A facelift is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce signs of aging on your face by tightening the facial skin and deeper tissues. At Miami Plastic Surgery®, Dr. Kelly specializes in the use of advanced surgical techniques to perform facelift procedures that leave your skin appearing healthier and more youthful. Ideal candidates for this procedure are those that have deep lines or wrinkles, loose or sagging skin, deep folds or creases around the nose and mouth, and those that have realistic expectations of what a facelift can deliver.
A neck lift procedure removes excess neck fat and skin while simultaneously removing or altering the neck muscles. This results in skin tightening around the neck, which creates the appearance of a more defined neck and jawline. A neck lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a chin implant, a facelift, fat grafting, or liposuction to further enhance the appearance of the neck. Dr. Kelly will discuss your desired goals and develop a treatment plan during your consultation.
Facial Fat Grafting
The loss of facial fat is one of the most important contributors to an aging face. Simply tightening the facial skin and underlying structures, as is done in a facelift, will not replace the volume that is lost over time. Through the technique of facial fat transfer, live fat cells can be transferred from unwanted areas to areas that are deficient. This procedure can usually be performed under local anesthesia or with some light sedation. Fat is meticulously removed and redistributed into the desired area.
