Have you ever wished that the face you see in the mirror reflected your inner youth and vibrancy? Through facelift surgery with Dr. Joseph A. Rabson at our practice in Plymouth Meeting, it can. Using advanced artist skills and safe, effective surgical techniques, Dr. Rabson achieves beautiful, natural-looking results with facelift surgery for men and women in Montgomery County and throughout Pennsylvania. For those who would like a complete makeover, Dr. Rabson also offers eyelid surgery, brow lift, and neck lift procedures.
Although a facelift can conceivably be performed on individuals of all ages, men and women in their 40s to 60s with well-defined bone structure and skin that still retains some elasticity make ideal candidates for the procedure. However, many patients who are over 60 attain wonderful results with facelift surgery. Overall physical and emotional health is an important factor when determining whether facelift surgery is suitable for an individual.
Because everyone is unique, Dr. Rabson makes facelift recommendations on a case-by-case basis. During a private consultation, he carefully examines the patient's underlying bone structure and inquires about his or her medical history. It is important that patients openly discuss any preexisting medical conditions along with their goals for the surgery.
The exact details of the surgical process depend on each patient's physical characteristics and aesthetic goals. Dr. Rabson customizes the facelift procedure to achieve the best possible outcome for each individual. During a traditional facelift, Dr. Rabson makes an incision that begins near the temples, continues behind the earlobe, and ends at the lower scalp. This incision is discretely placed behind the hairline so that any scars are hidden. Next, he separates the skin from the fat and muscle so that he may tighten the underlying facial structures. By removing excess skin and suturing the remaining skin into place, Dr. Rabson creates a smooth, natural-looking appearance.
Dr. Rabson uses newer procedures to lift up the sagging jowls and midface, using smaller incisions whenever possible. Neck lifts usually involve some tightening of the muscles underneath, and liposuction for excessive fullness under the chin.
These procedures can often be performed as same-day surgery in our beautiful, fully accredited surgicenter. Out-of-town patients can be admitted overnight or stay at one of our local hotels.
