Facelift & Neck Lift

As we age, our face changes from an upside-down triangle shape, with high cheekbones and a tapered jawline to a boxy or right-side-up triangle. The deflation of our facial fat compartments and loss of skin elasticity leads to the formation of jowls and laxity of skin in the face as well as the neck region. Overall, the lower third of our face and neck becomes heavier-appearing due to skin and soft tissue laxity. Also, skin thickness and elasticity diminish, leading to the development of wrinkles and areas of discoloration that are bothersome to many patients. A strategic facelift and neck lift with Dr. Dayan in Reno/Tahoe will address each of these issues to restore natural volume, balance and youthful contours to the face and neck.

How Are a Facelift and Neck Lift Performed?

Dr. Dayan takes a personalized, meticulously detailed approach to your facial surgery, tailoring his techniques to your facial structure and aesthetic goals. Results are balanced to reflect harmony among all the features, which creates a naturally youthful-looking outcome. The spontaneity of your facial expressions are preserved, as well as your individuality. Dr. Dayan’s goal is to rejuvenate your appearance, not alter it.

Dr. Dayan has published and presented nationally and internationally on his preferred technique for face and neck rejuvenation. He is also co-author of the authoritative textbook: Facial Danger Zones: Staying Safe with Surgery, Fillers and Noninvasives. Having trained under world leaders in facial reconstruction and facial aesthetics, his approach is scientific and comprehensive to restore a youthful appearance.

As we age, facial fat compartments are known to deflate, particularly in the mid-face region. Therefore, an important component of facial rejuvenation is to re-volumize the midface and cheek regions. Dr. Dayan most commonly performs this restoration with your own fat that is removed from one area using a delicate liposuction technique and is then transferred to facial fat compartments for a natural revolumization.

Next, incisions are strategically placed in hidden areas around the ear and hairline. Excess skin is meticulously removed, taking extreme care to avoid any element of an unnatural or ‘overpulled’ appearance. The soft tissues underneath are repositioned and elevated using suture techniques to re-contour the jowls, jawline and neck areas. Platysmal bands are corrected and neck contour is restored.

This resuspension of the face and neck soft tissue restores volume to the upper parts of the face, recreating a youthful appearance. Finally, once the face is revolumized, excess skin is removed and the underlying soft tissues are suspended, a resurfacing procedure is used to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and areas of discoloration. This is commonly done with a medium depth medical grade peel or resurfacing laser such as a fractional erbium laser. If needed, a brow lift and eyelid surgery are commonly performed at the same time to correct sagging in the upper face.
