The G-Lift™ - A Mid-Face/Neck Lift


As time goes by, gravity and the repetitive contraction of the facial muscles cause changes to occur, giving the face a tired appearance. The skin becomes looser and wrinkles become more pronounced. The jowl area loses its sharp definition, and the tissues of the neck sag. The "G-Lift™" by John R. Gilmore, MD, may be the procedure you have been looking for.

A mid-face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is designed to reverse the effects of aging by repositioning the structure of the mid-face in their proper position and removing excess skin and fat. This is accomplished through inconspicuous incisions around the ears and under the chin. A mid-face lift can be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty, brow lift / forehead lift, or skin resurfacing.

At the time of your initial visit, we will gather a thorough medical history with particular emphasis on underlying medical problems or conditions that could affect the outcome of the procedure. A detailed physical examination and analysis of all your facial features will be performed. This will allow us to have a clear understanding of how to achieve the results you desire.

Scars from a face lift are usually very inconspicuous, but in some people who already have a tendency to form thick scars, they may be more obvious. It is very important to mention any history of poor quality scars or keloids at the time of the initial consultation.

When The "G-Lift™" is performed, you are in surgery approximately three to four hours, depending on the extent of your particular surgery. The "G-Lift™" is considered day surgery however it is imperative that you arrange for an escort to accompany you to the surgery site and escort you home. We recommend you have someone stay with you that 1st night as we need to see you in our office the next morning to remove any bandages that were applied after surgery.

In the first 48 hours after surgery, it is important for you to rest and do as little as possible in order to minimize the risk of bleeding and/or bruising. You should sleep with your head elevated on two pillows to keep the swelling down.

Although you will be up and about by the second day, you should plan to rest as much as possible and avoid strenuous exercises for the first two weeks after surgery. Sun exposure should be avoided for the first several months.
