Come to St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery for a specialized facelift procedure. Our surgeons will evaluate your skin quality, thickness, and elasticity to determine what facelift procedure is correct for you. Under general anesthesia, the initial incision is usually along your hairline, near your temples, around your ears, and on the lower scalp.

The full facelift addresses everything on the face that is below the eyelids down to the neck. The incision is in front of temporal hairline, hides in contour of ear and goes up behind ear and along hairline.
The mini facelift or Next Day Lift, addresses the lower portions of the face. The scar for this procedure stays behind the ear.
The deep plane facelift technique releases the retaining ligaments of the face to allow full mobilization of the deep muscle. Rather than pulling the skin to tighten the appearance, the muscle is corrected which gives a natural and not tight appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A facelift will target areas of loose skin from about the temple down to the jaw and some neck tightening. The facelift itself does not correct the eyes or brow but many patients will add procedures to the facelift such as a brow lift or blepharoplasty to address those areas.
