Facelift in Kingston, Ontario

There are several types of facelifts, which differ in terms of the extent of the procedure, the incision placement, and the areas of the face that are targeted. Here are some of the most common types:

  1. Traditional facelift: This is the most extensive type of facelift and involves making incisions in the hairline, around the ears, and sometimes under the chin. The underlying facial muscles are then tightened, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is lifted and repositioned.

  2. Mini facelift: This is a less invasive version of the traditional facelift that involves shorter incisions and less tissue manipulation. It's often used to address sagging skin in the lower face and jowls.

  3. Mid facelift: This type of facelift focuses on the middle area of the face, including the cheeks and under the eyes. Incisions are made in the hairline and around the ear, and the facial muscles are lifted and repositioned.

  4. Neck lift: This procedure targets the neck and jawline and is often combined with a facelift. Incisions are made under the chin or behind the ears, and the muscles and skin of the neck are tightened.

  5. Thread lift: This is a non-surgical facelift that uses sutures to lift and tighten the skin. The sutures are inserted under the skin and pulled tight, creating a lifting effect.

It's important to note that the best type of facelift for you will depend on your individual needs and goals, and these goals will be discussed with our plastic surgeon Dr Kim Meathrel at your consultation.
