A facelift has the ability to reduce the overall signs of aging from your face. As with all plastic surgery, the facelift has come a long way in the last decade. In the past, a facelift simply tightened the skin of the face. Not anymore! You can now have the fat, skin and muscle of your face tightened as well as repositioned. This increased flexibility gives your cosmetic surgeon amazing control to be able to create the look you desire. This means you can finally remove that double chin or those jowls that have in before been very hard to correct. The wrinkles and creases along the nose and below the eyelids are also “filled in” to achieve a more youthful appearance. Your plastic surgeon and you will be able to create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired look. Sometimes the most optimal outcomes will be achieved when the facelift is paired with other procedures like laser skin resurfacing or a brow lift. Your plastic surgeon will help guide you to make the perfect decision for your goals.
