Aging manifests in many ways, one of which is sagging skin. Gravity does, eventually, take its toll. This is when you may want to consider a Face/Neck Lift.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves signs of aging in your face and neck. The procedure involves repositioning and removing skin, fat and muscle to achieve your desired result.
The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to a variety of factors, including thinning of the skin, which happens as we age, loss of facial fat, sun damage, gravity, and smoking, as well as heredity and stress.
Signs of aging that a face/neck lift can restore include:
- Relaxed, sagging skin on your face
- Facial fat that has fallen or is lacking
- Deep fold or crease lines between your nose and corners of your mouth (often referred to as marionette lines)
- Drooping skin on your cheeks and/or jaw (known as jowls)
- Loose skin and extra fat in your neck that looks like a double chin
As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.
A facelift can only be performed surgically; minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift is necessary. Dr. McLain will talk with you about your goals at each stage.
A face/neck lift cannot treat superficial wrinkles, sun damage or irregularities in your skin color. Facelifts are very individualized surgeries that are unique to each person’s face. Dr. McLain will work with you to determine what is best for the outcome you wish to achieve.
