Surgical Facelifts in Gauteng
Early signs of aging are common to show themselves in the facial areas – around the eyes, mouth, and nose. These signs can include baggy eyelids, wrinkles, and creases around the mouth and nose. Surgical facelifts are designed to address and correct these early aging signs to temporarily turn back the effects of aging and result in a rejuvenated expression. If you are considering a surgical facelift in Gauteng, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your first choice.
The Effects of Aging on My Skin
Collagen is the primary structural protein that is present in our skin. As we age, the skin experiences a decrease of collagen cell production, along with a loss of elastin cells – determining the elasticity of our skin. The effects of collagen and elastin loss can cause the skin in your face to form early aging signs such as loose skin, wrinkles, and heavy eyelids.
Exposure to the sun, along with the effect of gravity on the skin, promote these early signs of aging. Although aging is inevitable, a surgical facelift will temporarily correct these signs and result in a rejuvenated facial expression. Therefore, you can look several years younger and have a gorgeous smile on your face without being hampered by wrinkles, creases, or baggy eyelids.
A surgical facelift will reduce the visible signs of aging as the surgeon will remove excess tissue from affected areas on the face and tighten the underlying muscles to smooth out wrinkles and tighten up loose skin. Baggy lower eyelids can also be reduced by targeting the fat cells underneath the skin. As a result, you can expect a smoother, firmer, and rejuvenated skin surface after your recovery.
