If you are interested in reversing the signs of aging, a facelift might be right for you. Also called rhytidectomy, a facelift is designed to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck area, which often include:
Deep creases and lines along the nose, extending to the corners of the mouth
Sagging in the middle of the face
Fat that has fallen
Deep creases and lines below the lower eyelids
Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw (which can give the appearance of a double chin, even if you are a normal weight)
Loss of skin tone and firmness in the lower face, creating jowls
While everyone experiences the signs of aging, they can be more noticeable in certain individuals because of factors like stress, heredity, and environmental conditions. The goal of a facelift is to restore the youthful contours of the face and neck, giving you a more youthful appearance overall.
In a full facelift, Dr. Howard Holderness will tighten and adjust the skin in both the face and the neck. This helps to reverse the effects of sagging facial features and the loss of skin elasticity. In some cases, our plastic surgeon may recommend another procedure in conjunction with the facelift, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). During your consultation, we will help you determine the personalized treatment plan that is right for your unique desires and needs.
