Facelifting Preserving Facial Expression

Before & After Pan Facial Rejuvenation by Dr Hodgkinson, Facelift, Endoscopic Browlift, Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery

The purpose of a facelift is not to tighten the face but to re-establish the youthful contours of the jawline, neck and cheekbones.? Dr Hodgkinson employs the more sophisticated techniques of facelifting which address all the aesthetic areas of the face, known as Pan Facial Rejuvenation.? The key to Pan Facial Rejuvenation is to give an overall more youthful appearance by creating a younger shaped face but without eliminating natural lines of expression such as ‘smile lines’ so that the face looks natural not only when the person is at rest but also when animated: speaking, laughing etc.?

Expert surgeons like Dr Hodgkinson can tighten the underlying muscles and tissues of the face and then redrape the skin to avoid a “tight” look.? Skin lifts or S-lifts pull these tissues into unnatural positions by the using the skin like “cling wrap”?to create tension and tightness in the face therefore compromising the natural contours and expression.?

Leaving a few lines actually enhances the outcome as the patient maintains their personality, so that when they?communicate their facial expressions remain familiar?and natural, whereas a patient who has no lines in their face might appear expressionless, blank or neutral.?
