The effects of aging, gravity, exposure to the sun, and daily stress can cause facial creases, loose facial skin, and age marks. These elements are unavoidable and will eventually have their effects on our facial skin appearance and health. Therefore, a facelift surgery can be a feasible solution for people who are dealing with aging signs and would like to rejuvenate their facial appearance to knock some years off. Although such a facelift is not a permanent solution, it can still serve as a means to fix loose skin and deep creases.
Can A Surgical Facelift Be an Option for Me?
An ideal candidate for a surgical facelift is between 40 and 60 years of age, sporting skin that still is elastic enough and able to adapt. It also helps to have a well-defined facial bone structure to serve as a framework during assessment and surgery. This surgery has also been performed on people who are older than 60, dependent on the condition of their facial skin. As we age, our skin tends to lose elastin and collagen quantities. This contributes to the signs of aging around facial features such as the eyes and mouth. It also contributes to developing loose skin.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Facelift surgery aims to remove aging signs in the face. By tightening the skin, the surface is smoothed out to remove any creases around the mouth and deal with fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It also addresses any loose skin around the neck. The surgeon may also trim or remove excess fat for a slimmer and smoother skin surface. The chin and neck areas are prone to store fatty deposits, which can be addressed with a surgical facelift.
Where Do I Start?
If you are considering a surgical facelift, the process starts with a consultation with one of our professional surgeons.
