copy of istock 514781972 1 Many men and women notice the signs of aging creep up in their 30’s and 40’s on the face. The skin may become more relaxed due to natural volume loss, and skin laxity can contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, this excess skin can hang around the jaw line, creating unwanted and noticeable jowls. When patients are considering options for turning back the hands of time, they are often advised to consider the benefits of a surgical facelift.

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a cosmetic, elective surgical procedure used to reverse the signs of aging on the face. The facelift corrects sagging skin, smooths wrinkles, and tightens the jaw area when done by an experienced provider. This is a great way to turn back time and take years off of one’s appearance. Incisions for the facelift are made strategically around the outer portions of the face, typically behind the ears or within the hair line to disguise any possible scarring that may occur.

What can be achieved with a facelift?

Below are just a few of the ways in which patients can improve their appearance using a cosmetic facelift procedure:

  • Address sagging appearance of the cheeks
  • Reduce excess skin along the jawline (known as Jowls)
  • Reduce the depth of the fold of skin from the nose to the mouth
  • Smooth away fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face
