Why Choose a Facelift?
Some of the issues a facelift can improve include:
- Sagging, loose facial skin
- Deep wrinkles between the corners of the mouth and nose
- Jowls in the cheek or jaw area
- Excess neck fat or loose skin that give the appearance of a “double chin”
A variety of factors may cause your face and neck to develop an older appearance. Some of these include extensive sun damage, smoking, the effects of gravity over time, and loss of facial fat.
A facelift is a restorative process, meaning it should not change your fundamental appearance. A facelift is not able to stop the aging process. However, a facelift can give you a more revitalized and refreshed appearance that can last for years.
Many patients choose a facelift because their current appearance does not reflect the vitality and youth they feel in their lives. It is common for men and women over 40 years old to develop drooping skin, loss of volume, jowls, creases, and other signs of aging that simply can’t be camouflaged by make-up or other methods. Through facelift surgery, it is possible to restore a smoother, younger-looking facial contour that can help you restore your overall confidence in the appearance you project to the world.
If you would prefer a facial rejuvenation method that does not involve surgery, some options include:
- Dermal Fillers
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Fat Transfer
- Ultrasound Treatment
Rejuvenation treatments are minimally invasive but they generally cannot produce the same level of results as a facelift. They can, however, help delay the need for a facelift and may be used in conjunction with a facelift to complement the surgery.
