Facelift Q & A
What is a facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that helps reduce visible signs of aging that have occurred due to skin thinning, loss of facial fat, sun damage, smoking, stress and genetics. A facelift works to make individuals appear younger through:
- Removing the appearance of wrinkles
- Removing the appearance of deep fold lines between the nose and corner of the mouth
- Tightening sagging facial and neck skin, such as a double chin
- Removing excess or fallen facial and neck fat
- Correcting for loss of facial fat
- Contouring the jowls, cheek and jaw
What areas does a facelift target?
A facelift improves the visible appearance of aging on the face and neck, including the forehead, jawline, cheeks, and neck. To rejuvenate the appearance of aging on the eyes or eyebrows, sometimes eyelid surgery and a brow lift are performed with a facelift. Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics also offers non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments using IPL and radiofrequency laser technology to improve the coloration, clarity, and texture of the skin.
Is a facelift right for me?
If you are looking to achieve a more youthful appearance in your face and neck, a facelift may be an effective solution for you. A facelift can help reduce the visible appearance of aging, but it does not stop the aging process, nor does it change the general structure of your face or appearance.
