A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy procedure, corrects sags and folds on the lower one-half of the face. Mature adults in Palm Beach Gardens often experience this skin drooping as a result of poorly supported dermal layers. Combined with a decrease in the amount of collagen produced in the skin and a buildup of fatty tissue deposits beneath the dermal layers, the skin begins to show folds and creases. Jowls become more noticeable. If this sounds like you, we can help. Our Palm Beach Gardens clients who undergo a simple facelift procedure often feel as though they have been given back some of their youthful adult years. Best of all, the positive results can last for quite a while.
Are You a Candidate?
We welcome all questions regarding cosmetic procedures. A consultation with us will benefit you greatly because we can quickly ascertain whether or not a facelift is the best corrective procedure for you.
We will examine the facial skin closely, note the size and strength of the facial muscles, and determine the amount of fat that has accumulated beneath the skin. Remember that a facelift can also correct moderate wrinkling on the cheeks and on other areas.
How It’s Performed
It is important to keep in mind that the exact details of facelift procedures vary from patient to patient. During a typical procedure, our surgeon may lift the skin away from the subcutaneous tissues and remove any excess fat. He may also reposition some of the muscle tissue and pull the remaining skin tight for a more youthful look. Again, it all depends on the unique situation.
After you have fully recovered from your facelift procedure, you can enjoy the results. The skin’s surface should be much smoother with far less visible wrinkles and folds. Because the fat takes years to build up, the client may enjoy this more youthful skin surface for years.
