As we age, gravity and sun exposure create deep facial lines and wrinkles in addition to sagging of the jowls and neck. Face lift surgery can take years off of your face, making you look 10 to 20 years younger. It tightens the jawline and helps smooth the face to reverse the signs of aging.
Face lift surgery consists of removing excess skin and fat from the face and neck. The incisions are made in the scalp and around the back of the ear in inconspicuous places. The results are amazing; you will look and feel years younger. A face lift is often done in conjunction with eyelid surgery and/or laser resurfacing surgery.
Some patients may prefer a lift of the full face as well as the neck, while others may achieve great results with a "short scar" procedure or a "mini face lift". Our board certified plastic surgeons will discuss options with you and offer you the procedure that will fit your specific needs.
Ultimately, a face lift will help build your self-confidence as you feel more comfortable with your appearance. Face lift surgery can be combined with other facial procedures, such as brow lift, eyelid surgery, neck liposuction, or fat grafting, to create a cohesive and all-around youthful appearance in the face and neck.
