Facelift surgery, or a rhytidectomy, is designed to restore a more youthful appearance by removing major wrinkles and sagging skin. It involves tightening of the facial and neck muscles as well as the removal of any excess skin. Overtime, the skin sags and folds in the chin, jawline and neck become prominent. This is largely due to sun exposure, natural aging and genetics. Not only does a facelift improve facial appearance but also has a dramatic effect on the neck, enhancing its contour and profile.
A facelift is frequently performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), forehead lift, chin augmentation, and/or liposuction to create an overall rejuvenation of the face.
Dr. Casey’s unique techniques employ the least invasive methods possible. Incisions are short and are hidden in the hairline, behind the ear, and even in the eyelids. Excess skin is removed and sagging muscles and connective tissues are tightened. In some cases, fatty deposits are removed from beneath the chin and neck (Liposuction) for additional skin tightening and esthetics. Dr. Casey’s goal is to deliver a natural-looking facial rejuvenation with no tell-tale signs of surgery.
Facelifts are performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art operating room with either local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. This is the most cost-effective solution compared to the additional costs incurred from an outpatient facility or hospital. We have offices in Bonita Springs / North Naples, Marco Island, and Fort Myers.
