For a fresh, youthful look, a custom facelift in Raleigh & Cary, NC with Dr. Anu Antony can address the damage caused by time, aging skin, environmental factors, and sun exposure. Her extensive range of precision techniques distinguishes Dr. Anu Antony’s approach to every facelift procedure. Everyone is unique, and your personalized facelift solution must be designed to achieve the most natural, long-lasting result.

Types of Facelift Techniques

Traditional Facelift

Often called a “full facelift,” this technique addresses moderate to advanced aging changes in the mid-face, jowls, and neck. The incision typically begins in the hairline at the temples, continues around the ear, and ends in the lower scalp. Dr. Antony skillfully repositions deeper tissues and removes excess skin to restore a youthful contour.


Ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, the mini-facelift requires smaller incisions and offers a quicker recovery time. This technique primarily targets the lower face, including the jawline and the neck, and is perfect for those seeking less invasive rejuvenation.

Mid-Face Lift

Specifically targeting the cheek and mid-face area, this lift subtly elevates sagging cheeks, reduces etched-in smile lines, and enhances the overall youthfulness of the mid-face. The incisions are placed around the hairline and ear or lower eyelash line to avoid leaving visible surgical scars.

SMAS Lift (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System)

This advanced technique goes deeper than the traditional facelift, repositioning and tightening the underlying layer of muscles and the skin. It is particularly effective for creating a more dramatic and durable improvement.

Neck Lift

Often performed with a facelift for comprehensive results, a neck lift removes excess skin and fat from the neck and tightens the underlying muscles. This procedure smooths sagging jowls and restores a youthful, defined jawline.

Is it Time to Consider a Facelift?

A facelift, performed by Dr. Anu Antony, is a transformative procedure designed to significantly rejuvenate facial features by addressing the most visible signs of aging. Here’s what a facelift can do for you:

Reduce Visible Signs of Aging

A facelift can dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin in the mid to lower face and neck. The procedure redefines the contours of your face and neck by tightening loose skin and restoring the underlying tissues to a youthful position.

Restore Firmness

Over time, facial skin loses its firm, youthful elasticity. A facelift restores this lost firmness by tightening the facial muscles and removing excess skin, giving you a youthful, refreshed appearance that looks like you.

Enhance Facial Contours

One key benefit of a facelift is the enhancement of the jawline and neck contours. This procedure removes jowls and double chins, restoring a refined, elegant facial structure.

Enhance Self-Confidence

Beyond the visible improvements, a facelift enhances self-esteem and confidence. Many patients report feeling more vibrant and rejuvenated after the procedure.

Dr. Anu Antony understands that a facelift is about more than looking younger—it’s about refreshing your appearance with techniques that lead to a refined and elegant look. Her tailored approach ensures that the results are subtle yet effective, matching your personal aesthetic goals and enhancing your natural beauty without looking to have been created with surgery.
