Lower Facelift Surgery
One of the first facial areas to show signs of aging and gravity is the lower third of the face. The bottom of the cheeks or jowls can begin to sag, and the jawline and upper neck become less defined. For many people, this can begin to occur in the 40s and early 50s, but everyone ages at different stages. For these first early signs of facial aging, a lower facelift surgery may be the appropriate facial rejuvenation procedure.
What Is a Lower Facelift?
While conventional and more advanced facelifts like deep plane or SMAS address the midface, lower face and upper neck, a lower facelift is more targeted. This is usually designed for those with minimal excess skin, but the beginning stages of sagging in the lower third of the face. While a deep plane facelift has many benefits for those with more advanced sagging and excess skin, not everyone requires this level of facial rejuvenation.
With a lower facelift procedure, smaller incisions are made for less scarring. The procedure is less invasive than traditional or deep plane facelifts, which address a larger area and require more tissue and skin adjustments. The benefits of a lower facelift are a shorter recovery time and discreet incisions in comparison to some other facelift procedures.
