As we age, the appearance of the face and neck changes. Relaxation of facial tissues, sun damage, and environmental factors all contribute to aging issues, such as a drooping appearance, sagging jowls, a double chin, deep lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and even worse, a loss in confidence. If you’re looking to turn back the hands of time, a facelift with Dr. Adam Becker of Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, NC may be the solution you’ve been searching for.
We receive lots of questions about facelift surgery every day, so we are here to address some of the most common questions we hear.
What is a facelift?
A facelift (also known as “rhytidectomy”) is a surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. During surgery, the facial tissues are tightened and excess skin is removed to correct sagging skin and improve facial contours. Facelifts take years off the aging face, resulting in a natural-looking, more youthful appearance. Individual results may vary.
Who should consider a facelift?
Anyone in good health who is looking to improve visible signs of aging including deep lines around the nose and mouth, loss of jawline caused by jowls, loose tissues under the chin and muscle bands in the neck. While individual circumstances vary due to genetics and facial anatomy, it is a popular and effective solution that delivers beautiful, long-lasting results.
