What Results to Expect from a Lower Facelift
At the Lanfranchi Center, lower facelifts are performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation to help decrease anxiety. The superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) is the layer of the face most important to structural support. Dr. Lanfranchi corrects the position of the SMAS layer and platysma muscle to improve the contour of the jawline and lower face.
You should see a dramatic improvement in sagging jowls, drooping lower facial skin, and natural profile. For men, you should expect a more masculine jawline. The TLC Lift™ can be combined with other procedures to improve your results.
How Long Does a Lower Facelift Last?
Lower facelifts can last 10-15 years, depending on age, lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure, and genetics. Lower facelifts cannot stop future aging, but younger patients enjoy longer-lasting results. Botox, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, or chemical peels can be added to improve and help maintain the results of your lower facelift.
