When you’re looking to regain the smooth, taut skin your face had decades ago, a face lift is an excellent option. In Tampa, plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald has performed this procedure on patients at Bayshore Plastic Surgery since 1998 with stunning, natural-looking results. He may be able to reverse your own aging with a face lift too, by smoothing out wrinkles, and eliminating jowls and neckbands. And, Dr. Greenwald’s extensive experience with face lift surgery ensures that your procedure will leave you looking refreshed and well-rested without looking over-stretched and artificially tight.

Facelift procedures work by removing excess fat, tightening the underlying tissues, and smoothing the loose skin on the face and neck. The results include:

  • Fewer deep lines running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth
  • Fewer deep lines running from the corner of your mouth to the lateral chin area
  • Increased definition of the jaw line
  • A reduction in deep wrinkles in the cheek and sagging skin near the cheekbones
  • Less loose skin, wrinkles, or excess fatty tissue on the neck

What happens during a facelift procedure?

At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, a face lift begins by creating incisions around the ear and into the hairline. The skin is then redistributed into a more youthful position, revealing a cleaner jaw line, softening wrinkles, and eliminating neckbands. The profile of the cheekbones can be highlighted specifically in another plastic surgery procedure known as a mid-face lift. During this procedure an incision is made through a lower eyelid and the cheek pads are elevated. A mini face lift requires just a few small incisions behind the ears or hairline and the skin is tightened.

Surgical Concerns

Some risks related to face lifts include bleeding and infection. Patients, especially smokers, may also develop wound healing issues. More invasive procedures, such as deep face lifts, come with a higher risk of facial muscle weakness, and despite claims that they’ll yield improved results over time, there’s no evidence of this.
