[liv]® Lift Face:

Mini Facelift: also termed “the weekend lift” or the ”quick lift,” is a surgery that addresses the wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower third of your face, which is why it is also known as the lower facelift involves removing skin and minimal tightening if any of the internal lining called the SMAS.

The mini facelift concentrates on the jowls, chin, cheeks, and marionette lines. This facelift surgery is short, and the recovery period for this procedure is fast. In addition, there is minimal swelling and very few side effects with this procedure. The mini facelift (or the mini lower facelift) is popular among men and women with busy schedules and active lifestyles. The mini facelift does not stop the aging process, of course, but with its incredible results, you can look ten years younger than you would without the treatment

Deep Plane Facelift: Rejuvenates the face by addressing sagging skin, jowls, and wrinkles. It involves lifting and repositioning the deeper layers of the face, including the muscles and fat pads. The deep plane facelift technique requires specialized training and expertise and is typically performed by a plastic surgeon like Dr. Ress. It is considered a more extensive procedure than other facelift types and may require a more extended recovery period. Dr. Ress addresses the underlying causes of facial aging by lifting and repositioning these deeper layers.

A deep plane facelift is considered a better option for some patients. It provides a more natural-looking and longer-lasting outcome compared to traditional facelift techniques. In addition, since the deeper layers are addressed, the skin is not pulled as tightly as in traditional facelifts. We want to avoid the overly tight or "pulled" appearance. The deeper plane technique allows for a more subtle and natural-looking result. However, the deep plane facelift technique is more complex and extensive, and not all patients may be good candidates for it.

Brow lift: A repositions the eyebrow to a youthful position,  as well as  addresses the lines, creases localized to the forehead. Appearance improvements include,  a the appearance of fresher, wide eyes, as well as the correction of heavy low brows.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the best age to have a facelift?

In most cases, a facelift works best for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s when signs of aging begin to become prevalent. Deep lines, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are the result of the aging process and can be best corrected through surgical techniques rather than non-surgical ones candidates for it.

How long do facelifts last?

A face-lift can give your face and neck a more youthful look. With age and the natural nature of skin it is estimated that a face-lift can be expected to last 10 years.

How much younger will I look after facelift?

In a survey of facelift patients: 87% reported positive reactions from others and a boost in self-esteem. 97% thought they looked younger after surgery by an average of twelve years. 95% were pleased with their results and felt that the surgery met their expectations.

Do facelifts ever look natural?

Not only is a natural-looking facelift possible, but it's also what you should expect from an experienced and professional surgery team. 
In the weeks after surgery, you will have bruising and swelling, though this will only last a relatively short time. You should go back to looking like normal after 2-4 weeks. To get the full impression of what the “new you” will look like after your facelift, you may need to wait 2-3 months to get the full effect
