How Does a Lower Facelift Work?
Dr. Lanfranchi and his team practice the TLC Facelift, which combines the lower facelift with a neck lift to fully correct issues with loose neck skin. The TLC method ensures a faster recovery time and better results than most other methods. Dr. Lanfranchi often combines the lower facelift or TLC facelift with other procedures such as a brow lift, upper and lower eyelid lifts, or chin augmentation. These procedures together can achieve many of the results of a facelift with less recovery time.
How is a Lower Facelift Different from a Full Facelift?
A lower facelift addresses the lower part of the face, including the jawline, chin, and neck. A full facelift would address these issues and, at the same time, lift and remove loose skin in the upper part of the face and in the cheeks. However, a full facelift takes longer to recover from because it requires larger incisions and more manipulation.
On average, a lower facelift also costs less than a traditional facelift, so for many people whose primary concerns are around the lower face, the TLC facelift makes an ideal option to look up to ten years younger.
What Does a Lower Facelift Treat?
A lower facelift treats loose skin or sagging in the area of the neck, jaw, and chin to restore the contours and shape of the lower face. Results often exceed people’s expectations because they look so much younger and more refreshed than they looked before surgery.
