Women and men seek this procedure when they want to improve the appearance
of prominent cheek jowls, as well as lax skin and lines of
the neck. Face lifts and/or neck lifts effectively re-suspend tissues,
remove excess skin and tighten neck muscles, yielding a more youthful
contour and better definition of the face and neck.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Mallen evaluates the
shape of the patientís face, focusing on facial lines, underlying tissues
and sagging or aging skin of the cheek and neck area. Text book photos of
face and neck lift procedures are reviewed in detail. Based on his
evaluation of the patient, Dr. Mallen creates an individualized plan
incorporating the patientís concerns that with treatment will yield a
natural looking, rested and younger appearance.
