Rhytidectomy (Facelift) in Jersey Shore, Monmouth County and West Long Branch NJ

Monmouth County Facelift – Different Types

There are different types of facelift procedures available to you depending on the problem spots patients are looking to address:

Short flap
This type of procedure is also referred to as a mini facelift and helps rejuvenate the lower face for individuals who have minimal sagging causing early jowls and excess lower face skin. The surgeon will make a small incision above the ears going down and use it to tighten and smoothen the facial contour. 

This is a cosmetic procedure that corrects sagging in the cheek area. Surgeons make an incision behind the hairline at the temples, and inside the mouth to reduce mid-face sagging and creasing. This treatment is ideal for individuals who have moderate sagging in the jowls and neck. 

Deep plane
This is the facelift of choice improving heavy sagging in the cheeks and neck. This treatment will enhance skin laxity while providing natural, long-lasting results. Dr. Vemula finds that this technique yields the best results for many of his patients. 

Neck lift
In some cases, the surgeon may combine a neck lift with a facelift to get rid of excess chin fat and noticeable bands within the neck.
