Address Early Signs of Aging & Gain Youthful Contour With a Facelift Performed Near Palm Harbor, FL
A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can address many common signs of aging. In addition to smoothing and tightening the facial skin, a skilled surgeon can artfully reposition facial fat and muscle to “plump up” the face and restore some youthful contour. Of course, while a facelift can effectively “turn back the clock” a bit for certain individuals, it cannot halt the natural aging process – nothing can.
If you’re interested in a facelift, you can discuss your surgical goals with Dr. John Roach of Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery near Palm Harbor, Florida. As an experienced, double board certified plastic and general surgeon, Dr. Roach can provide valuable advice to help you decide if a facelift is right for you. He’ll begin by asking what you would like to change about your face and why. To help you articulate your ideas, Dr. Roach may show you some before and after photos of patients he’s treated.
What Appearance-Related Issues Can Be Addressed With a Facelift?
A facelift may be appropriate for you if you’d like to address:
- Sagging facial skin
- Hollow cheeks
- Hanging skin at your lower jawline (jowls)
- Deep skin folds that extend from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
- Loose skin and excess fat in your neck (if your treatment plan includes a neck lift)
In general, a facelift may produce a good result for you if you’d like to target mild to moderate signs of aging and have a well-defined facial bone structure and a sufficient amount of skin elasticity. Your age is not the only – or even the most important – factor to consider. Instead, Dr. Roach will fully assess your medical history, overall health, and lifestyle factors, such as tobacco use, which can affect your facelift recovery. Before making a final recommendation, Dr. Roach will carefully evaluate your expectations to ensure they are realistic. Additionally, he may conclude that your goals can be achieved with nonsurgical facial rejuvenation techniques, such as dermal fillers or botulinum injectables. If so, he will fully explain your options.
