When performed by a qualified and board certified plastic surgeon, facelift can help turn back the clock and make you feel like a younger and more confident version of yourself. Considered the gold standard in facial rejuvenation, facelift offers the most comprehensive results of all the facial plastic surgery procedures because it corrects several facial aging signs in the middle and lower facial areas. Depending on your needs, facelift can correct sagging skin on the cheeks, jowls and neck.
Through his many years of training and experience, Dr. Mark A. Foglietti has refined his surgical technique. This has led him to develop the Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift Technique. This innovative technique allows Dr. Foglietti and Dr. Foglietti Fostyk to refine the deep tissues of the face in a precise and gentle manner for a noticeable and long-lasting result.
Am I a Candidate for the Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift?
You may be a suitable candidate for the Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift if you are bothered by any of the following:
- Sunken or hollow cheeks
- Sagging, hanging skin on the mid-face
- Jowls or slackened jaw line
One of our surgeons will meet with you individually to discuss your aesthetic needs and goals for treatment. Facelift can be combined with other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to achieve more comprehensive results. For instance, it can be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery and/or brow lift to address aging signs on the upper facial area in addition to the middle and lower facial regions. Botox or dermal fillers may also be recommended to improve or maintain results with facelift. Our team will help you navigate all of your options so you can make the best decisions in regard to your facial rejuvenation goals.
Facelift is performed with anesthesia. The Foglietti Natural Vector Facelift Technique is performed using incisions created along the inside of the hairline that extend to the front of the ear, under the earlobe to the back of the ear and ending behind the scalp. The skin is lifted to access the underlying tissues of the face, known as the SMAS layer. The tissues are sculpted to create a smoother and youthful appearance. After excess tissues and skin are excised, the remaining tissues and skin are tightened in multiple natural vectors (directions). The surgeons are meticulous in their approach to avoid an overly pulled or tight appearance that is often a result of a poorly performed facelift. The neck area will be sculpted as needed to create a better defined jawline. Once all of the agreed-upon modifications have been made, the incisions will be closed using sutures.
An expertly performed facelift can last for many years. To maintain your rejuvenated appearance, it is recommended that you practice healthy lifestyle habits. This includes eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, wearing sunscreen and not smoking. Our team can provide you with additional tips to prolong your results.
