You are probably already familiar with the facelift and its contiguous procedures like the neck lift and endoscopic brow lift, but what about adjunctive surgical procedures?
Adjunctive procedures are additional facial feature rejuvenation procedures that enhance the transformation of the face for an overall youthful appearance. They address the details, targeting specific facial regions like the lip, chin, nose, eyes or ears.
Types of Adjunctive Rejuvenation Procedures
At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, we typically perform the following adjunctive rejuvenation procedures combined with other facelifting treatments. However, they can also be done as stand-alone surgeries.
The Lip Lift: The upper lip lift procedure corrects signs of aging by shortening the distance from the nose to the pink border of your lip, filling the red lip substance to revive volume and lifting droopy mouth corners. The result is a more youthful lip shape and fullness to complement the surrounding facelift procedure.
The Chin Lift: The chin lift corrects a droopy chin via suture suspension through an incision inside the mouth. It compliments facelifts that focus on tightening the jowls and jawline.
Buccal Fat Pad Resection: The buccal fat pad resection procedure is a minimally-invasive operation that removes the chubby cheek look by removing the buccal fat pads through an incision inside the mouth.
Submental Lipodystrophy-Double Chin (Chin Liposuction): The chin liposuction procedure eliminates submental fat deposits under the chin, which causes a double chin. In addition, it tightens the skin under the chin to better delineate the jawline definition.
Earlobe Correction: Earlobe correction or reduction reshapes the earlobes, which get bigger and longer with age. It also shrinks earring holes if years of wearing heavy earrings have stretched them out. Dr. Anastasatos often recommends this procedure be combined with a facelift so that the earlobes match the look of a more youthful face.
Endoscopic Nose lift: The nose lift can be done together with an endoscopic brow lift. It corrects the nose elongation (which happens with aging) by repositioning the nose to a higher, more youthful position.
Should You Get Adjunctive Rejuvenation Procedures with a Facelift?
The face is the most influential part of the body in human interaction because it communicates our thoughts and feelings through expressions. When the face ages, it does so all around. So, several features may require adjustment to achieve a balanced, youthful appearance.
Adjunctive procedures ensure that the face people see looks natural. Attaining that overall rejuvenated face can be life-changing.
