Facelift and Neck Lift

In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces: deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jaw line slackens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. Facelifts counteract these problems by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher and more youthful look. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places such as behind the hairline and in natural folds of the face and ears, and the scars fade to near invisibility in time. After surgery, some patients appear 10-15 years younger.

A neck lift or chin liposuction is performed to remove excess fat beneath the chin and tighten loose skin in the neck. A less invasive alternative to a facelift, this procedure can produce dramatic results in the patient whose chin or neck has sagged with age or after weight loss.

MACS Facelift

A MACS, Minimal Access Cranial Suspension, facelift successfully corrects many of the problems encountered with aging. This procedure differs from a traditional facelift by using suspension sutures to lift tissue and by leaving a much smaller scar.

The MACS facelift has many advantages. The surgery involves much less operative dissection, resulting in a shorter operation with a reduced chance of complications. The result is a much shorter recovery period for the patient. The MACS lift still gives a very natural result and avoids the common “windswept” look seen with many other facelift techniques.

Dr. Mehan has worked side by side with Dr. Lee Edstrom at Brown University, one of the few hospitals to offer this innovative type of facelift.
