As skin begins to age, it looses and sags. Deep lines appear in the natural folds of the skin around the nose and forehead. Fine lines or “crows feet” appear around the eyes and mouth. The skin around the chin and neck sags, creating a “turkey neck” appearance. While heredity, environmental damage and prolonged exposure to the sun can accelerate the aging process, a gradual decline in the smoothness and texture of skin is inevitable as time and gravity win the battle.
Generally an incision is made around the temple area in front of the ear and continues around the ear lobe to the scalp. The skin is raised as the surgeon lifts and tightens the underlying muscle and connective tissue. The skin is then gently pulled, placed back into position, and the incision sutured or clipped.
Many factors contribute to the success of a face lift procedure. Only a skilled plastic surgeon can determine the right combination of procedures and techniques that best match your skin type, ethnic background, skin elasticity and bone structure. The goal is to restore a natural appearance to the face with minimal detectability. At The Plastic Surgery Group, our plastic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and have years of experience in face lift procedures. Setting realistic expectations from your face lift surgery and discussing those options with your surgeon will help maximize your result.
