Are you one of the many people wondering why darkened patches of skin on your face showed up out of the blue? Melasma is a facial skin condition that’s characterized by brown or blue-gray patches or freckle-like spots that appear on the forehead, cheeks, chin, upper lip and/or nose. It is more common in females and sometimes referred to as the “mask of pregnancy” because it can be triggered by hormones during pregnancy. Sunlight exposure plays a major role in triggering the appearance of melasma, along with birth control pills, HCG diets and hormone replacement.

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.
What type of facelift is right for me?
During your consultation, Dr. Becker will evaluate your facial anatomy, history, and personal goals to determine the best technique that will yield the best results for you.
