Why a Facelift?
With aging, the facial skin stretches and the facial fat descends. This leads to the characteristic appearance: jowls, deep creases around the mouth (nasolabial folds), and decent of the cheek fat. The lower face becomes heavy and the upper face appears hollow and tired looking. A youthful face, on the other hand, has full cheekbones and thinner lower face.
A facelift is a very effective procedure that restores facial balance by tightening the skin and deep tissues of the face. The procedure provides volume to the upper face and improves the contour of the jawline, as well as make the nasolabial folds less prominent. Facelifts are commonly performed in conjunction with a necklift, which tightens the skin and muscles of the neck to create a smooth and youthful contour.
