Aging completely changes the shape of the face over time. Naturally youthful volume is lost in the cheek area, while gravity begins to take hold in the lower face and neck; fat deposits in the neck contribute to sagging.

A good surgical correction–often combined with cosmetic injectables and non-surgical firming techniques–will restore tissues to their proper location, tighten the tissues under the skin, and define the jaw line, achieve a more contoured neck, and give back lost volume in certain areas of the face.

At deme, we deploy cutting edge techniques and approaches. We do not, however, perform faddish procedures or those with misleading marketing names such as the “lunch lift” or the “style lift.” These can cause needless scarring, produce less long-lasting results, and create a taut, stretched look that actually ages the face, rather than restoring youthful volume and contouring.

A deme facelift and necklift not only tightens or eliminates loose skin, but also strengthens the more robust tissues under the skin–all  using smaller incisions, and thus, negligible scarring.

After your consultation, our Plastic Surgery Department head, noted plastic surgeon Kevin Cross, MD, may also choose, along with you, to recreate youthful volume and contouring by a variety of techniques.

These may range from facial fillers to fat transfer, a procedure which removes and medically filters excess fat from the belly and hip area and replaces it into strategic areas of the face to produce an organically full, healthy look–and one that has the possibility of lasting indefinitely. Click on our menu for more in-depth information on facial fillers and fat transfer.

Facelift and neck lift procedures can be performed under either a “twilight” anesthesia, during which the patient is semi-conscious but retains no memory of the procedure, or a deeper anesthesia. for example, deme anesthesiologists now often use a technique called “TIVA,” a very effective anesthetic that prevents any of the nausea or vomiting typically expected when wakening from anesthesia.  The recovery time for a face or neck procedure is variable depending on each patient’s physiological response, but a deme procedure typically involves very little pain, and most patients are back to normal activities within one to two weeks.

Both absorbable and removable sutures are used, and the removable sutures are taken out in the office within one week of the procedure and patients can typically resume strenuous physical activities within two weeks of the procedure.
