A Facelift Can Turn Back the Clock On Your Face and Neck

There is a huge selection of facial and neck rejuvenation treatments available to choose from these days, but if you are looking for a full-service procedure to address facial and neck aging simultaneously, a facelift is your best option.

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is performed to remove excess skin and fat and reposition the facial skin for a natural, youthful appearance of the face neck, and jawline. Like turning back the clock, an expertly crafted facelift will rejuvenate you and take 10-15 years off your appearance!

As we age, our skin begins to loosen and sag which can add unwanted years and pounds to our appearance. While there are procedures that can help tighten relaxing skin, once it starts to sag a surgical procedure is usually the most effective form of correction. During a facelift, excess skin and fat are removed through carefully placed incisions, and the skin is repositioned and sutured into place. The sutures are usually removed after a week and patients can resume their normal activity at that time.

A traditional facelift can be performed alone or simultaneously with another facial procedure, such as a nose job or an eyelid surgery, to balance and enhance the appearance of the face. Whether alone or combined, having a skilled and experienced surgeon perform your facelift is vital to having a successful outcome.

There is no “right” age to have a facelift. If the appearance of your face and neck don’t match the way you feel, you should talk to an expert to see if a facelift is a good option for you.
