Aging often manifests readily in your face as it robs your skin of firmness and elasticity. In fact, there’s more to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging face. It doesn’t just affect how others perceive us, but also how we perceive ourselves. It’s not uncommon for younger people to notice signs of premature aging like aging in the middle of the face, neck, and jawline. A facelift helps improve sagging facial skin and weakened muscles by getting rid of extra fat and restoring skin elasticity.* By and large, a facelift will help make your skin look naturally youthful, vibrant, and rejuvenated.*
A facelift, technically referred to as rhytidectomy, is a type of surgery that helps improve the appearance of the signs of aging. For instance, lack of firmness in the middle part of the face can lead to the appearance of a tear trough just below the lower eyelid, and noticeable as a deep crease. In addition, it can also cause a deep crease between the nose and mouth, making you appear perpetually sad or upset even though you feel the opposite. Jowls may also result from fat that droop in the lower face as well as lack of muscle tone in the area. In both circumstances, the jaw line can sag further down the neck.
An individual of normal weight but with loose skin and deposits of extra fat under the chin can give that person the appearance of a double chin. For this issue, a facelift helps improve the laxity of facial muscles as well as promote skin elasticity.* For problems that specifically affect the face’s middle parts where there isn’t too much skin, a mid-face lift or a limited incision lift may be a good alternative to the traditional facelift.
