The facelift, also known as the rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the signs of aging on the face. Each patient has their own set of concerns and problem areas, so it is important to consider the goals of your facelift and know the limitations.
There are various techniques for facelift procedures. Depending on what problem areas affect you, facelifts can alleviate:
-Sagging in the mid-face around the cheeks and mouth
-Deep creases or wrinkling below the lower eyelids
-Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
-Fat that has fallen or is displaced
-Sagging in the cheeks, also known as ptosis of the nasolabial folds
-Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin in the appearance of a double chin
An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Stanley Okoro will be able to make the appropriate recommendations on which technique will help you acheive the best results.
