Looking our age is something we’re all trying to avoid after our twenties, men and women alike. The main indicators of this are early signs of aging in the face, neck and the skin around the eyes. The older we get, the more our tissues begin to break down, our cells degenerate and over time a small wrinkle here and there, can become many wrinkles. Our face is the champion of our youth. The more animated we are with facial expressions, the more likely we are to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
A facelift (rhytidectomy) can help take care of any loss of volume and laxity within the skin of the face and neck areas; typically a facelift and neck lift are two separate procedures. Tightening of the muscles in the neck helps to reduce the appearance of “turkey neck,” should you need it. Facelift is often combined with fat grafting and laser resurfacing to give every patient the results they desire.
