As people age, their faces begin to exhibit the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life. Deep creases form, connecting the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowls distend. There is a loss of facial volume, and a decrease in the soft tissues and underlying bone.
Lifting the face and neck can dramatically help reverse these signs of aging. A face lift is a surgical procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to the neck, lower and mid-face. During the procedure we lift the underlying supporting tissues of the neck, jawline, and lower cheek. At the same time any loose or excess skin tissue is removed through an incision around the ear.
Since we perform this procedure under local anesthesia, the recovery time is less. Typically patients return to work in 7 days.
