Unfortunately, facelifts got a bad reputation from the old style lifts that resulted in a tight or drawn look. Some people even thought that plastic surgery made the face look more plastic. Our doctors achieve a natural look as a result of a facelift – preserving the facial attributes of each patient. The emphasis on modern facelifting technique is supporting the deeper more fibrous, supportive tissues. Sometimes liposuction is used to help thin the thicker “turkey neck” and sometimes an endoscopic technique can be used to minimize the incisions and put the facial tissues back where they belong. Although the face will continue to age with time, most patients find that they have had a restored, more youthful appearance that helps them to age “more gracefully.”
The facelift procedure is a same-day surgery performed in one of our fully accredited outpatient surgery facilities such as WestHealth in Plymouth, MN, Maple Grove Hospital in Maple Grove, Minnesota, or CentraCare Surgery Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
