Pull Back the Years of Aging and Reveal a Younger You
Some say that aging has caused them to have a harsh, mournful and tired look that doesn’t match the way they feel inside. Others have specific complaints about being “too jowly,” having a loosely hanging “turkey neck,” or sagging cheeks. With a facelift, patients can achieve a much younger, more rejuvenated appearance.
The facelift is a surgical procedure, used to address volume loss and sagging in the mid-lower face caused by the aging process. By tightening the tissue in this area and removing excess skin, patients can achieve a more youthful appearance with better-defined cheek bones with smoothed wrinkles.
Although once sought mainly by older women, facelifts now are sought by an increasing number of men. Today, men constitute about 9 percent of all facelift patients. Many seek the procedure with the hope that their new, refreshed look will give them a competitive edge in the workplace. Many younger patients seek the procedure in order to maintain their young appearance. They know it is easier to stay looking young than to try to reverse the signs of aging later. Many older patients, including those in their late 70’s and 80’s, also seek facelifts and have achieved excellent results.
Patients should keep in mind that facelifts are highly individualized and the experience others had may differ dramatically from what they experience. Whether they seek a “mini facelift” or a full-fledged facelift combined with a forehead/brow lift, rhinoplasty or eyelid surgery, today’s patients can benefit from the vast improvements that have been made in the facelift procedure over the past decade.
