With age, the skin looses elasticity and the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and life’s stresses can be seen in the facial appearance. The jawline becomes slack and “jowly.” Folds appear around the neck and the skin and underlying musculature hangs.
With a facelift, an incision is made in the hair area of the temple extending in front of and continuing behind the ear. A small incision is also made under the chin. The skin is lifted of the face and neck, the deeper muscles are tightened, and the skin is redraped to a higher position. This gives a more youthful appearance to the face and neck area. Many times additional procedures such as a browlift, eyelid surgery, chemical peel, or a new skin care regimen may be desired to obtain maximum outcome.
