Is a Facelift Right for You?
*Individual results may vary
Today more and more women and men are considering a facelift to help restore their face to a more youthful appearance. No longer do you have to worry about having a “plastic” or pulled look that was one of the concerns of the facelifts of old. In fact, at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Laser Center our facelift patients tell us that their family and friends say they look like themselves, just more youthful, refreshed and more vibrant!
A facelift restores a more pleasing contour to your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. Ask Dr. Hardaway and the cosmetic specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Laser Center about the facelift procedure that is right for you.
Are You a Facelift Candidate?
If you are a woman or man whose face and neck have started to sag you may be a good candidate. Dr. Hardaway can assess your skin’s elasticity and help you determine the appropriate procedure. Remember, facelifts have been successfully performed on patients as young as 40 years old and as old as 80 years old.
What is a Facelift?
The Facelift operation elevates and redrapes the facial skin and underlying musculature to eliminate laxity and sagging. The operation can be designed to correct problems in the neck, under the jaw and/or chin and in the cheeks. It is sometimes referred to as the cheek and neck lift.
As individuals age, there is a change in the skin just as there are changes in all other parts of the body. Fatty tissue tends to decrease in volume and in density causing the skin to sag and hang loosely. There are also changes in the bony facial structure that, when combined with changes in muscular action and the effects of gravity, leads to more prominent skin folds. These changes are greatest under the chin, in the upper neck and at the skin folds near the corner of the mouth.
