A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and re-drapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct mid-face sagging, laugh lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation.
When to Consider a Facelift
- If you feel that your face does not reflect your youthful spirit and energy level
- If you determine that your facial sagging and excess skin is a social or career obstacle
- If you show signs of facial aging but still have some skin elasticity
- A facelift can improve many areas of the face in one surgery
- Can last for ten years or more and can make you appear 10 to 15 years younger
- Can re-contour the neck and jawline better than all other techniques
- A facelift will not create a ‘new’ you, just a younger version of yourself
- There will be some downtime associated with this procedure
- Depending on your age and skin type, you may want a secondary procedure
Am I a good candidate for a facelift?
The following are some common facial characteristics that make you an appropriate candidate for a facelift:
- Sagging skin in your mid-face and/or jawline
- Deep creases extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth
- Lines extending from each corner of your mouth down your chin
- Facial fat or volume that has fallen or is displaced
- Sagging and loss of muscle tone in the lower face, resulting in jowls
- A double chin, resulting from loose skin and excess fatty deposits under
- Creased and sagging skin in your neck
