A Facelift Can Reduce the Appearances of Aging Skin to Rejuvenate Your Youthful Appearance

The aging process results in many different changes to the human body. One of the more visibly apparent changes is the natural process of skin aging. As the years go by, your skin gradually reduces the rate at which it replenishes old skin cells with newer, younger ones. This also results in a decreased production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.

The net effect of all of this is sagging facial skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Many people will attempt to mitigate the appearance of skin aging with skin creams fortified with retinol, prescription-strength Retin-A or a microdermabrasion treatment at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee.

For people struggling with significant aging or sagging skin issues, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye might recommend a facelift. This surgical treatment is designed to improve sagging in the middle of your face and deep creases below the lower eyelids or along the nose and mouth. It can also improve skin tone and texture in the lower face as well as loose skin or excess fatty deposits under your chin.

Having cheek or chin implants installed to accent key features on your face can also be performed in conjunction with a facelift.

Your personal recovery time varies depending on your age, general state of health, and quality aftercare. Dehydration, tobacco use, and undue stress can all increase your recovery time. It’s a good idea to plan to take a week or more off from work to allow you to rest while the incision heals.

If you are struggling with the appearance of facial skin aging in Clarksville, Tennessee, you should call 866.234.0470 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye.
