Types of Facelifts

Facelift surgeries are intended to lift and firm sagging skin, giving patients a more youthful, rested, and simply better appearance. Facelift surgery is individualized to the patient’s needs and Dr. Quintero will adjust his technique accordingly. 

A quick Google search will tell you the many kinds of facelifts one can receive. While there are many facelift methods, the three most important terms for you to understand are an upper facelift, mid facelift, and lower facelift. Knowing which area you want to target will help you determine the type of facelift that best suits your needs. 

Defining Facelift Types

An upper facelift deals with the area above your eyes, including your browline and forehead. A mid facelift describes the area from the corners of your eyes to the corners of your mouth. Finally, a lower facelift involves the areas below the corners of your mouth such as your laugh lines, jawline, chin, and neck. 

Many patients believe that a facelift treats your whole face. On the contrary, a facelift usually targets the lower two-thirds of the face.

Understanding these terms will help you figure out which type of facelift is right for you. From there, we can build a customized plan based on your goals and desired results. 

Other Options

Of course, there are other options if you are unsure if you want to go the route of noninvasive treatments. These include injectable dermal fillers which can be used to smooth wrinkles, fill out areas, and plump the skin. Injectables can be a great way to avoid or delay the need for a facelift. You can also opt for FaceTite, a noninvasive method used to tighten the skin and improve loose and saggy areas of the skin.
