As we age, our skin starts losing its moisture and becomes less supple. Plus, years of exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays add up. These factors cause wrinkles and fine lines to form on the face and neck. These wrinkles are supplemented by fat deposits underneath our chin and jaw.
A facelift can turn back the clock and reverse some of these signs of aging. In a facelift, excess skin and fat are removed, and the skin and underlying muscle are repositioned to regain a much more youthful appearance.
Facelifts are relatively complicated surgery and your recovery will take some time. You will have some swelling and bruising for a week to 10 days. You can usually return to work in two weeks, and resume all your normal activities in three weeks. You will start noticing the effects of your facelift very soon after the surgery.
If you want a solution to the wrinkles and fat deposits that have accumulated under your eyes and chin, a facelift from our office could be the answer you seek.
