Improved Facial Appearance with a Facelift
As we age, our skin gradually begins to lose its elasticity. Instead of tight, youthful skin, we are left with loose, sagging skin in areas that may not be desirable. Many people experience loss of skin elasticity in areas such as the stomach and arms, but it becomes most noticeable when it happens in the chin and face.
Many people see our faces front and foremost before anything else, and we often look at ourselves in mirrors and selfies. If you are unhappy with sagging or loose skin on your face, you may be considering a facelift. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that can give an older individual a more youthful appearance by removing excess or loose and sagging skin and tightening muscles and the deeper tissues of the face.
Facelifts for Sagging Skin
Facelifts are performed to remove fatty deposits and remove excess or saggy skin on the face, neck, chin, and jowls. A facelift can remove sagging skin around the jawline, also known as the jowls. A facelift, though it can improve the look of wrinkles, is not suggested for the treatment of fine lines, fine wrinkles, or damage to the skin from sun exposure. Other methods of treatment may be used to improve the look of the skin itself if a patient expresses concerns over their skin quality.
A rhytidectomy can improve the appearance of the upper, middle and lower thirds of the face including the neck. Facelifts can be performed on individuals who are interested in improving the look of sagging or loose aging skin.
