A-Lift/Face and Neck Lift

The A-Lift is the signature procedure of the Almonte Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is recommended for patients with decreased elasticity in the skin due to age, changes in weight, sun damage or emotional stress.  Dr. Almonte’s A-Lift reduces the appearance of jowls, smoothes out loose skin on the face, tightens the underlying tissue and removes excess fat creating a more defined jaw line and youthful face and neck profile. As a result, your face will appear firmer and more refreshed.

Making The Face More Youthful

Some of the most visible signs of aging first appear on the face. Although the changes appear gradually, there may come a day when you look in the mirror and decide that the face you see doesn’t reflect the way you feel about yourself.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Facelift?

Facelifts are most commonly performed on patients in the 40-60 age range. However, the procedure can produce good results for people in their 60s, 70s and 80s as well. You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you have any of the following types of conditions:

  • A deep line that runs from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth known as the “nasolabial fold”
  • Loss of a well-defined jawline – Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the cheekbones known as jowls
  • Loose skin, wrinkles, or excess fatty tissue in the neck.

 

Facelift surgery needs to be approached with extra caution if you have any of the following medical conditions:

  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure
  • Blood-clotting problems
  • The tendency to form excessive scars
