You want to look younger. Doesn’t everyone? In today’s society, where youth and beauty are more valued than ever, facelift surgery is routine and affordable. Rid yourself of the sagging, the deep creases, the crow’s feet, the smile lines, the jowls, the double chin, and all the other wear and tear.
Aging is a part of life but the effects are not always welcome. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag into lines and wrinkles. This effect may be reversed with a face lift. A facelift procedure is designed to achieve a younger and rejuvenated-looking appearance by reducing the effects of stress, aging and gravity.
Rhytidectomy is the most time-tested procedure in the plastic surgery playbook, but that doesn’t mean every doctor can provide the same satisfying results. Dr. Adams will consult with you on appropriate techniques and establish realistic goals in order to restore and rejuvenate your face while maintaining its essential essence.
The surgery is performed to improve a patient’s appearance through the removal of excess skin and fat. The underlying muscles of the face may be tightened or loosened depending on your individual concerns. Dr. Adams will then elevate the remaining tissues, counteracting the effects of gravity. The SMAS face lift technique is often combined with facial implants and a brow or neck lift to create an even more dramatic change. The benefits of a face lift procedure include:
- Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
- Achieving a younger and well-rested appearance
- Reduction in sagging facial skin
- Improvement of deep facial folds, including laugh lines and forehead lines
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you look in the mirror and notice visible signs of aging, like facial lines or wrinkles. Most patients choose this procedure because they wish to counteract these signs of aging and find that a Rhytidectomy can erase years off their appearance.
Most patients request a face lift that focuses on the lower half of their face, including their cheeks, jawline, and jowls. Face lift surgery may also be performed on the middle portion of the face or the forehead. If you wish to focus primarily on the upper half of your face, consider a brow lift.
After surgery, you will likely find that the full results of the procedure are visible within a few weeks. The results of face lift procedures are permanent, though they do not stop the aging process. Your appearance may continue to change over time as a result of gravity or the aging process. Many of Dr. Adams’ face lift patients return for a brow lift or cosmetic injections to keep their appearance looking fresh.
