With his extensive knowledge of facelift procedures, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Franklyn Elliott successfully achieves the objectives of facial rejuvenation: safety, noticeable yet subtle enhancement, maintenance of a natural look, and a manageable recovery period. He utilizes traditional and innovative techniques including lessening facelift scars and combining surgery with non-invasive peels and laser resurfacing.
The short scar facelift technique is a signature of Dr. Elliott’s. The main difference between short scar and “traditional” facelifts is the significance of the remaining scar, which is lessened by the short scar technique. The types of scarring typically associated with traditional facelifts (in the face’s creases and hairline) is eliminated by the short scar facelift method, which lifts cheeks, reduces jowls, lessens eyelid prominence, and softens nasolabial folds. The short scar facelift rejuvenates the face by utilizing incisions in temporal hair, extending downward in front of the ear lobe.
In addition to creating a more natural look through lessening facelift scarring, Dr. Elliott sometimes recommends rejuvenation beyond tightening the skin and muscle. Receiving chemical peels, one of the least invasive ways to improve your skin’s condition, can decrease the appearance of scars, irregular skin pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. Another option for safe and effective overall skin tone improvement is laser skin resurfacing, which can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring.
