Face & Neck Lift
Facial aging results in a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue and wrinkles. These signs of aging can impact how we feel about ourselves. If you wish to look as good as you feel a facelift may be the answer for you. A facelift (or rhytidecotmy) is a surgical procedure to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift smoothes the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues, and removes excess fat. The end result is a smoother, firmer and fresher look. Mid-face sagging can create a deep crease below the lower eyelid (called a tear trough) and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold) that can make you appear tired and sad. You may consider a facelift if you have some of the following concerns:
- Wrinkles, excess fatty tissues or loose skin in the neck
- A deep line runs between the corners of your nose and mouth
- Loss of well defined jaw line
- Wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the cheekbones
