Rejuvenate & Refresh
The Lower Face

A lower facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed to address signs of aging in the lower region of the face. It primarily targets sagging skin, deep creases, jowls, and excess fat deposits around the chin and jawline. By tightening the underlying muscles and removing excess tissue, a lower facelift aims to rejuvenate and refresh the lower face, resulting in a more youthful and defined appearance. It is often combined with a neck lift to ensure harmonious results.

Lower Facelift Corrects:

  • Sagging skin on the lower face
  • Deep creases and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Jowls and loss of jawline definition
  • Excess fat deposits in the chin and neck area

Lower Facelift Surgical Details

During a lower facelift, you will undergo a comprehensive surgical process tailored to your needs. Typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, the surgery involves several key steps.

First, incisions are carefully made in inconspicuous locations, such as behind the ears, along the natural creases of the face, or along the hairline to minimize visible scarring. The underlying muscles are tightened, excess fat is removed or repositioned, and the skin is meticulously redraped to create a smoother appearance.

The incisions are closed with sutures or surgical staples, and dressings are applied to aid in the healing process.

Sometimes, a lower facelift may be combined with other procedures, like a neck lift or fat transfer, to optimize the overall results. Dr. Mehta, a skilled plastic surgeon, will guide you through each step of the process, ensuring your comfort and safety.

Candidates for Lower Facelift:

  • Individuals experiencing sagging skin and wrinkles in the lower face
  • Those with jowls and a loss of jawline definition
  • Patients with excess fat deposits in the chin and neck area
  • Men and women looking to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance
  • Those in good overall health and with realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Those who are non-smokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure

The Recovery Process

After your lower facelift, please follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Mehta to facilitate a smooth recovery. Initially, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. It is recommended to keep your head elevated and apply cold compresses to minimize swelling. You should avoid strenuous activities and follow a modified diet as advised by your surgeon. As the weeks progress, the swelling will subside, and you will start to see the full results of your lower facelift.

The recovery timeline varies for each individual, but most patients can return to work and resume light activities within a week or two. However, it is essential to avoid any strenuous exercise or activities that may strain the treated areas for several weeks. Dr. Mehta will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and provide guidance on when you can fully resume your normal routine. With proper care and patience, you will experience a rejuvenated lower face and a boost in self-confidence.
