With time, sun exposure, and gravity, the tissues of the face begin to descend. Deep creases begin to appear near the mouth, jowls obscure the jaw line, and the skin of the neck becomes very lax. In addition, there is volume loss in the face, leading to decreased support of the overlying facial features.
A facelift is able to counteract the forces of aging and re-suspend the deeper facial structures to achieve a natural, more youthful appearance. It restores the jaw line, neck line, and fullness to the cheeks. This is done by making incisions within the hair and around ear that are hidden and are typically not visible once healed.
There are different types of facelift procedures and a facelift can be combined with a necklift or other facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve natural results and erase years of aging.
