Look years younger with a facelift procedure from an experienced plastic surgeon near New Jersey

As we get older, our face begins to lose volume and definition. Where there was once smooth, supple skin, there are now harsh lines and wrinkles. At the office of Dr. Edmund Kwan, we help New Jersey patients get back their youthful, well defined facial features with the help of facelifts.

What is a facelift ?

A facelift is an anti-aging surgery that can make the face appear smoother and younger. It works by removing excess fat and also tightening muscle of face and neck. Facelifts do not stop the aging process but can be very effective at redefining the contours of the face.

For patients who are not as concerned with excess skin, mid-face lifts can reposition the cheeks and smooth out the nasolabial folds. Facelifts can be stand-alone procedures or performed in conjunction with a forehead lift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery.

Candidates for facelifts

Must be in good overall health without any pre-existing conditions

  • Have lost skin elasticity and firmness in the face and neck
  • Have loose skin or excess fat underneath the chin and around the jaw

The Consultation

During your facelift consultation, Dr. Kwan will examine your face and neck to evaluate your bone structure, skin elasticity, muscle structure, and tissue. He will discuss expectations for the procedure along with risks involved to determine if a facelift is right for you.

The Face Lift Procedure

Specifics of your facelift will vary, based upon your needs and goals. It’s important to note that while a facelift will improve the face and neck, it will not fundamentally alter your appearance.

Incisions are typically made in the hairline and follow down around the ear, ending at the bottom of the scalp. Once the incisions are made, fat can be removed or redistributed. Tissue is also repositioned, and excess skin is removed.
