“As people are more active in their social lives and their work, they have less time available for facial operations. It is imperative that these procedures provide excellent rejuvenation while allowing a prompt recovery.”
-German Newall, MD, FACS, FICS
In a face lift procedure, Dr. Newall restores a younger, refreshed look to the face by tightening sagging skin and muscles. To meet his goal of providing “maximum rejuvenation with minimal downtime ,” Dr. Newall employs a unique technique that combines the best features of various procedures to create a natural-appearing facelift.
While traditional facelift procedures require a recovery period of 4-6 weeks, Dr. Newall uses advanced facelift techniques that produce comparable results while allowing patients to return to work and socializing in just 7-10 days. These are typical results but like any procedure healing time varies from patient to patient.
Called a deep plane facelift, the surgery requires minimal dissection of the skin while still allowing Dr. Newall to effectively tighten the deeper facial tissues and muscles to give the face a more uplifted and youthful appearance. Tension is put on the deeper facial planes to avoid excessive tension on the outer layers of the face, so that bruising is greatly minimized. The youthful results from a facelift typically last anywhere from 8-10 years.
Dr. Newall makes a series of incisions in the skin, and then separates this skin from the underlying muscle and fat. This allows him to tighten muscles and remove excess skin to ultimately give the face and neck a smoother, more uplifted appearance. The incisions are then closed with sutures, which usually may be removed in approximately five days, though this can vary depending on the individual. The scalp may require additional healing time.
