Facelift

A facelift can give you the youthful appearance you desire.

As we age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life begin to take their toll on our faces. If you are concerned that your face could have a more youthful appearance, consider a facelift (known as a rhytidectomy),

A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Sagging in the middle of your face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or has disappeared
  • Loss of skin tone in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can give even a person of normal weight the appearance of a double chin

The result is more youthful, rested appearance.

Facelifts should be performed by board-certified plastic surgeons who are experienced, skilled and have the eye of an artist. A facelift should subtly improve your appearance, not drastically reinvent it. To achieve this delicate balance of change and familiarity, a facelift may be done along with some other procedures as well. Other rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift are a brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.

A facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. Also, a facelift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results. A facelift can also be done to complement a neck lift procedure. Both procedures involve surgery and should be considered seriously.

To learn how — or if — a facelift can help correct the issues you are unhappy with, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kevitch, Dr. Chung or Dr. Jan. They will ask you about your expectations and desired outcomes. They will also talk about your health and your lifestyle, and then help determine the right course for you.
