Different Types of Facelift: Which Technique Is Best for You?

Clever terms and catchphrases are the bread and butter of facelift surgery for many cosmetic surgeons. They entice patients to their practices with the mini-facelift, MACS lift, composite facelift, deep plane SMAS lift, mid face lift, lunchtime facelift, and an assortment of other complicated facelift terms. This sea of possibilities leaves patients wondering, “Which facelift technique is right for me?”

Many of these terms are simply marketing ploys, ways to encourage patients to seek facelift surgery. Dr. Sayed doesn’t need or use these terms to attract potential patients. Our facelift patients come to us for our results, and many travel great distances for facelift surgery with our double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tim Sayed. Forget about the MACS lift and the mini facelift and choose a surgeon that will customize your approach, creating a natural looking facelift result, no fancy terminology needed.

A Customized Facelift Approach for Better Results

Your face is one of a kind. Your facelift surgery should be too. We believe in providing a personalized facelift experience to each of our patients. Dr. Sayed will work with you to customize your surgery and to integrate the surgical techniques that will yield your best results. He is well versed in the many different types of facelift surgery available, and will create a custom-to-you facial rejuvenation plan that taps into these techniques for a smooth, natural looking result.

Dr. Sayed begins the facelift process with an in-depth consultation. This consultation is the key to his success as a plastic surgeon. Dr. Sayed will examine your face and pinpoint your biggest areas of concern. We’ll talk about lifestyle, goals, and priorities for your surgery. We’ll review your medical and health history to ensure facelift surgery is a safe option. Once he understands your objectives for surgery, Dr. Sayed will share his recommendations for facial rejuvenation. We typically recommend a comprehensive approach that combines facelift surgery with other procedures like a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or laser rejuvenation. Your plan will be meticulously crafted to address your concerns and goals. We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all.

Achieving Your Best Facelift Results

Although we don’t use marketing jargon and branded terms to describe our facelifts, we do rely on carefully developed and executed techniques. Dr. Sayed is a double board certified plastic surgeon with extensive training in plastic surgery for the face and body. He performs facelift surgery using sophisticated techniques that address the underlying causes of aging, creating a result that will last and age gracefully as the aging process continues.

Our facelift does more than simply tighten facial tissues, it addresses aging deep within the face, lifting and tightening the deeper layers under the skin. SMAS, a layer of connective tissue and musculature under the skin, is tightened and lifted using internal sutures. We may also use fat grafting to restore a youthful facial volume or internal grafting to support facial tissues. Since each procedure is customized to the patient’s needs, your facelift may use these techniques or others. One thing is consistent through all of our facelifts and that is our commitment to achieving the best possible results.
