Dr. Steven Lynch normally performs facelift surgery on an outpatient basis in a hospital or surgical center. Some medical conditions may necessitate an overnight hospital stay. Dr. Lynch will discuss these options with you during your consultation.

 

Incisions are placed close to the hairline and the front of the ears as well as behind the ears. In some cases, if the skin of the neck requires tightening, incisions will be made in the area below the chin. Next, excess fatty tissue from the neck and chin areas are removed. Then, muscle and tissue is tightened, any excess skin is removed, and the skin is repositioned.

 

Facelift vs. Mini Facelift

 

A mini facelift is ideal for patients who have minimal sagging in the lower face. This technique has reduced surgical time and an milder recovery than a traditional facelift.
