A facelift is a surgical procedure that is done to help repair the visible signs of aging. As people age, their skin may sag or become wrinkled. This cosmetic surgery doesn’t prevent skin aging, but it restores a more youthful look to patients by tightening and lifting the skin on the face and neck.

Aging of the face and neck is caused by:

  • Sun exposure
  • Genes
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet

Facelifts can address:

  • Fine skin lines
  • Deep furrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin
  • Jowls along the jaw line
  • Eyelid and eyebrow droop

The best candidates for facelifts are people who are in good health. It’s important to thoroughly discuss all of your cosmetic surgery options with a good surgeon before choosing this procedure.
