Dr. Becker at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina has many years of experience and expertise in facelift surgery that will leave you with more youthful, natural-looking results that you’ve been longing for.
A facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging on the face and neck.
During a facelift, the facial skin is lifted using carefully hidden openings, and deeper facial tissues are moved to a more youthful position. Excess skin is gently tightened and trimmed. The result is a smoother, more youthful contour without over-tightening the facial skin.
There are a spectrum of different facelifts and many different surgical techniques available to meet the needs of a particular patient. Regardless of the technique, proper modification of the underlying structures beneath the surface of the skin, including fatty tissue, muscles and layers of tissues that bridge the muscles of expression, is critical for a beautiful, natural-looking, and longer-lasting results. If the underlying structure isn’t re-contoured, the memory of the tissues tends to cause a rapid return of the aging skin.
Raleigh’s own Dr. Becker’s specialized training and expertise in facial anatomy allows him to customize a surgical plan that is unique to each individual patient and their anatomy. During your in-depth consultation, Dr. Becker will discuss your anti-aging goals with you and conduct a full facial evaluation to determine the most appropriate surgical technique for your facelift.
During your facelift surgery, Dr. Becker will use well-hidden openings (typically along the hairline and behind the ears) to remove excess facial skin, while smoothing deep folds and wrinkles and tightening loose skin to restore your natural youthful facial appearance. Thanks to his meticulous placement of surgical openings, visible scarring from the procedure is typically of little concern. Individual results may vary.
Dr. Becker uses IV sedation and a local anesthetic, to ensure you are pain-free and comfortable during your facelift, which help prevent grogginess and post-operative nausea that some patients experience with general anesthesia. For patients that are wary of deep sedation, Dr. Becker is also very experienced performing facelift procedures with oral sedation and a special type of local anesthetic called tumescent anesthesia. This means no IV is needed and patients are drowsy, but do not need to be completely asleep. He and his friendly staff are well known and commended for the compassionate care they provide for their patients.
