In men, the incision is placed in front of the ear to avoid bringing the hair bearing cheek skin onto the ear. Insurance rarely covers the cost of elective cosmetic surgery and procedures. The benefits of face lift surgery are numerous, and include improved self-confidence, greater self-esteem, a more youthful, healthier appearance, and a more outgoing, social demeanor around friends, family, and strangers. Overall size, tip, bridge and nostrils are addressed through incisions hidden inside the nose or made across tissue that separates the nostrils. We offer a wide range of facial cosmetic surgery procedures at our practice; if you have considered plastic surgery and would like to make a positive, long-term change in your life, a mini face lift may be for you. The process involves lifting not only the upper layer of skin but also the underlying connective tissue and facial muscles.

Our team takes every precaution to help minimize or eliminate these risks, but we advise all of our patients that risks, including excessive bleeding, hematomas, infection, conspicuous scarring, sensory and motor nerve injury, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and swelling, are a possibility and should be factored into any decision regarding treatment. Upper and lower eyelids may be addressed with minimal incisions in the crease of the upper lid, below the eyelashes or hidden inside the lower eyelid. Though risks can be greatly mitigated with experience, knowledge, and the highest standard of patient care, they do include excessive bleeding, swelling, adverse reaction to anesthesia, conspicuous scarring, skin or hair loss, skin discoloration, infection, permanent or temporary numbness, permanent or temporary abnormal sensations (paresthesias), permanent or temporary facial paralysis, and the possibility for the development of a hematoma (or bleeding beneath the skin).
