What facial procedures are commonly combined?
Because the periorbital area shows signs of aging earlier than the face and neck, the majority of patients who undergo facial aesthetic surgery in our practice consider eyelid rejuvenation, including blepharoplasty, at some point in their rejuvenation plan.
In some cases, depending upon a patient’s unique anatomy as well as the effects of the aging process, procedures such as a brow lift, chin augmentation or even ear contouring are performed concurrently.
At Total Aesthetics some of our most exciting innovations involve combining today’s high-tech non-invasive procedures with more traditional surgical techniques. A good example would be combining a mini-facelift with neck contouring utilizing AccuTite to minimize cost, recovery time and scars – we even combine the non-invasive techniques to avoid surgery altogether.
Are fat transfers used during facelifts?
Dr. O’Connell believes that, because of the natural volume deflating nature of the aging process, with rare exceptions, nothing should be removed from the deeper structures of the face.
Whenever possible, he prefers procedures that enhance facial volume or provide the illusion of volume enhancement. Depending upon each patient’s anatomy, fat transfers can be utilized concomitantly with a facelift or as a stand-alone procedure to assist with volume enhancement.
Are non-surgical procedures combined with facelifts?
The majority of facelift patients has already had, and will continue to use non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX® and injectable fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®. We feel these non-surgical options can help refine and maintain your more youthful, beautiful appearance.
At Total Aesthetics, we commonly combine the latest surgical and non-surgical procedures for state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation. We have the latest non-invasive technology including lasers, IPL, Halo and radiofrequency based treatments like FaceTite and AccuTite – all designed to optimize your aesthetic results and minimize your recovery.
What about skin care and facelifts?
At Total Aesthetics, we believe that beautiful skin is a vital, but often overlooked, element of a youthful and harmonious facial appearance. All of our facial rejuvenation patients are encouraged to begin with an individualized skin-care program that addresses both therapeutic and maintenance goals. The latest chemical peels, intense pulsed light, laser, and radiofrequency based therapies and ever PRP are combined with other facial aesthetic procedures to optimize your results.
