Facelift Houston

Face Lift - Downey Plastic SurgeryWhile aging is inevitable, there are ways to smooth out the aging lines on your neck and the lower part of your face. A surgical treatment, the facelift procedure, is a successful solution through the means of the technology called rhytidectomy. To accomplish these results, your skin and tissue is tightened to accomplish making your skin look smoother, less sagging, and less wrinkled in appearance.

The following are some of the age related changes that are commonly corrected by facelift surgery:

  • Jowls caused by lost muscle tone in the lower face
  • Deep laugh lines created between the corners of the mouth and jaw
  • Sagging skin in the mid-lower face
  • Fat which has moved from its original location
  • Accumulated loose skin and fatty deposits in the jaw and under the chin. These creates a double chin even in people who are not overweight

Other procedures often performed together with the facelift to complete the rejuvenation of the face and the neck are eyelid surgery, which lessens the aging signs around the eyes, brow lift procedure, which minimizes the appearance of a creased and sagging brow and fat grafting to augment areas devoid of tissue.

The Limits of a Facelift Procedure

It is important to realize that facelift surgery has its limits and is not intended to stop the natural aging of the face and neck. Also, it is a rejuvenation process that cannot alter the basic appearance of the face. It is only intended to help make small improvements to your appearance as you request.

Is This Procedure Right For Me?

A facelift is one of many other procedures that rejuvenate the skin. However, the main difference is that a facelift is a surgical procedure. There are other non-surgical procedures that help bring back youth to the face and although the results they achieve are not the same, they can help minimize the signs of aging and may be used to complement a face lift. Remember, you should have the procedure done for your own reasons and for yourself alone, not to fit into a particular image or for the wishes of another person. If you have any concerns or more questions about the facelift, speak to Dr. Downey in the Houston office.
