A facelift is a procedure that corrects sagging, folding and creasing of the skin on the face. It is often combined with other surgical procedures like a brow lift or eyelid surgery. Mature adults often have jowls, sagging cheek skin and more pronounced wrinkling. All of these problems can be corrected with a facelift. Before deciding to undergo this procedure, however, those interested in surgical techniques to improve their facial appearance need to consult with our team of experts. We can quickly determine the probable results merely by examining the face. Our clients deserve to hear accurate information about reasonable outcome expectations, and that is exactly what we will give them.
How a Facelift Can Improve Facial Appearance
Most commonly, facial folds, skin sags, large dynamic wrinkles and jowls form when the skin becomes less and less supported. The effects of gravity, loss of collagen in the skin and an increase in the amount of stored fat beneath the facial skin all contribute to sagging skin. Below the jaw, this can result in horizontal folds.
During a typical facelift, this excess skin and fat is removed and the remaining skin is pulled tight in order to achieve an overall younger appearance. Our surgeon may also lift deeper connective tissue and muscles. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient since each individual is unique.
Advantages of a Facelift Over Other Procedures
Some of the abrasive resurfacing techniques can actually cause permanent discolorations in the skin. Bleaching can occur with peel treatments, and plumping agents can actually cause bumpy, uneven skin. A facelift involves the removal of tissues that are causing the sagging or wrinkling in the first place. It is, therefore, a more effective treatment than non-surgical procedures.
