We all want to age gracefully, but most of us would prefer to do so without jowls, wrinkles, loose skin, and other factors that can create a tired or unattractive appearance. Dr. Henry understands these concerns and strives to provide artistic, natural looking facelifts to Marin County, Sonoma, and other Northern California residents.
In Marin County, potential facelift patients may want to undergo surgery to correct some of the problems we usually associate with aging. A facelift is still the most effective way to correct visible signs of aging such as deep cheek folds, jowls, and loose neck skin. A facelift can smooth loose skin on your face and neck, tighten underlying tissues, and remove excess fat. Heredity, skin texture, and bone structure all play a role in how many “years” a facelift can “remove,” and they also influence how long it will last, to some extent.
Marin County facelift surgeon Kimberly Henry, MD, offers procedures that range in scope from what could be called a “mini-facelift” to a standard facelift, depending on the patient’s desired results and the extent of his or her skin laxity. Incisions are made within the hairline or on the margin above the ear, and they typically extend to behind or below the ear. One of Dr. Henry’s primary goals with every procedure is to make the most inconspicuous incisions possible.
For facelift patients who don’t have significant amounts of excess skin, an endoscopic facelift may provide an attractive option. A minimally invasive procedure, an endoscopic facelift requires small incisions placed inconspicuously around the hairline in accordance with your individualized surgical plan.
In patients experiencing pronounced sagging in the cheek area, a procedure called a mid- facelift can be ideal. In this procedure, incisions are often made inside the lower eyelid, or may be placed in another area that provides superior access to the central cheek region.
Regardless of your particular situation, Dr. Henry can customize a facelift procedure to give your face elegant, refined, and natural looking improvement and rejuvenation. Contact one of our offices today to schedule a consultation.
