A Facelift Can Address Several Different Problem Areas

It is estimated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that an average of 126,000 facelift procedures are performed each year. In its most basic sense, a facelift is designed to address and reduce the natural signs of skin aging around your neckline and face.

Here at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee many of the facelifts we perform also include a neck or eyelift performed in conjunction. This helps to address all of these related areas all at one time instead of having multiple procedures in the future.

Some people having a facelift performed are also interested in having facial implants on the cheek bones or chin. This could also include a fat augmentation, where liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from one part of the body and have it placed into the cheek, or chin to give the area prominence, without the use of implants.

A facelift can also address issues like sagging in the middle of your face, deep creases below the lower eyelids or along the nose and mouth. It can also to improve skin tone and texture in the lower face as well as loose skin or excess fatty deposits under your chin.

Your recovery time will vary depending on several factors, including your age, general state of health. Tobacco use has a negative effect on how the skin heals, you might want to seek a cessation program in advance of the facelift.
