If your goal is an overall reduction of facial aging signs a facelift might be your top option. As with all cosmetic surgery, the facelift has come a long way in the last decade. In the past, a facelift merely tightened the skin of the face. Not anymore! It is now possible for your cosmetic surgeon to fully reposition fat, skin and even muscle to get your desired appearance. This means you can now get rid of that double chin or those jowls that have in the past been very difficult to remove. The creases along the nose and below the eyelids are also “filled in” to create a more youthful appearance. Surgeons create a plan that is unique to reach your goals. Since every patient is different your path to a rejuvenated appearance will be decided between you and your cosmetic surgeon. When looking for a dramatic improvement other surgeries can be added to your treatment plan. These often include; laser skin resurfacing, eyelid surgery, implants, and brow lifts.
