A facelift procedure takes approximately two to three hours, and is performed under “twilight” anesthesia. The procedure involves making an incision behind the hairline, which extends in natural skin creases down and around the ear and then back into the hair-bearing scalp behind the ear. A tiny incision is also made under the chin for fat removal and muscle tightening of the neck region. Once the incisions are in place, the skin is lifted and liposculpturing techniques are used to remove excess fatty deposits. At Cocoona we take extra care to ensure that the skin is made taut, but not over tightened. That’s precisely why our procedure not only corrects creases, lines, folds and restores the contours of your face to give you a more prominent jaw line, cheekbones, and neck, but do it all in a manner that looks natural.
