Facelift in Newtown Square, PA

Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs facelifts for patients in Newtown Square, PA.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure performed to reduce or eliminate the appearance of age-related wrinkles and sagging of the face. The skin is literally lifted above the face so that the tissues and skin underneath can be tightened and repositioned.

How Is a Facelift Performed?

A facelift is performed by administering either a sedative or local anesthesia to numb the skin; general anesthesia may also be used. Dr. Glat then makes an incision in the temple area, curving around to the front of the ear. The skin is raised while the tissue and muscle underneath the skin are tightened. During this process, Dr. Glat may also remove excess fat and skin. Finally, the skin is placed back over the face and the incision is sutured.
