Growing older doesn’t have to mean you don’t like what you see in the mirror. As we age, a number of changes take place that can leave us looking older, tired or even angry. A facelift can address several age-related concerns and leave you looking like a rejuvenated, more-rested version of yourself.
A traditional facelift takes a comprehensive approach to the signs of aging that affect the entire face. During this procedure, the deep creases that can develop around the mouth can be resolved. Sometimes, dermal fillers can be effective in further plumping this area and restoring youthful volume.
There are many minimally-invasive treatment options for the effects of aging, such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers. However, when the skin becomes loose or saggy around the face and neck, nonsurgical treatments are not always effective. A facelift can enhance the contours of the face and remove excess skin for a smoother and firmer appearance.
A neck lift can be a wonderful addition to a facelift because it extends the anti-aging benefits beyond the face to include the neck area. During a neck lift, a small incision is made near the ears and the neck is lifted, smoothed and excess skin is removed.
Another common procedure performed with a facelift is a brow lift because it addresses the lines and wrinkles above and between the eyebrows and lifts the forehead.
Facial rejuvenation procedures are not a one-size-fits-all surgery, and the best results come from a customized approach that’s designed to meet your unique needs. Meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine what combination of procedures might be best suited to help you put your best face forward.
