Facelift is among the most highly requested facial plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Bryan Ambro of Annapolis Plastic Surgery offers several types of procedures, depending on your goals, to lift and tighten sagging skin from the cheeks, jawline and chin.
Patients with early signs of lower face aging can have a Mini Facelift performed under local anesthesia in our in office procedure suite, while patients requiring a formal facelift are done under mild general anesthesia in our private surgery center. A facelift is often done in conjunction with a neck lift, but may also be combined with brow lift, eyelid surgery and/or fat grafting for a balanced, complete facial rejuvenation.

What Happens During a Facelift?
Facelift surgery is performed by Dr. Ambro in our private surgery center at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Dr. Ambro will make an incision around the ear and below the chin. The skin is gently raised to reposition and tighten the underlying muscle and connective tissue to achieve a natural looking contour and lift.
If you have significant laxity in the lower facial and neck skin, there is no substitute for a facelift. However, if you have some minor sagging or early signs of aging, Dr. Ambro may be able to recommend an alternative treatment such as Laser Skin Resurfacing which can reduce wrinkles and tighten skin. Facial fillers and injectables such as Botox® are also alternatives for patients who aren’t ready for surgery.
