“My goal with facial rejuvenation is to give patients a refreshed, youthful appearance that doesn’t appear artificial or overdone. When you see a good facelift, you don’t notice it. Generally I am able to give patients a look that is 10 to 15 years younger.”  -Dr. Henry Mentz, ACPS plastic surgeon and facial rejuvenation specialist

Dr. Mentz’s Customized Approach to Facelift Surgery

Combining this extensive expertise with his never-ending quest to perfect facelift techniques and results, Dr.Mentz developed a customized facelift approach that produces the greatest, most natural-looking rejuvenation possible. With this method, he measures and grades the level of aging and laxity at various points of the face. Based upon this, he determines the most effective strategy to lift and reposition the soft tissue layers of the face, customizing the degree of lift and tension he performs on each area in order to produce the best improvement.

Based upon the success of this method, Dr. Mentz was invited to write a chapter detailing his techniques in the plastic surgery textbook Advanced Surgical Facial Rejuvenation in 2012.

Dr. Mentz’s Multidimensional Approach to Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Mentz’s revolutionary approach to facelift surgery eliminates one of the most common aesthetic pitfalls and dreaded concerns surrounding facelift surgery: an artificial “pulled” look. That’s because facelifts of the past primarily focused of tightening skin to smooth wrinkles–often resulting in an overly taut appearance. By lifting and tightening the sagging underlying layers of the face as well; more natural, longer-lasting results can be achieved.

Beyond sagging skin and tissues, Dr. Mentz also addresses the other key components that research shows contribute to an aged facial appearance: a loss of facial volume and thinning of the skin. For that reason, he often includes fat grafting to areas such as the cheeks and nasolabial folds to restore youthful, supple contours to the face, while laser skin resurfacing treatments revitalize the skin’s tone, texture, and radiance.
