Aging is a natural progression of life, but facelift surgery can refresh your outlook in your appearance.
As we age, skin loses elasticity and facial tissues lose volume, which results in jowls and wrinkles. The facelift procedure creates younger-looking appearance by:
- Removing excess skin
- Tightening sagging skin
- Smoothing deep folds
- Lifting and tightening the deep facial tissues
There are two types of facelift surgery: the mini facelift, and the standard facelift.
A mini facelift can correct signs of aging before they become pronounce. Patients with mild sagging in the cheeks are good candidates for a mini facelift. The surgeon tightens deep facial and structural tissues around the cheeks using a less invasive technique than a standard face lift.
Standard facelifts restore a youthful look to the face and neck repairing moderate to advanced aging. The deeper tissues beneath the skin are repositioned and excess skin is removed to eliminate sagging in the lower face. This surgery is extensive and requires significant recovery time.
