What Is A Facelift?
Dr. Sean McNally performs a full variety of surgical facial treatments in Portland, OR. One of the most commonly requested procedures at The Oregon Clinic is the facelift. This surgery focuses on distinct regions of the face to treat lax skin and wrinkles to produce a refreshed, firmer appearance. A facelift can focus on the eyes, the cheeks and mid-face, the bottom portion (including the jowls, mouth, and neck), and more, making it a versatile surgery for an all-over younger look. There are many factors that must be considered when choosing a facelift technique, including the condition of your skin, your age, lifestyle, and your own aesthetic desires, among other things. Dr. McNally is a skilled surgeon who has a complete understanding of the complexity and delicate anatomy required for facelift surgery. The overall goal is to produce a natural appearance that's gorgeous, subtle, and still striking.

Am I A Candidate for A Facelift?
Most individuals interested in a surgical facelift wish to address noticeable drooping in the cheek, under eye, and jaw sections of the face. A facelift can address various areas, depending on your personal desired outcome. It is important to note that age won't always define the appropriate time to have a facelift. There are several individual aspects, as well as many lift types, to take into account. The method performed will be different for those under 50 and those over 60. Skin laxity is one of the primary components in the planning process. Also, facelift candidates must be in good overall health, refrain from smoking, and maintain reasonable outcome expectations.
What Are Some of My Options for A Facelift?
There are several possible facelift options Dr. McNally might recommend based on your desired results. Some facelifts rejuvenate the upper area of the face while others focus on the middle and lower portions. In addition, some procedures are slightly more invasive than others. Many of our patients at The Oregon Clinic will also complement their facelift with a brow lift or fillers and BOTOX® to enhance their outcomes. Some of the more known facelift methods offered to patients in Portland, OR include:
- Full Facelift
Considered the gold standard, the full (or "traditional") facelift most often puts an incision near the hairline, then extends down to the area near the temples, reaching the base of the ears. The underlying facial muscles are carefully stretched and safely tightened to produce a lifted outcome, which reduces excessive loose skin and droopy features. The traditional facelift is reserved for patients who show signs of aggressive aging. During a full facelift, several treatments may be used, including upper or lower blepharoplasty to enhance the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.
With a similar method to the mini facelift below, the surgery known as a mid-facelift addresses the droopy features near the cheekbones and the upper jaw. The mid-facelift works well for those who hope to attain improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.
- Lower Facelift
This particular facelift corrects the neck region, chin, and in many cases, the jowls. Nonsurgical methods, such as laser skin tightening or KYBELLA®, can also be used for chin reduction to attain a softer, tighter neck.
- Mini Facelift
When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is made around the ears to lift the skin to a higher position, which helps the mid to lower face. This method creates nice and subtle enhancements that look beautiful and natural.
The Oregon Clinic Reviews
Dr. McNally did a scar revision for breast cancer surgery that I had over five years ago and I am so pleased! I wish I had done it sooner. I am blown away by his skill (I look as good as new)! My experience was perfect from start to finish. Five stars!!
I chose Dr. McNally after diligent research and interviewing multiple surgeons to perform several procedures including abdominoplasty and liposuction. Ultimately, I chose Dr. McNally for his bedside manner, credentials, professionalism, confidence and skill. It’s difficult to find a plastic surgeon who is skilled at multiple procedures that are cosmetic and medically necessary, who go to bat for their patients with insurance companies…That speaks to Dr. McNally’s true character. Dr. McNally takes time answer any questions and really listens. He has greatly exceeded any expectations for pre op/post op care and results on my body contour. I’m still in shock with how my body looks and feels and look forward to enjoying living in comfort with style. Major surgery can be a scary process, but every step of the way, I felt cared for and comfortable knowing that Dr. McNally would deliver the best results with the latest technology and skill. If you’re looking for a surgeon with empathy, confidence and ability to deliver results, look no further. Thank you, Dr. McNally! ~M
Dr. McNally was great; friendly, good bedside manner, and good surgeon. Happy with the results.
Dr. McNally changed my whole life for the better! I cannot say enough great things about him. From the very first appointment I had with him I felt completely comfortable and knew I made the right choice having him be my surgeon. He actively listened to any concerns I had and informed me on what to expect pre and post surgery. The procedure with him went smoothly with no complications. He put my mind at ease during my healing process and my incision lines are practically invisible! So thank you Dr. McNally!!! You have no idea the impact you made on my life! Highly highly recommend! (Top surgery procedure)
I just explanted with Dr. McNally. I really wanted to have an en bloc capsulectomy done and it was really important to me to have the right surgeon to do this. Although Dr. McNally could not guarantee he could do this and would only do this if this did not put me at risk, which I greatly appreciated that he was successful in doing the en bloc capsulectomy along with a lift. I am extremely happy with the results and I highly recommend Dr. McNally. He is very skilled and caring.
