Sagging skin, fatty deposits, and deep wrinkles are common signs of the aging process. Suddenly, you have deep creases around your nose and eyes. Even your forehead is developing deep furrows.
Undergoing a rhytidectomy, or facelift, can help resolve these and other issues that develop as you age, and Dr. Low at Cosmetic and Reconstructive Specialists of Florida will create a method to fit your needs. After all, everyone’s skin ages differently, and one type of procedure doesn’t always correct the problems.
Benefits of Having a Facelift
Exposure to the sun and wind can prematurely age your facial skin. You also produce less collagen by the time you are in your twenties. Collagen is a protein that supports your skin, helping it to stay firm and supple. As collagen levels decrease, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin often occur.
Don’t forget about gravity and genetics; they also factor into your aging process.
A Rhytidectomy can reverse many of the common signs of aging. A facelift can firm and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and deep creases. The procedure can lift sagging facial muscles and remove fatty deposits around the chin and neck.
Most of our patients see at least ten years taken off of their appearance. A facelift can do more than restore a more youthful appearance, it can also give women and men back their sense of self-confidence.
Is a Facelift Right for You?
It is a personal question, and not everyone wants to erase years from their face. Some individuals are proud to show off their years. However, if you are not ready for that life step, you may be a good candidate for Rhytidectomy.
Dr. Low typically considers clients with one or more of these characteristics ideal candidates for a facelift.
- Sagging skin
- Deep folds around the nose
- Creases underneath the eyes
- Fatty, loose areas around the cheekbones and neck.
