WHAT TYPE OF FACELIFT ?
We believe you should use the right tool for the right job. There are many different "types" of facelifts. Some very good and useful, some not so much! The best way to keep them straight is to think of them in categories. First is the standard facelift. This involves an incision in front of and behind the ear. There are different techniques used but the important thing is for the surgeon to perform the procedure with which he/she has had the most success.
Second are the short-scar or so called "mini" facelifts. These involve an incision primarily in front of the ear only. They are useful if there is not as much aging involved and a large neck correction is not needed. Finally there are the lifts done with barbed sutures. It is our opinion that these do not last long enough to justify the cost/risk. Our surgeons at Sculptura Aesthetic Surgery Centre keep upto date with the latest techniques and trends.
