A facelift is a surgical procedure that help patients remove the visible signs of aging in the face and neck.
- These common concers are addressed during a facelift:
- Loosening of facial skin causing sagging
- Deepening fold lines near the nose and corners of the mouth
- Facial fat that has drooped or has simply disappeared
- Jowls forming in the cheeks and jaw
- Loose skin and inappropriate fat of the neck that forms a “turkey neck.”
The loss of youthful facial contours can be due to various factors,including: the thinning of the skin,normal loss of facial fat,gravity,sun damage,smoking,and heredity and stress.
Other procedures often performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes. Skilled surgeons use fat transfer or fillers to replace the lost fatty volume. Skin treatments such as Renuvion skin tightening improve the skin’s quality and texture.
What facelift surgery can’t do
A facelift is restorative surgery,and does not change your fundamental appearance and does not stop the aging process.
A facelift is a surgical procedure; non-surgical facial treatments don’t achieve the same results as surgery. Other treatments may help delay the time for your surgical facelift.
Some minimally invasive treatments,such as stem cell facelifts,are of unproven benefit.
