Your face tends to age quite dramatically because it is so open to the many elements, such as the sun, wind and environmental stressors. Plus, because it has some of the most fragile skin of your entire body, it tends to wrinkle, crinkle, crease and dull earlier than expected. Although some signs of facial aging can be successfully treated with non-surgical procedures, the gold standard for facial aging is certainly the facelift, and for good reason.
Facelift procedures have been around for decades and have long been used as ways to get rid of the drooping skin hanging from the lower portion of your face. By getting rid of this skin and tissues and by pulling the remaining tissues tight, you can look incredibly more youthful once again. If you also need to address facial aging higher in your face, you may want to consider a brow lift while a neck lift is useful for treating sagging skin along the lower edges of the face and along the neck.
This is a surgical procedure that requires a recovery. While it is surgical, you will be happy to learn that you will not have to stay in the hospital overnight. As long as you follow our surgeon’s post-operative instructions, you can expect to heal well.
Patients love the facelift because of its many great benefits. It is seen as a long-lasting solution for facial aging because it takes away sagging tissues surgically. In this way, it is far superior to minimally-invasive treatments. Once you have healed, you will not have to come in regularly for follow-up treatments. Although there is no way to stop skin aging altogether, this procedure has the potential to delete years from the age of your face and help you age more gracefully.
