Exploring the Different Types of Facelifts With Dr. Adam Becker

Types of FaceliftsIn the pursuit of maintaining a youthful appearance, many individuals turn to cosmetic procedures to address the signs of aging. Among the most popular and effective options is a facelift, a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin on the face and neck. However, it’s essential to understand that not all facelifts are created equal. In this blog post, Dr. Adam Becker, Facial Plastic Surgeon at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery, addresses the various types of facelifts that he performs on his patients in Raleigh, NC to achieve the most beautiful, natural looking results.

The facelift, sometimes referred to as a full-facelift, is the gold standard in facial rejuvenation of the lower face and neck and encompasses a variety of techniques. This procedure targets the cheek, jowl and neck area, addressing sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and repositioning certain areas of facial volume. During surgery, incisions are made along the hairline, extending around the ear. The underlying tissues are then tightened, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is re-draped for a more youthful appearance.

Deep Plane Facelift
The deep plane facelift is a comprehensive surgical technique that Dr. Becker most often uses during facelift surgery. This procedure involves repositioning not only the skin but also a layer of underlying muscle and connective tissues called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). By lifting and repositioning this deeper layer of the face, a deep plane facelift offers long-lasting results and addresses significant sagging in the mid-face, jowls, and neck. Recovery time may be a bit longer compared to other facelift techniques due to the more comprehensive nature of the procedure.

Mini Facelift
As the name suggests, a mini facelift is a less invasive alternative to the facelift. It focuses on improving the lower portion of the face, particularly the jowl, nasolabial folds and jawline. This procedure involves more limited incisions compared to a full facelift. While it provides a more targeted rejuvenation, a mini facelift is an excellent option for individuals with moderate signs of aging that are more limited to the lower face and who desire a less invasive approach.

The mid-facelift, also called a cheek lift, concentrates on the middle region of the face. It targets sagging cheeks and deep nasolabial folds. The incisions for a mid-facelift are typically made within the hairline. This technique allows the surgeon to lift and reposition the underlying fat and soft tissues, restoring youthful volume and contour to the cheeks and under-eye area.

Each type of facelift mentioned above offers unique benefits and is tailored to address specific areas of concern. Whether you opt for a traditional facelift, a mini facelift, a mid-facelift, or a deep plane facelift, it’s crucial to have a thorough understanding of the procedure, its expected outcomes, and the recovery process. During your consultation with Dr. Becker, he will provide a full exam, listen to your concerns and discuss the options that will best achieve the most natural looking and long-lasting results and restore your confidence so you can put your best face forward.

Droopy Nose Q&A w/Dr. Becker

“Droopy nose” (aka nasal tip ptosis) occurs when the tip of the nose hooks downward or is elongated, rather than pointing forward and elevated. Dr. Adam Becker, award-winning facial plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty expert in Raleigh, NC, often treats patients with droopy nose to correct a droopy nasal tip and yield a beautiful, balanced nasal profile. Dr. Becker is here to answer the most commonly asked questions about a droopy nose.

Q: Why does the nose start to droop with age? Is it just the tip or the entire nose?

A: The nasal tip can often begin to droop starting around 30-40 years of age. This happens because the cartilages that form the tip of the nose are held in place by ligamentous structures. These ligaments, as well as the soft tissue components, begin to relax and this can cause the tip to begin to rotate downward.

Q: Is a droopy nose more common in men? Women? Both?

A: There is very little literature regarding gender differences in age related tip drooping. One group of researchers did not see a difference between men and women.

Q: Will a previous rhinoplasty do anything to limit the amount of drooping?

A: Possibly. Not all rhinoplasty surgeons use the same techniques, but when the surgeon uses techniques that strengthen the tip support, then there is potential to resist age related drooping.

Q: What do you suggest for those people who are genetically inclined to experience drooping? Is there anything they can do from a proactive viewpoint to limit the drooping?

A: Outside of living a healthy lifestyle, there are no known strategies to limit tip drooping. It’s just part of the aging process.

Q: What are some of the reasons for the droopiness?

A: Aside from age related tip drooping, some other causes of a droopy nasal tip include trauma, which can damage the supporting ligaments or the cartilages of the nasal tip. Some individuals also have a droopy nasal tip due to their inherent nasal shape.

Q: What are the best solutions for lifting a droopy tip? What if someone doesn’t want to go through with surgery?

A: Surgery is most often the only solution for a droopy nasal tip. In certain patients, dermal fillers can be used to give the appearance of a more elevated tip. This should be done by an experienced injector as filler injections into the nose carry some risk of damage to the skin due to the unique anatomy of the nose compared to other areas of the face.

If you’re concerned with a droopy nose and want to learn more about your options to improve your nasal profile, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Becker and he will provide you with a full assessment and recommended treatment plan for you.
