As the years go by, the signs of aging on the face can make you look old, tired, and upset. Our facial plastic surgeons perform personalized facelifts to reverse the signs of aging, refresh your facial appearance, and make you look youthful.
How the Face Ages
As you grow older, the gradual loss of collagen and elastin from the skin leads to the onset of facial wrinkles. Collagen and elastin hold your skin tissues together, so their gradual degradation leads to a sagging appearance. Furthermore, as the muscles underneath your facial tissues weaken, you develop jowls, deep facial folds, and a double chin. Our surgeons measure and grade the degree of laxity to curate a facelift technique that refreshes your appearance, re-introducing you to your younger self.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that reverses the effects of age on your face. The procedure involves making strategic incisions along the hairline or behind the ears, following which the flap of skin on both sides of the face is pulled back. The surgeon trims away excess skin tissues, removes excess fat deposits, and tightens underlying facial muscles, making your face look firm and youthful. A facelift can take a decade off your face.
