Is a Facelift for me?

 

A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging.  A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation.

The following are some common facial characteristics that make you an appropriate candidate for a facelift:

  • – Sagging skin in your midface and/or jawline
  • – Deep creases extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • – Lines extending from each corner of your mouth down your chin (marionette lines)
  • – Facial fat (volume) that has fallen or is displaced
  • – Sagging and loss of muscle tone in the lower face, resulting in jowls
  • – A double chin, resulting from loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
  • Creased and sagging skin in your neck

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
