Chicago Face Lift Surgery

A face lift surgery (whether it is a surgical face lift or non-surgical or weekend face lift) restores smoother, more pleasing contours to your face and neck. It can help you look as good as you feel, and perhaps feel younger than you are. There are many different types of face lift surgeries and a personal consultation with our Chicago plastic surgeon is the best place to start.

Among the many options are procedures such as a short scar face lift, mini face lift, weekend face lifting... The list goes on and on. Non surgical face lifts are also a possibility. Among the hottest trends in this area are endoscopic face lifts, midface lifting, and short scar lifts. The term "face lift in a bottle" usually refers to Botox.

Face lift surgery is here to stay. The results are even more natural than ever, as a greater emphasis is placed on looking more youthful and rejuvenated - not simply looking tighter!

Dr Speron has a tremendous amount of experience with face lift surgery in Chicago. It is one of the most common procedures he performs. He is able to offer all types of options to his patients:

  • he performs all the various S-scar face lift, mini face lift, mid face lift and neck lift approaches including minimally invasive and short-scar approaches
  • he does not typically use drains for face lift surgery
  • he offers the pain pump, if patients request it (his patients typically take narcotics for 24 hours even without this)
  • all patients receive "nerve blocks" during surgery when they are asleep, which means the pain cycle is controlled from the very beginning

Am I a good candidate for a natural face lift or a mini face lift (or short scar face lift or weekend face lift)?
Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for a natural face lift or mini face lift:

  • a deep line, or fold, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
  • jowls, or loss of a well-defined jaw line associated with youthfulness.
  • deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the "highlight" areas of the cheekbones.
  • loose skin, wrinkles, vertical "cords" or excess fatty tissue in the neck.

A natural face lift or mini face lift can improve all of these problems. It cannot, however, correct conditions such as sagging eyebrows, excess skin and fatty deposits in the upper and lower eyelids, or wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Speron can provide further face lift information if you have an interest in other procedures to treat these areas. Please read the rest of our face lift information. We would also be happy to mail you some more face lift information if you would email us your information.

Weekend Face Lift Surgery - Chicago, Illinois
(Also known as mini face lift or short scar face lift or weekend face lift)

Your Personal Weekend Face Lift Surgery Consultation - Chicago, Illinois
During the initial mini face lift or weekend face lift consultation, Dr Speron will ask you to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. Sometimes, patients may focus their attention on excess skin in the upper eyelids and not realize that sagging of their eyebrows contributes to this skin redundancy. You should be very frank in discussing anything about your appearance that bothers you, as well as what you hope to achieve with weekend face lift surgery. This will help Dr Speron to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

How will Dr Speron evaluate me for a short scar face lift or weekend face lift surgery?
In evaluating you for weekend face lift surgery, Dr Speron will assess the thickness, texture and elasticity of your skin, and the severity of wrinkles and folds. Your hairline will be examined to determine where incisions can be discreetly placed. All of these factors, as well as your bone structure and underlying tissues, will be considered in developing an individual surgical plan.

Dr Speron may discuss with you additional procedures that can be performed along with a weekend face lift in order to address all the concerns you have identified. For example, a weekend face lift is frequently combined with a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, nasal reshaping or skin treatments such as a fotofacial, chemical peel, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.

Face Lift Surgery & Mid Face Lift Surgery

How Cosmetic Face Lift Surgery & Mid Face Lift Surgery is Performed

Because of individual factors, not everyone will achieve the same results from a cosmetic surgery face lift. Dr Speron will select the surgical technique that he feels will obtain the best face lift outcome for you.

Where are the Face Lift surgery and Mid Face Lift incisions placed?
Although there are many variations to the face lift and mid face lift procedures, generally an incision is hidden in the natural contour of your ear, then extends around the earlobe and back into the hairline. A short scar face lift does not have the incision behind your ear. The mid face lift usually also requires a small intraoral incision. Following face lift surgery and mid face lift surgery, incisions can be easily concealed by your hair or with makeup. There may also be a small incision hidden underneath your chin if a stronger neck lift is desired.

facelift-2

Incisions usually begin above the hairline at the temples, follow the natural line in front of the ear, curve behind the earlobe into the crease behind the ear, and into or along the lower scalp.

 

facelift-3

Facial, neck tissue and muscle may be separated; fat may be trimmed or suctioned and underlying muscle may be tightened.

After deep tissues are tightened, the excess skin is pulled up and back, trimmed and surured into place.

Most of the scars will be hidden within your hair and in the normal creases of your skin.
