Facial sculpting and face lift surgery are different procedures, meant for different purposes. Facial sculpting involves reshaping specific areas of the face for a more defined contour. For instance, a rhinoplasty procedure falls under this category because the goal is to reshape the nasal structure. While facial sculpting can have rejuvenating benefits, the goal is to contour an area.
A face lift at our Maryland area practice is designed to refresh and rejuvenate the face. A face lift can benefit your eyes, cheeks, jowls, and, if desired, the neck. During this procedure, I remove excess skin and tissue to help reveal tighter and smoother skin. Reshaping is not the primary goal for this procedure, in contrast to facial sculpting.
For those who are interested in both facial sculpting and a face lift, certain procedures can be combined for beautiful results. For instance, facial implants can be combined with a face lift to help tighten skin while augmenting specific areas of the face such as the cheeks and chin.
