The Facelift procedure is performed to lift and tighten the lower portion of the face (from the cheekbones to the neck) and reverse more significant signs of aging than less invasive methods can correct. The idea facelift results look natural and the goal is never to look like someone else. In some cases laser resurfacing and volume replacement procedures are paired with the facelift to also address issues of skin texture and volume loss (which can create that sunken-in appearance).
The facelift procedure can remove excess, sagging skin to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Shaw today.
