition to pulling skin back and giving it more of a smooth appearance, fat can be added to restore volume that is lost as we age.

LIFT AND TIGHTEN SAGGING SKIN AND SMAS
Overtime, the skin and fatty tissue below the skin of the face begin to almost “fall off” the boney system beneath. The traditional facelift just removed and tightened skin, but more recently, we have begun to pull both the skin and SMAS (fatty tissue) back into place.
YOUTHFUL AND ENERGETIC FACIAL APPEARANCE
By relifting the tissues of the face to their previous position the patient will appear more youthful and rested.
Overtime the muscles and skin within the neck sag down and give a “turkey neck” appearance. If the facelift includes a necklift, these areas will be addressed and tightened as well.
RECOVERY AND SCARRING?
The Recovery process is 2 weeks prior to any social functions. There will be swelling up to 3 months. Scarring sits within the hairline and within the ear.
WILL A FACELIFT LOOK NATURAL?
Within skilled hands, a facelift can appear natural.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Results can reset the clock by 10-20 years and maintain for 10-20 years behind natural aging appearance.
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR A FACELIFT?
There is no perfect age for a facelift. It depends on individual consultation with expectations and appearance.
