We are all familiar with the aging process and have witnessed first hand the changes in our own appearance. As the years pass we lose elasticity in our skin creating lose, sagging skin in the jowls, neck, jaw line, and face. We notice wrinkles, creases and folds in the brow and around the mouth and eyes. While most of us want and work to maintain the best version of ourselves through diet and exercise and skin care, at a certain point it may take more to get the results you desire. Luckily, today there are many options available from the non-invasive to the minimally invasive to more substantial cosmetic surgical procedures like a Face Lift. A Face Lift can rejuvenate the facial appearance by removing excess skin of the jowls, neck, jaw line and provide an overall lift to the lower third of the face. This creates a natural looking, more youthful appearance. For some patients, the Face Lift alone may not be enough to achieve the results desired and may be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures like an Eyelid Lift, Brow Lift, or Dermal Fillers.
