Genetics, gravity, sun exposure, lifestyle habits, and a host of other factors play a role in the aging process and many of the major signs of aging show up on the face and neck. If you are noticing deep creases, loose skin, and fat deposits forming around the face and neck, you may be a good candidate for a facelift in Atlanta. Facelift surgery can correct many signs of aging and help you maintain a youthful look for years to come.
Benefits of Facelift Surgery
Facelift surgery is a fairly aggressive procedure and often a last resort for patients that cannot achieve temporary results with fillers, injectables, and skin tightening treatments. If you are noticing the signs of aging are becoming more pronounced and you want to maintain your youthful appearance, talk to Dr. McCluskey about undergoing facelift surgery.
Some of the benefits of a facelift include:
- Tightens sagging in the middle of the face
- Fills deep creases underneath the eye area
- Smooths out creases between the nose and mouth
- Reduces jowls
- Removes excess fat deposits under the chin and jaw
In many cases, facelift surgery can take several years or up to a decade off your appearance. This type of surgery provides long lasting results and you may be able to enhance your new look with dermal fillers or injectables at a later date.
What to Expect with Facelift Surgery
Men and women who have lost some skin elasticity and are noticing some areas of the face are starting to sag may be ideal candidates for facelift surgery. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and typically involves making a series of incisions around the hairline and face. Dr. McCluskey may perform a full facelift (traditional facelift) to rejuvenate the face by trimming away excess skin and redraping the tissue. A limited-incision facelift can rejuvenate the area around the eyes and mouth after making very short incisions at the temples and around the ears.
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift in conjunction with facelift surgery if you have loose skin and excess fat around the chin and neck.
