Your face is the first thing people see when they look at you. If your face looks old, tired, or unhealthy, people may think this is a reflection of you. Just because aging is natural doesn’t mean you don’t want your face to age with you. Every day, many men and women choose to erase the subtle signs of aging with rhytidectomy, more commonly referred to as a facelift.

As you age, your face gradually loses the depth and definition of a more youthful appearance. Throughout your life, gravity slowly pulls on the soft tissues of your face while the sun also helps to accelerate the aging process. The results are often creases between the nose and mouth as well as more prominent “jowls” along the jaw line. A facelift can help reverse this process.

A facelift is designed to diminish signs of aging in the face and neck. It can correct a variety of unwanted flaws, including wrinkling caused by loose and sagging skin, jowls in the lower cheek area and skin folds in the neck. Many facelift patients say it helped them maintain a more refreshed and revitalized appearance. Facelifts are often done in conjunction with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facial liposuction.

To respect the privacy of our patients, photos of actual pre- and post-operative patients will be shown only at your consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.
