Sagging neck skin, jowls, and wrinkles in the lower face can belie an energetic and cheerful you. Factors such as genetic predisposition, sun damage, smoking, and weight fluctuation can affect facial aging. Although cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections, laser treatments, and filler injections can improve skin texture and smooth wrinkles, a facelift operation is the most comprehensive and durable procedure for rejuvenating the face. During a facelift operation sagging facial muscles are re-suspended, excess fat is removed from the neck, and wrinkles and jowls are made smooth.
Facelift surgery has evolved significantly in the past thirty years. There are now several variations of the procedure available to you. The SMAS facelift is the most common technique for the facelift operation. In the SMAS facelift, the muscle layer under the skin is tightened before excess skin is removed. This facelift technique results in long-lasting, natural-looking rejuvenation of the face. Deep plane and sub-periosteal facelifts are more extensive procedures. The Short scar facelift (mini facelift) is a less extensive surgical option that works well when there is no significant sagging in the neck.
