Is a facelift surgery and neck lift right for me?
Aging of the face is inevitable. Facial aging can involve volume loss and descent of facial fat. The jaw line softens into jowls and fine lines appear on the corners of the eyes, forehead, and face. Vertical folds and laugh lines appear in the neck and around the mouth as we age. A facelift addresses the folds and jowls of the jaw. More so, a facelift surgery can help boost confidence while returning a more youthful appearance. The trend in rhytidectomy is to have surgery at a younger age. The typical patient is likely 40 or 50 with early signs of aging. Although older patients, 60 – 70 years old, in good health are also candidates. Options for facelift surgery involve a mini-facelift, a deep plan facelift, or a neck lift. A mini facelift causes a small lift in the SMAS (muscular layer of the face). A formal deep plane facelift elevates the SMAS and resuspends the face. A neck lift removes excess fat beneath the chin and corrects muscular bands in the neck.
