Look younger, feel younger, and enhance your self-confidence
Sun exposure, stresses of daily life, and aging can take their toll on our faces. Before you know it, deep creases start to appear near your mouth, your jawline slackens, and your neck develops fat deposits and loose folds. Dr. Kitto’s technique in facelift surgery can counteract these aging signs by tightening muscles around the face and trimming excess skin and fat, giving your face a more youthful look.
Our facelifts are perfect for men and women whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity. Most patients are in their forties to sixties, but people in their seventies or eighties can get a facelift as well.
I have no apparent scar under my eye because of Dr. Kitto’s expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Kitto for all your plastic surgery needs. I have recommended her to my dermatologist, my PCP, and the wellness nurses at Brandermill Woods.
A facelift commonly involves making small incisions inside the hairline, following the contour in front of the ear, and continuing under the earlobe to the backside of the ear to the lower scalp. In men with receding hairlines, the incisions can be modified to provide optimal results.
The procedure usually takes several hours to complete. Following surgery, a small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin behind your ear to drain any blood that might collect there.
In addition to a full facelift ,Dr. Kitto also performs a mini facelift surgery for patients who have minor sagging around the cheeks, jawline and neck.
Patients may experience some bruising and swelling for the first few days. The small drain (if used) is removed the day after surgery. Stitches are removed one week after surgery. Many patients typically return to work by the second week after surgery.
My confidence is back. Of all the things that Dr. Kitto fixed on me, I think repairing my self-image was the most important.
