Over time, gravity, sun exposure, the stresses of daily life, and simple genetics can start to really take their toll on the appearance of the face and neck. Deep creases can begin to appear beside the mouth, while the jaw line slackens and becomes jowly and the neck develops unattractive, loose folds and bulging fat deposits.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift in Phoenix?
The facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy (literally, “removal of wrinkles”) procedure, is designed to rejuvenate the mid- to lower face and neck. You’re most likely a great candidate for our facelift procedure if you’re in the Phoenix or Scottsdale areas, and you’re looking to address any of the following issues:
- Midface sagging
- Deep creases under the eyes
- Nasolabial folds, between the nose and mouth
- Jowls, due to loss of muscle tone
- Sagging areas of excess fat
- Loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw
When it comes to the issues mentioned above, a facelift can produce a dramatic improvement, but it’s important to understand that a facelift does not stop the aging process, by any means. Ove time, the signs of aging will gradually begin to appear once again.
Further, it’s important to clarify that a facelift will not necessarily rejuvenate the brow, eyelids, nose, and some parts of the midface. Combining your facelift with a brow lift or eyelid surgery, however, is a great way to address multiple areas of concern. We also offer a procedure that is colloquially known as the “liquid facelift,” which can rejuvenate the midface without any invasive surgery, and we can also use injectable soft-tissue fillers, facial implants, and skin resurfacing to enhance your results.
