Facelift in Kalamazoo at Parkway Plastic Surgery
If you’re feeling unhappy with the signs of aging in your face and neck, a facelift may be right for you. Facelifts work by reversing effects of aging, gravity, sun damage, and more on the face and neck creating a much more firm, youthful appearance.
Facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As you age, the skin and muscles of the facial region begin to lose tone and sag. A facelift cannot stop the aging process, but it can improve the most visible signs of aging by tightening deeper structures, redraping and tightening of the skin of the face and neck and removing selected areas of fatty fullness.
A facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as brow lift, liposuction, or eyelid surgery. Facelift surgery is individualized for each patient with the best candidates having skin with good elasticity and bone structure that is well-defined. Evaluation of both individual skin character and the anticipated goals allow for a plan of surgical treatment to be performed for each individual patient.
