A facelift tightens your facial skin, removes wrinkles and reduces the appearance of aging lines and creases. This is accomplished by removing excess skin and sometimes tightening underlying tissue or re-draping the skin to make it taut and smooth. Most facelift techniques focus on the lower facial areas, such as the jawline, jowls and cheeks. A facelift can also focus on the midface or the forehead.
In some techniques, deeper facial tissues may be re-positioned or tightened to restore a more youthful contour. In other techniques, removal or addition of fat or other soft-tissue fillers may be necessary to achieve the best results. Today, many different techniques exist with outcomes that can be consistently reliable, safe, and durable. Your incisions will depend on the area of the face that is targeted and the amount of change you want.
We find that patients with a positive attitude and realistic expectations have the best outcomes from plastic surgery. Here are a few common reasons why you may want to consider a facelift.
- If you feel that your face does not reflect your youthful spirit and energy level
- If you determine that your facial sagging and excess skin is a social or career obstacle
- If you show signs of facial aging but still have some skin elasticity
- One day you look in the mirror and realize that time, gravity, sun exposure and heredity have taken a toll and you simply do not look like yourself any more.
