Get Your Youthful Look Back with Facelift Surgery
If you are starting to notice your skin is beginning to sag or you are developing loose jowls, facelift surgery may be the most effective way to restore your youthful look. The speed of the aging process varies by person and you may be genetically predisposed to developing deeper wrinkles and folds at an earlier age than others. Whatever the case may be, the plastic surgery team at the UNC Burn Reconstruction & Aesthetic Center can put together a customized treatment plan to address your main concerns with your mid to lower face in just one procedure. Facelift surgery can be very effective for restoring your youthful look and may take up to a decade off your appearance.
Am I Ready for Facelift Surgery?
Many patients wonder whether surgery is necessary when they can resort to non-invasive skin tightening treatments, Botox, or dermal fillers to achieve a more youthful look. While non-surgical treatments can provide temporary results, they typically cannot produce a drastic change—especially as the face continues to age. Facelift surgery can transform your appearance and delivers permanent results.
You may be ready for this procedure if you are concerned about the following:
- Sagging jowls and loose skin around the jawline
- Skin folds around the neck
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Sagging skin around the face and neck
- Deeper lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes (a brow lift or eyelid surgery may be necessary to correct these areas)
- Hollowed cheeks
- Lack of muscle tone around the upper and lower cheeks
Most patients who undergo a facelift are between 40 and 60 years of age and in relatively good health. The procedure involves removing excess fat and skin, and also repositioning the facial muscles to create more youthful contours.
