As we age, so does our skin. Small changes such as loss of elasticity, shape, and tightness in the skin take place over time but seem to happen all at once wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear. While the visible signs of aging cannot be prevented entirely, you can reverse the aging process with a facelift procedure.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is cosmetic surgery that is typically performed on people between the ages of 40 and 70. Both men and women receive facelifts in order to combat wrinkles and lines.
Different types of facelifts are available, depending upon the condition of the skin and what results are expected. With a full facelift, the surgeon aims to remove creases below the eyes, lines around the mouth, and excess fat under the chin. This treatment requires a long incision that is usually hidden along the temple and around the neck.
A mid facelift requires a shorter incision and only addresses specific areas of the face. A mini facelift usually just attempts to get rid of some excess fat around the jaw, neck, and lower cheeks for a more youthful appearance. Webll work with you to determine the safest and most effective treatment plan for your needs.
