If your normal beauty routine no longer rejuvenates your face as well as you would like, it may be time to consider a surgical solution. Facelift is a popular procedure for reversing signs of aging and sun damage to restore a more youthful appearance. In this blog, Dr. Avron Lipschitz, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Stuart, Florida, explains some of the changes you can expect from facelift.
Fewer Wrinkles and Lines
As you age, your skin produces less collagen, a protein that plays a large part in keeping your skin elastic. Lax skin makes it easy for lines to settle on your face. By tightening the skin and manipulating the underlying muscles, the skin on the lower portion of your face should become smoother with smile lines, marionette lines, and other assorted wrinkles being eliminated or significantly diminished.
Jowls form along your jawline due to sagging skin and fat. This rounds and ages the bottom of your face. By removing fat and tightening the muscle tissue, Dr. Avron lifts the jowls to restore definition to the jawline. This also helps to diminish the appearance of a double chin.
Sleeker Neck Contours
Although the name “facelift” may suggest otherwise, most facelift procedures Dr. Avron performs address signs of aging on the face and neck. If you have started to develop loose skin (sometimes called a “wattle”) on the neck or visible vertical neck bands, these issues can be corrected with a facelift by removing excess skin and tightening the weakened platysmal muscles.
A Younger Appearance
The goal of facelift is not to give you a “new” face, but rather to make your face look more like it did a decade prior. By having this surgery, you can rediscover your younger self with great looking skin. With masterful technique, Dr. Avron prioritizes creating natural results so that your face does not have a “pulled” look. Best of all, this transformation is long-lasting, especially if you commit to a healthy lifestyle and avoid sun exposure.
