Dr. Fodor offers Face Lift Surgery to residents in Aspen, Snowmass and surrounding areas of Colorado.
Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process can make skin loosen and sag, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. The muscles on the neck can slacken, too, causing you to look years older than you are. Face lift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face and neck, creating a more youthful appearance. Fresh, taut skin can make you look decades younger.
During face lift surgery, incisions are first made along the hairline, by the ear, and around the earlobe. Through these incisions, the skin is separated from the underlying structures. Next, in order to obtain a longer lasting and more natural appearance, Dr. Fodor works on the foundation of the face under the skin. The underlying soft tissues are suspended, repositioned and restructured. The remaining skin is smoothed and tightened by removing the excess skin.
The procedure may take three to five hours and side effects of face lift surgery include temporary swelling, numbness, bruising, and tightness. However, most patients report very little pain and only minor discomfort. In conjunction with face lift, the cheeks, chin and lips can be selectively augmented according to each patient's individual needs. The result is a rejuvenated appearance.
Many of our patients request a full face lift, but based on patient evaluation, Dr. Fodor often recommends less invasive approaches, which still result in significant rejuvenation and an improved facial appearance. Dr. Fodor's initial evaluation and analysis of your face will help him determine whether you would benefit from what he calls a "Near Face Lift" surgical concept Dr. Fodor developed. A “Near Face Lift” is a combination of any number of procedures such as eyelid rejuvenation, cheek and chin implants, liposuction of the neck, buccal fat pad reduction, nasal reshaping but not a face lift per se, performed under the same surgical session. Properly chosen and executed, the collective result in improvement in the facial aesthetics is far in excess of the sum of its parts. A near face lift can delay the need for a full face lift for as long as a decade.
