How is Facelift Surgery Performed?
Dr. Givens' custom approach to a facelift in Austin is designed to improve visible signs of aging and redefine the contours of the lower face and neckline to provide results that last for decades. The secret behind this innovative technique is the placement of well-hidden incisions within the hairline, natural creases of the ear, and beneath the chin to allow for imperceptible scar lines.
To achieve a naturally refreshed and youthful result, Dr. Givens utilizes a series of customized techniques that lift and restore volume to the face and neckline while removing skin laxity and excess fat. Facelift surgery can be performed simultaneously with a brow lift and/or eyelid lift to improve the upper face for the ultimate facial rejuvenation experience.
A “deep plane” facelift repositions a layer of connective tissue called the SMAS, or superficial muscular aponeurotic system, to lift and tighten the cheeks, jawline, and neck. This state-of-the-art technique gives a youthful, natural result rather than a “pulled” appearance. In addition, recovery time is quicker with less risk of complications.
