The passage of time is inevitable. As the years go by, facial and neck skin begins to loosen and the appearance of our face and neck ages. Dr. Clevens employs a tailor made natural facelift technique that addresses your unique concerns and facial anatomy to turn back the clock. Specializing in deep plane facelift, Dr. Clevens enables you to discover a long-lasting and natural appearing youthful chin and neckline. A true master of this procedure, Dr. Clevens recognizes that fat and tissue contribute as much to facial appearance as the underlying muscle and the overlying skin. A truly complete and comprehensive face lift with the most natural outcome will reduce, redistribute and in some cases add fat to the face.
Through state-of-the-art sophisticated facelifting techniques, Dr. Clevens strives to achieve a natural and rested facial appearance.
Crows feet appear around the corners of the eyes, fine forehead lines become deeper creases and folds. The jawline softens into jowls. Folds begin to appear beneath the chin and neck. Facelift is a procedure where a person’s face skin is tightened to give a younger looking appearance. Because of aging and gravity the skin on a person’s face can tend to sag and feel droopy. It is in this moment when a face lift surgery becomes a great option to look younger. In the facelift surgery, the incisions are regularly placed in areas where they will not be visible so that the patient has a natural appearance.
Feeling that patients want to look better, not different, Dr. Clevens concentrates on lifting and repositioning your facial fat and tightening your muscles to achieve a natural and more youthful and rested facial appearance. Facelifting is among the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures that Dr. Clevens performs and is often combined with eyelid surgery, browlift, cosmetic laser skin resurfacing to achieve an enhanced appearance.
The modern facelift has moved away from using skin tension to contour the face. As a face ages the changes include fat loosening and descending to sit lower in the face. The result is that the face looks longer and more square in shape. Young faces tend to be tapered or angular. Thus, the most important aspect of a facelift is to improve facial shape while limiting signs that a surgical procedure has been performed.
