What does a traditional facelift entail?

Standard Facelift Procedure

In the past, the facelift procedure was performed by simply trimming excess skin. This technique proved to be ineffective, resulting in an unnatural "windswept" appearance. To correct the deficiencies of previous methods, modern facelifts are much more in-depth. Dr. Sherris:

Is a standard facelift the best solution for you?

Addressing the Jawline & Neck

The standard facelift is ideal for patients who hope to reverse the signs of aging on the lower third of the face. In doing so, the procedure can address several common complaints, including:

  • Eliminating jowls
  • Reducing the prominence of wrinkles
  • Improving the contour of the jawline and neck

During your consultation, Dr. Sherris will perform a detailed evaluation and discuss your goals to help you determine whether a standard or modified facelift can address your concerns.

There are also several popular facelift methods to choose from...

Types of Facelift Procedures

Dr. Sherris can perform several facelift methods to achieve your desired results.

Dr. Sherris offers several different kinds of facelift procedures: the mini facelift , standard facelift, deep plane facelift, and endoscopic mid facelift. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sherris will determine which type is most appropriate for your needs and goals. Facelifts can be combined with brow lifts or eyelid surgery for complete facial rejuvenation. We serve facelift patients from Rochester , Niagara Falls, and throughout the region who are seeking premier results and high-quality care.

Mini Face Lift

The mini face lift also known by other names such as the Q lift or J lift is appropriate for younger patients in their 30s and 40s who are beginning to exhibit the first telltale signs of aging and wish to correct mild drooping and sagging. The procedure is designed for patients who need to target only a few isolated areas, commonly around the cheeks or along the jawline, instead of patients who require complete facial and neck rejuvenation. The mini face lift is not as invasive as other face lift surgeries and takes less time to perform and recover from. Unlike other mini face lifts, Dr. Sherris will always tighten the underlying tissue layer beneath the skin which gives a more natural and longer lasting result. Other procedures, like liposuction of the neck or SMAS implants to the nasolabial folds can be added to the mini face lift to address more significant problems less invasively. Arrange a mini face lift consultation at our practice serving Buffalo , Niagara Falls, and Rochester.

Endoscopic Mid Face Lift

The mid face lift targets the middle region of the face, from the lower eyelids to the upper corners of the mouth and is an excellent solution for patients who are interested in looking younger but do not need to address laxity of the chin, jawline, and neck.

Dr. David Sherris performs the mid face lift endoscopically, meaning that he inserts tiny surgical instruments to reshape the facial muscles and tissues. A miniature camera is also inserted that transfers images to a video screen so that the procedure can be closely monitored by Dr. Sherris. The instruments and camera are inserted through small incisions that generally heal within a week after the procedure and leave virtually no scars. Endoscopic mid face lift surgery is advantageous because it enables Dr. Sherris to move the cheek fat pads to a more youthful, elevated position while improving creases around the lower eyelids and cheeks. The end results of the endoscopic mid face lift procedure include smooth, younger-looking skin and a refreshed, alert appearance.

For rejuvenation of the eyelid and cheek region with short recovery times and minimal scarring, contact our practice in Buffalo and schedule an endoscopic mid face lift consultation today. We welcome patients from Niagara Falls, Rochester, and throughout the region.

Deep Plane Face Lift

The deep plane face lift is intended for patients in their late 40s or older who are exhibiting severe facial sagging. Whereas traditional face lifts tighten the muscles and tissues that are closest to the skin, deep plane face lifts reposition the entire SMAS layer (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system) all the way to the nasolabial fold. The deep plane face lift is one of the few procedures that can significantly reduce the prominence of the nasolabial lines, the prominent, deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth.

Because the deep plane face lift is more intensive than other face lift procedures, it requires a longer healing period. To find out whether you are an appropriate candidate for the deep plane face lift, please contact Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery and arrange a consultation with Dr. David Sherris.
