An Overview of Face Lift Surgery

Posted October 14, 2017 in Blog

Face lifts are among the most popular cosmetic procedures for both men and women in the country. There are many reasons why your face may show signs of aging as early as your thirties. Stress, UV rays from the sun, genetics, contaminants in your environment, alcohol, smoking, and gravity all play a role in the aging of your skin. These factors may cause the skin to loosen and begin to sag. Wrinkles also begin to develop around your mouth and eyes due to the constant muscle movement in those areas. Fat deposits start to move down towards your chin and neck. Over time, all of these effects create an aged look in your face. Facelift surgery can correct all these concerns by lifting and tightening the skin around the middle and lower half of your face.

There are many different types of face lifts that can be performed. A face lift surgery may vary from person to person because our faces don’t all age in the same way. Every facelift is customized for each patient. Some things that contribute to the customization of your surgery include your gender, the condition of your skin, the location of any fat deposits, your age, and/or a variety of other considerations. Your specific facelift procedure will also depend on what your concerns are regarding your appearance. Patients who are more concerned about the wrinkles around their nose and mouth will have a different facelift procedure than those who are concerned about loose skin around their jaw line.
