Facelift and Upper Eyelid Surgery Work Well in Combination*

Procedure Details

During facelift surgery, sagging skin is repositioned, excess fat, tissue and skin are removed, and the underlying musculature is re-suspended with permanent sutures to make the lift last longer. Dr. Kridel’s and Dr. Sturm’s goal is to have an outcome that appears natural, not a tight “wind-tunnel” look. Therefore the skin is re-draped in an upward and slightly posterior direction to give a natural look to the face. Extra time is also taken to hide incisions around the ear and back into the hair, while preserving the hair in front and behind the ears. Improvements from an MVP facelift surgery last about 10 to 15 years. A facelift does not permanently prevent aging, but it does shift back the hands of time. The person who has a face lift never looks as old as they would have if they had not had the operation at all.

Multiple Procedures Work Well


Often patients have more than one facial plastic surgery, such as this 59 year-old who had a facelift and upper eyelid surgery performed at the same time. When a patient is concerned about looking tired, they often have lax skin in the neck and jaw area as well as their eyelids. With the special MVP Lift technique for facelifts, Dr. Kridel achieves natural results with hidden incisions. As you can see from this man's fantastic results, these procedures, individually and in combination, can remove years from an aging appearance.
