A facelift is one of the most popular plastic surgeries from year to year in the United States. However, while a facelift may be well known, there are many variations of this traditional surgery that patients may not consider until consulting with a Seattle facial plastic surgeon. One of these procedures is an extended facelift. 

Like the name implies, an extended facelift is a larger procedure. It is typically performed on patients who need extensive correction of the lower face, jowls, and neck. It almost always corrects the muscles as well, tightening the internal structures for a more youthful look. A traditional facelift may or may not include this component.

An extended facelift does usually require a larger incision, however, in patients who require the procedure, this is usually not seen as a drawback. Dr. Santos also commonly performs all types of facelifts on a diverse set of patients. Therefore, he knows how to minimize the incision and promote a well hidden final look. 

Extended facelift patients commonly have more advanced signs of aging than mini facelift or traditional facelift patients. Dr. Santos evaluates every individual patient to determine which facelift surgery will offer the greatest results that fits their goals and expectations.
