at Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas. Saggy, loose, redundant face and/or neck skin that accompanies aging can be significantly improved or corrected. As we age, our face, neck and brows begin to stretch, droop, hang and sag. Droopy brows create and/or potentiate droopy upper eyelids, and can reduce or block your upper visual field. Mid face age-related changes are often associated with a progressively deepening cheek/lip interface groove, called the meilo-labial fold or groove. Saggy, loose “jowls” (of the lower cheek / chin interface) accompany lower face age-related changes. Likewise, similar changes can be seen in the neck area. Individual onset, progression and degree of these changes varies with location, face/neck anatomy, lifestyle, heredity and instrinsic aging.

Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute offers a variety of solutions. In general, options for saggy, loose face and/or neck skin include:

  • Non-invasive (Face-/Neck-/Browlifting) alternatives, which include:
  • Surgery or Lifts (Facelifts, Necklifts, Browlifts, and their combinations)

Liquid facelifts (face lifts) involve the use of injectable deep fillers, such as Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Lyft / Defyne, Sculptra and/or Radiesse alone or in combination with more superficial fillers, like Restylane / Refyne or Juvederm / Vollure to achieve near face lift like results without surgery. Adjunct Botox or Dysport can augment results, especially in the upper face. Several treatments may be required for optimal improvement, but results can last years.

“Liquid facelifts” can be performed alone or in combination with skin tightening / non-surgical lifting, such as SkinTyte, Exilis or Ultherapy. Likewise, skin tightening or non-surgical lifting procedures may be performed alone if desired. Skin tightening techniques heat deeper skin and/or other tissues, causing collagen contraction and new collagen formation, thereby tightening or lifting over several months or more. SkinTyte uses infrared light energy; while Exilis uses unipolar radiofrequency to heat deeper skin and subcutaneous (below the skin) tissues. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound. Several or more treatments every 2-4 weeks are required for Skintyte or Exilis, however, only 1-2 treatments are usually required for Ultherapy. Improvement is modest, temporary and requires maintenance. (Skin tightening / non-surgical lifting alone cannot replicate surgical face lift like results.) Yet, both are non-invasive, very safe, painless and without downtime.

In contrast, Surgical Facelifts (and other variations) fall into 3 categories:
1. Extensive incision Facelifts (Full facelifts / face lifts and aliases),
2. Minimal incision Facelifts (Mini-facelifts / face lifts and aliases) and
3. Other lifting procedures (i.e. Forehead-lifts, Browlifts and Necklifts)

Extensive incision facelifts involve extensive skin incisions and flaps and thus, more extensive wounding, recovery and risk potential; and are usually performed in a surgery center or hospital.

Whereas minimal incision facelifts involve shorter (or less extensive) skin incisions / flaps and are associated with less wounding, healing and risks. Mini-facelifts are often performed in an outpatient office-based surgery facility. Mini-facelifts are excellent as a second facelift or touch-up procedure. Most of the mini-lifts Dr. Strimling performs are secondary/touch-up procedures. Lifestyle Lift, QuickLift, S-Lift, Weekend Facelift, MACS Lift are all mini-facelift variations.

All modern / effective facelifts, mini-facelifts and variants includevbelow / under the skin sutures to assist in “lifting” and “anchoring”vdeeper subcutaneous tissues (SMAS) where aesthetically desired.vExcess skin is meticulously trimmed to match the opposing incision line; then, the skin flap is re-attached with sutures.

Dermatologic Cosmetic Surgeons, who are well practiced in facial surgery, via complicated skin cancer removal & reconstructions, are leading innovators in many of the newer mini-facelift techniques. With nearly 20 years experience as a Dermatologic Cosmetic Surgeon and extensive practice in complicated facial skin cancer reconstructions, Dr. Strimling (of Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas) often performs mini-facelifts and other lifts on former facial skin cancer patients who have discovered his technical expertise via personal experience with facial skin cancer. Most recently, one such former skin cancer patient flew in from San Francisco just to have her mIni-facelift performed, and was so happy with her new result, she has provided a testimonial.

Forehead-lifts, including endoscopic lifts are rarely performed today, as the most significant benefit, reduced forehead and glabella wrinkling are easily duplicated non-invasively with Botox or Dysport, which can also be easily fine-tuned periodically.

Browlifts (Brow lifts) elevate brows, and to a lesser extent upper eyelids, but do not reduce forehead wrinkling, as Botox or Dysport does. Browlifts have more limited use, since visible, albeit subtle scarring will result. Botox or Dysport can be used to temporarily elevate the lateral brows. On occasion, Dr. Strimling performs direct, midline or temporal browlifts in appropriate surgical candidates with more extensive brow droop to improve cosmesis and/or upper field of vision.

Necklifts (Neck lifts) are usually performed in conjunction with full facelifts. On occasion, Dr. Strimling will perform an isolated necklift via a limited, hidden incisions behind the ear in the posterior ear crease.
