We live in a society that emphasizes youth and energy and fortunately, we also live in a time that offers many remedies to improve one’s appearance. A facelift can offer many benefits to slow down the aging process. Here are some of the ways they accomplish that:
- Jowls that cover the jawline can be removed
- Wrinkles or frown lines around the eyes can be removed
- Sagging skin can be tightened
- Excess fat can be removed
This procedure can create a more youthful and invigorated facial appearance. If your face is noticeably aging and you want to do something about it getting a facelift can be a good investment in your appearance. Because individuals age at different rates and in different ways there are different types of procedures both surgical and nonsurgical. Depending on your needs for facial rejuvenation we may recommend one of the following facelift procedures:
The mini-facelift treats aging in the lower face, including the beginnings of jowls excess skin, and minimal skin sagging. This procedure is not designed for severe signs of facial aging but it can create a more uplifted and smoother facial contour.
The mid-facelift deals with the middle face region by elevating the tissues of the cheeks to eliminate sagging and to reduce deep creases. This procedure is best for patients who do not have jowls or excess skin sagging in the neck. The mid-facelift can improve facial definition, create more attractive cheek contours, get rid of the nasolabial folds that go from the nose to the corner of the mouth, and even improve the lower eyelids.
This procedure typically takes place following liposuction. It can also be used simply to reduce the appearance of skin laxity in the neck and jowls area. The best candidates are physically healthy people who have realistic expectations and are looking to minimize the appearance of sagging skin under their chin and jawline.
