Incisions for Facelifts
When it comes to face and neck rejuvenation, you have multiple options to choose that suits you the best. Dr. Sadove will help you to choose the right procedure depending on the degree of change you are looking for. Dr. Sadove employs ‘short scar’ or ‘S’ lift technique to perform incision. These are also known as Minimally invasive facelifts. This avoids the need incisions in the hair above the ear or lower scalp behind the ear. The incisions typically follow the lower hair line, in front of the ear, and just around the ear lobe. This technique allows for the face, jaw line and neck to be lifted simultaneously. Excess, baggy skin can be removed as necessary. Correction of neck bands may require an incision in the natural fold under the chin.
