As we age, we start to notice changes in the face as gravity pulls us down. The jawline softens and we frequently develop jowls. And while the lower part of the face gets fuller, we lose volume in the upper face, developing sunken cheeks, hollow eyes and deep creases around the mouth. Facelift, clinically known as rhytidectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the shape and firmness of the face
In the past, plastic surgeons believed that neck rejuvenation could not be achieved without a full facelift. Fortunately, this is no longer the case! It is entirely possible to improve the area under the chin, down the front of the neck and along the border of the jaw, with minimal incisions as a stand-alone surgical procedure.
The aging process can leave you looking tired and/or angry even when you are the most joyous. Over time, the loss of elasticity in the skin and the effects of gravity can cause the eyebrows to droop. This can make the eyes appear sunken and others may comment that you look upset or worried very often. You may feel youthful on the inside and you want that to be reflected to everyone you encounter face-to-face.
Known to plastic surgeons as blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift is a brief yet beneficial operation that can brighten your look and improve your vision. Droopy eyelids are caused by a loss of skin elasticity as we age, or they may be the result of certain genetic factors. In either case, excess skin around the eyes distorts our appearance, creating tension between how we really feel and the grumpy, drowsy look we are unintentionally projecting.
