Aging can take a serious toll on the way you look and feel. If you are bothered by the sagging jowls and loose skin on your face or neck every time you look in the mirror, know that there is a solution. A facelift can leave you with a smoother, younger-looking face. Keep reading to learn about the facelift procedure, the various benefits it offers, and whether you’re a good candidate for it.
How a Facelift Works
The purpose of a facelift is to tighten the skin on the lower part of your face to smooth deep creases between your cheeks and upper lip, add definition to your jawline, and resolve sagging neck skin.
If you choose to undergo a facelift at Image Surgical Arts, you can expect Dr. Harris to make well-hidden incision along your hairline and around your ear so that excess skin can be removed and underlying muscles can be tightened.
To ensure optimal results, Dr. Harris will pair your facelift with liposuction of the neck and jowl. Additionally, Platelet Rich Plasma, volume addition using your own fat and laser skin resurfacing is often added to further improve the results. It is important to note that since a facelift is an invasive procedure, it does come with anesthesia and downtime.
Benefits of a Facelift
A facelift can take years off your face and neck and increase your confidence. You can enjoy firmer, smoother skin and get rid of excess skin and fat that may make you look years older than you really are. A facelift can also restore the natural contours of your face and bring out your natural beauty. It may be just what you need to improve your overall quality of life.
Good Candidates for a Facelift
If you are searching for a long-lasting solution to sagging jowls and loose facial skin, a facelift may be right for you. Dr. Harris highly recommends facelift procedures to men and women who are in good health yet concerned about prominent facial creases, drooping jowls, deep wrinkles under the eyes, sagging skin in the mid-face, and/or lax skin under the chin. To enjoy the best results from a facelift, you should have a strong facial bone structure and good skin elasticity.
