Face Lift Surgery in Naples
Gardner Plastic Surgery meets with his patients prior to every procedure for a one-on-one consultation to determine their aesthetic goals at his Naples plastic surgery practice. Then, he develops a personalized treatment plan that will help them achieve their goals.
During the procedure, he begins surgery by carefully concealing incisions in front of and behind the ears. Next, he gently tightens loose skin and extracts excess tissue. In some instances, he may suggest patients combine their facelift surgery with liposuction to remove fat tissues along the jawline, and into the neck to help patients lose the "double chin" appearance.
He may also suggest patients undergo other facelift techniques, such as endoscopic facelift or mini face lift surgery. These techniques treat minor to moderate signs of aging and a mini facelift can offer patients the advantage of shortened recovery periods.
