‘Four-Dimensional’ Facelift Restores a Naturally Youthful Appearance

Posted on July 16th, 2012 by Dr. Albert Carlotti

Facial Cosmetic SurgeryGiven the tremendous power that our faces have in defining our identities, it’s not surprising that so many women and men today choose to undergo facial cosmetic surgery. Our faces are the image that we present to the rest of the world every day, so naturally the changes that occur to it over time can be distressing. Lines and wrinkles appear, the skin and underlying tissues sag and damage accumulates from exposure to the sun and environmental pollutants.

The good news is that expertly performed cosmetic surgery can refresh the appearance of your face and perhaps even improve on small imperfections that you thought you’d have to live with your entire life. With the newest techniques and tools, skilled cosmetic surgeons can now get much more natural-looking results than ever before.

Cosmetic surgery has come a long way since the first facelift, or rhytidectomy, was performed more than 100 years ago. Continual refinements to facial cosmetic surgery techniques have overcome many of the limitations of earlier procedures, and people undergoing facial surgery today don’t have to settle for the unnatural “stretched” or “pulled” look that often resulted from facelifts in the past.

The major innovation in facial cosmetic surgery to come along with the new millennium is the four dimensional facelift. Whereas a traditional facelift is literally just skin deep, the 4-D facelift repositions and recontours the muscle, fat and bone underlying the facial skin. The results are better in every way – a more youthful appearance is restored without sacrificing a natural look or creating other telltale imperfections or asymmetries.

A 4-D facelift is best described as a set of procedures that, when performed together, create a total effect that’s far superior to traditional facelifts. Depending on each patient’s individual need, the 4-D facelift can include:

  • endoscopic browlift
  • multivector/mulitlayer facelift
  • eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty
  • neck lift (submentoplasty)
  • cheek implants
  • laser skin resurfacing

Of course, as with any procedure, the quality of the results of a 4-D facelift depends heavily on the skill and experience of the surgeon performing it. The Carlotti Center for Cosmetic Surgery has become the premier Scottsdale 4-D facelift provider because of the expertise of Dr. Albert Carlotti and Dr. Michelle Carlotti.  This unique husband and wife team bring skills honed during more than 5,000 facial cosmetic procedures.
