Facelift surgery is an excellent way to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. It can be performed in different ways depending on your specific concerns and goals. The anterior facelift is one technique that effectively rejuvenates the midface while offering several distinct advantages over a full facelift.
1. Performed Under Local Anesthesia
Full facelifts are commonly performed using general anesthesia. However, local anesthesia can be used for less extensive procedures. Our Ridgefield plastic surgery practice offers anterior facelifts under local anesthesia to provide a comfortable and convenient patient experience.
2. Requires Minimal Downtime
An anterior facelift requires less downtime than a full facelift and will not significantly disrupt your normal routine. That is because it is a minimally invasive procedure. It removes or adjusts less tissue than a full facelift and involves smaller incisions.
You may be a great candidate for an anterior facelift if you want to address concerns such as mild cheek sagging and developing nasolabial folds. Meanwhile, a standard facelift will better address moderate to advanced signs of aging.
3. More Affordable Than a Full Facelift
Anterior facelifts typically cost less than full facelifts. The reason being that the cost of a facelift depends on the type of anesthesia needed as well as the extent and complexity of the procedure. Anterior facelifts can also be performed in an office setting, which eliminates hospital fees.
