If you are bothered by the signs of aging in your face, a facelift may be right for you. Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as sagging in the midface, deep creases below the lower eyelids, deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth, fat that has fallen or is displaced, loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls, and loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin.

Rejuvenating procedures typically performed in conjunction with a face lift are brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.

As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. A facelift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.

It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to six months for incision lines to mature. Life-long sun protection will help maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage. In addition, a healthy lifestyle will also help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

Brow Lift

If you are bothered by expression lines or other signs of aging in the brow region, a brow lift may be right for you. A brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes, improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines, vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows, repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid, and raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position.

Rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a brow lift include eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes, facelift to correct aging changes in the mid to lower face and neck regions, and skin resurfacing techniques.

Brow lift surgery is a good option for you if you are physically healthy, you don't smoke, or you have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
