During a facelift, Dr. Kieu excises extra skin and tightens your facial muscles to create a more youthful middle and lower face. Many patients who are unhappy with their facial appearance also have neck sagging and wrinkling, so Dr. Kieu often performs a neck lift at the same time as a facelift.
With a combined face and neck lift procedure, you can look years younger. If you want a more youthful look for your upper face, procedures like eyelid surgery and brow lift may work well.
Dr. Kieu specializes in creating natural-looking results. Many of her face and neck lift patients say that they simply look like their younger selves again.
If your facial skin and neck are sagging, drooping, and developing lines and wrinkles, a face and neck lift might be a good option for you. Most face and neck lift patients are in their 40s or older, but Dr. Kieu evaluates each patient individually to determine whether the procedure is the right choice.
Dr. Kieu checks your bone structure, skin elasticity, skin condition, and the potential incision sites to determine how a facelift, and neck lift if desired, could work for you. She'll even show you a projection of your expected results so you can decide if you're ready to move ahead.
Dr. Kieu performs face and neck lift surgery while you're completely comfortable under anesthesia. She makes tiny incisions in your hairline, behind your ears, and sometimes under the chin, where concealing the stitches from surgery is ideal.
Dr. Kieu trims excess skin and tightens the muscles and ligaments below to create a new firm support system for your face and neck skin. She repositions your skin, using tiny stitches to complete your procedure.
Most patients return to their normal activities in two weeks or less. Thanks to the advanced technique Dr. Kieu uses, most patients have minimal pain after surgery. Dr. Kieu prescribes pain medication, but you may only need over-the-counter drugs.
You'll wear bandages until your follow-up appointment, but you can speak and eat as usual with the bandages. You'll see the ultimate final result at around six months post-surgery.
