What are the Facial Lifts
of Cosmetic Surgery?
By David Metzner
The various lifts of the
face can restore the effects of aging.
A facelift can improve many
areas: sagging, loose tissues of the mid-face, deep folds of
loose skin at the sides of the nose and mouth, jowls or loss of
definition of the jaw line, and excess fat or loose skin causing
loss of definition and “hanging” of the tissues in the neck
area. A facelift is a great cosmetic and plastic surgery
procedure. Dr. David Metzner performs the facelift procedure in
his New location in Manchester, Vermont. Look at his facelift

It is crucial for you to
discuss your areas of concern during a consultation and the
physician can demonstrate the degree of correction you may be
able to achieve in each area.
A facelift does not stop the
clock. It simply "resets" it. How long a facelift lasts depends
on many factors including the inherent characteristics of your
tissues. Also, people tend to age in “spurts” (look at
Presidents before and after serving). If you are in, or
entering, an aging cycle, your facelift will not last as long as
someone who is not in such a cycle.
You'll notice some loosening
within a few months following a facelift, but you may never
regain the degree of your original aged appearance. On average,
patients may request a less extensive tightening procedure in
7-10 years to maintain the best possible appearance.
A forehead lift corrects the
sagging or low position of the eyebrows. It also softens creases
across the forehead and frown lines between the brows. The
result is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Tiny
incisions are hidden within the hair, and no scalp or hair is
Eyelid surgery removes the
excess fat and wrinkled, droopy skin of the upper eyelids. It
also eliminates bags under the eyes and tightens the lower
eyelid skin. Eyelid surgery helps to eliminate the appearance of
being constantly tired, resulting in a more youthful and rested
appearance. Eyelid Surgery is expertley performed by Dr. David
Metzner in Manchester, Vermont.
The Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)
is a family of treatments that can address problems with the
fat, muscle and skin of your neck and jaw line. Is your neck
overly full and out of proportion with your face? Have you lost
weight only to find sagging skin in your neck? A Neck Lift can
help correct a fleshy neck, "jowls", plastysma or neck
"banding", or that "turkey waddle".
If, however, the skin of the
neck is loose, hanging, or crepey, even if there is excess fat,
liposuction alone will not produce the desired result. A full
Neck Lift may be used to address problems with slack skin, slack
neck muscles, or both. Most patients over 40 will require some
surgical skin tightening. Each person will have very different
requirements for improving the appearance of their neck.
