As our skin naturally ages, it begins to sag and lose elasticity. When this happens, it is very common for our self-confidence to diminish.  Faced with this inevitable situation, many people turn first to non-invasive solutions such as Botox® or other fillers. However, non-surgical treatments are not always enough.

A facelift procedure involves the surgical removal of excess facial skin, while the remaining skin is tightened and adjusted to give your face a more youthful appearance. Some benefits of a facelift include:

  • Increased self-confidence: Sagging, wrinkled facial skin can have a detrimental effect on the way you view yourself.  Often times, patients complain that they don’t recognize the person in the mirror anymore. A facelift can boost your self-confidence by eliminating unwanted wrinkles, lines and crow’s feet.
  • Improved facial profile: There are several techniques in a facelift procedure that can improve the shape of your profile, by creating more defined contours in your facial structure.
  • Take 10 years off your appearance: Facelifts make you look several years younger by removing wrinkles, tightening facial skin and rejuvenating the appearance of your face.

Often times, additional procedures such as an eyelid lift can positively compliment and enhance the results of your facelift surgery. Facelifts are not ideal solutions for everyone, so it is important to first consult with Dr. Chiaramonte, to discuss your candidacy for the procedure.
