Face Lift

Q: Can laser resurfacing and/or fat injections be done at the same time as a facelift?
A: Yes, Dr Struck loves the harmony and complete rejuvenation of a laser facelift, in which he combines laser resurfacing, a face lift and fat injections into a single procedure with a single recovery period.

Q: How long does a facelift last?
A: A facelift that places sutures in the SMAS (subcutaneous muscular aponeurotic system) will last eight to ten years.

Q: Am I too young for a facelift?
A: Everyone ages differently and this is very dependent on your inherited skeletal structure. The trend is towards less aggressive surgery at a younger
age to maintain a more natural appearance. I have a large number of patients who have facelifts in their mid 40’s for this reason.

Q: Why do you prefer endoscopic over traditional brow lifts?
A: Endoscopes reduce the size and number of incisions. This is important in brow lifts because it reduces the risk of hair loss and other complications of traditional brow lifts.

Q: When would you not do an endoscopic brow lift?
A: Patients who have a high hairline and long forehead are better served by a hairline brow lift so that the hairline can be lowered while also elevating the brows.

Q: Do you do facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid lifts all at the same time?
A: Yes. Doing all three at once creates better harmony between all areas of the face, because no one area appears much younger than others that have not received treatment.
