Aging affects everyone, but in many different ways. Skin will generally tend to lose elasticity over time, which is the reason wrinkles and lines form on the face. For some, jowls and sagging in the midface occur, whereas others may experience sagging in the neck. Facelifts are a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts and tightens skin on the face to rejuvenate your appearance.
Facelifts involve incisions along the hair line in order to pull the skin taut during the facelift. Incisions behind the ears may also be necessary for a more balanced, natural lifting of the neck.
A facelift may be performed with the use of an endoscope, which also allows for deeper tissue tightening. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and may also include liposuction to remove fatty deposits.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Carl Lentz for more information on facelifts.
