Facelift Surgery - Mini & Full Facelifts
Serving Knoxville, Sevierville, Knox County & nearby areas of Tennessee
As we age, our faces lose definition and depth of a more youthful appearance. One of the most effective ways to eliminate the signs of aging in the face is with a facelift. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers like JUVEDERM® can help by reducing the appearance of minor or light wrinkles, they cannot correct deep set wrinkles and excess loose skin like a facelift can. A facelift offers much more dramatic results than less invasive procedures because it involves lifting the skin and muscles of the face.
By addressing each patient’s desires and goals on an individual and personal basis, Dr. Kleto can help his Knoxville, Tennessee area patients reverse an aged facial appearance with a full facelift or mini facelift. All facelifts involve tightening facial muscles and tissue, and then redraping the skin. Some patients may require the removal of excess fat in their face and neck to ensure a smooth and bulge-free appearance.
Types of Facelift Surgery
Full Facelift – In a full facelift, Dr. Kleto rejuvenates areas of the face that include the midface, lower face and jowls, as well as the neck. Involving the neck is sometimes referred to as a neck lift. Pulling excess skin, muscle and tissue back into place creates a tighter appearance for the patient, removing wrinkles, sagging jowls, and other indications of aging
Mini facelift – A mini facelift targets specific areas that the patient feels need to be corrected, but does not warrant a full facelift. Areas commonly targeted in a mini facelift include sagging facial skin, neck fat, jowls, and sagging neck muscles.
No two patients look alike, nor require the same type of facelift. Recovery after a facelift usually takes a couple of weeks on average, but some patients will see less swelling or bruising than others. Dr. Kleto will address all of your questions and concerns during the initial consultation.
