What Can a Fort Lauderdale Facelift Help Correct?

But there are also other factors associated with getting older that have long been considered just another part of getting older, but when you take advantage of a facelift Fort Lauderdale has relied on to reverse the years of a person, you can keep the good while repairing the undesirable. Some of the signs of aging that our facelifts in South Florida can correct are:

  • Sagging in the midface and lower face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids and cheeks
  • Fat deposits in the neck and along the lower jawline
  • Loss of volume (fat) in the face, cheeks, and around the eyes
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw, can create the appearance of a double chin and/or turkey neck, even in someone of average weight.

Our Fort Lauderdale plastic surgery center is one of the premier providers of treatment that will reverse these signs of aging so that you can look as good as you feel as you go into your wiser years. But to truly understand why Dr. Zoran Potparic is the best facelift surgeon in South Florida, you need to know the specifics of this treatment.

A full facelift involves mid-face, lower face, and neck rejuvenation. Dr. Potparic removes excess fat deposits from the neck, under the chin, and jowls by a combination of liposuction and direct excision with scissors then tighten the loose muscle in the middle of the neck to create a sharp angle between the lower jaw, chin, and neck.

He pulls facial muscles (SMAS) up and back to improve the jawline, lift the cheeks, and increase fullness around the eyes. Additionally, the doctor pulls the superficial muscles of the neck back up to further contour the neck.

The procedure next calls for the skin of the face and neck, which was separated from muscles, to be gently pulled up and back and draped over the tightened muscles, followed by conservative removal of excess skin.

The face/neck lift scar is placed in the crease in front of the ear and in the groove behind the ear, and a short scar is placed below the chin. These scars generally heal well and become difficult to notice after one year. Until scars completely mature (6 to 12 months), they can be successfully covered with makeup.

In order to improve lost facial volume in selected patients, Dr. Potparic uses fat grafting or dermal filler injections. Fat grafts are typically injected with a small cannula into the cheeks and along the junction between cheeks and the lower eyelids where deep grooves are present. Both lower and upper lips (deep muscles) are injected with fat to increase their fullness. An injection of fat grafts or fillers softens deep grooves around the mouth (nasolabial fold and marionette lines).

Many facelift patients, who come to our practice from Boca Raton and other nearby communities, frequently opt to have other procedures, such as forehead lift (browlift) and eyelid surgery, performed in addition to face/neck lift.
