A facelift rejuvenates the lower third of the face by erasing many of the undesirable facial signs of aging. The benefits of a facelift include:
- Lifts and removes loose, sagging skin around the neck and jowls.
- Tightens loose, inelastic facial muscles.
- Smoothes out deep wrinkles and fine lines.
- Defines your facial contour, leading to an improved facial profile.
As we age, our facial skin begins to sag, pooling around the jowls, chin, cheeks and neck. A facelift restores a youthful, refreshed appearance by addressing this age-related sagginess.
Unlike a brow lift, a facelift does not typically improve sagging forehead skin and a brow drooping over the eyes. Also, a facelift does not remove bags of fat from beneath the eyes or sagging eyelids, which may be better addressed with eyelid surgery.
A facelift provides results for a decade or longer, and one recent study has shown that a facelift can make you look seven or more years younger than your actual age. A facelift can also be combined with the above mentioned procedures, as well as with facial injectables, to achieve optimum aesthetic results.
