One of the surgical cosmetic procedures we offer is a face lift, which helps our patients rejuvenate their skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.
Our Dothan Cosmetic Surgeon
Face lifts are performed by our board-certified Facial Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Richard W. Bryant. Dr. Bryant completed his fellowship in oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery under world-renowned cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills, California, and brought his highly-specialized training back to Eye Center South. He provides patients with thorough and compassionate care and uses his attention to detail and expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery to create exemplary results.
What is a Face Lift?
As people age, their skin begins to lose its elasticity and starts to sag. This can deepen fold lines around the nose and mouth, and lead to the development of jowls and loose neck skin. Different factors—like sun damage, smoking, stress, and genetics—can play a role in how severely aging will affect each individual’s skin over time.
A face lift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves signs of aging in your face and neck. It reduces sagging skin on your cheeks and jawline and smooths out deep wrinkles by tightening the muscle underneath. Depending on your specific skin and aesthetic goals, implants or dermal fillers may also help to restore lost volume in areas like the cheeks and chin.
How are Face Lifts Performed?
A face lift is procedure that involves adjusting connective tissues and muscles underneath affected skin and removing excess sagging skin from the face and neck. The result is a more youthful, revitalized appearance that shows off the natural contours of the face.
There are several ways for a face lift to be performed, and how and where the procedure is completed will depend on a variety of factors unique to each case. When you come to Eye Center South for your consultation, Dr. Bryant will evaluate the structure and anatomy of your face and speak with you about your personal goals to decide which method he will use to perform your face lift.
Does Insurance Cover Face Lifts?
Since face lifts are considered a cosmetic surgery, insurance providers typically will not cover the cost without a medical reason. Other reconstructive procedures that are sometimes performed in conjunction with a facelift, like an upper blepharoplasty, can be covered by health insurance if deemed medically necessary by your health insurance provider.
