Face and Neck Lift
Our face is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. The loss of facial volume combined with decreased skin elasticity can result in sagging and a sunken appearance. There are myriad facelift techniques, and Dr. Born’s singular approach combines a number of them, along with fat grafting and eyelid surgery in order to achieve the most naturally beautiful results. There is no one-size-fits-all facelift so Dr. Born works closely with patients, listening to their concerns, evaluating their goals, and customizing a surgical plan tailored to their anatomy and its unique requirements. He uses an individualized approach to enhance your individual beauty.
What It Is
Rhytidectomy or facelift surgery refers to correction of the face from the eyes down to the collarbone. The procedure is designed to restore a more youthful appearance by reducing deep facial folds and excess sagging skin, while maintaining and enhancing your natural structure. Dr. Born takes a distinctly modern approach to the facelift, a complete departure from the stereotypical tight, overly “pulled” look. Instead of focusing primarily on skin lifting and tightening, Dr. Born’s Modern Facelift takes a wider-angle view, addressing the loss of facial volume with a 3D perspective, while simultaneously working to correct skin laxity using new techniques that support the facial structure. Dr. Born does it by shaping the deep facial tissue so it re-positions and restores the underlying foundation of the face—essentially lifting, or re-building the structure from the bottom up. This includes repositioning the fat and fascia that has fallen or become lax over the years. Dr. Born often includes fat grafting with his facelift surgery, resulting in a much softer, rested and more youthful appearance. It’s a technique that the doctor, who is regarded as one of the most technically advanced surgeons in North America, has helped pioneer.
Dr. Born’s Modern Facelift offers a transformation that is dramatic, but that never looks “done.”
Is It for Me?
Age is only part of the conversation and certainly not the sole deciding factor in determining who may be an ideal candidate for facelift surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Born will perform a full physical assessment in order to gather the information he needs to develop a thorough treatment strategy. You will also discuss your personal goals and concerns. With all of this in mind, Dr. Born will determine which surgical technique and approach should be used in order to guarantee the best outcome with the least amount of risk.
What to Expect
During your consultation with Dr. Born patients will discuss every aspect of their care. The goal is to provide patients with the best results, the fastest recovery and the highest standard in post-operative care.
It is important to remember that facelift surgery is not for everyone. Dr. Born will discuss all of the potential risks associated with your facial surgery in detail during your private consultation. You can help minimize certain risks by following the advice and instructions of the doctor, both before and after your surgery. Our pre-operative screening process is designed to determine if patients are indeed ideal candidates for surgery.
