Everyone’s face ages, and gravity, lifestyle, hormones and biological changes all have an impact on the skin, tissue and facial structure. Skin care and facial cosmetic treatments can help slow the aging process, but eventually, lines, wrinkles, sagging and other facial aging will occur. Facelift surgery addresses the visible signs of aging in the lower face, including jowling, smiles lines and excess skin. Dr. Christine Blaine at Blaine Plastic Surgery offers various types of facelift surgery that can help you look ten or more years younger at our multiple clinic locations in New York.
Drooping skin and tissue below the upper cheeks creates heavier jowls, lines, wrinkles and sagging around the jawline. A facelift removes excess skin and elevates the existing skin and tissue to a more youthful position. When completed using advanced techniques, a facelift should look natural, like a younger version of yourself. Dr. Blaine’s extensive experience and surgical skills can rejuvenate the lower face with a natural-appearing facelift to turn back the hands of time on your face.
Benefits of a Rhytidectomy
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is considered the most effective procedure for facial rejuvenation. While Botox® and facial fillers can offer temporary anti-aging effects, they cannot remove excess, sagging skin or reposition drooping jowls. With a facelift, the lower face can appear firmer and youthful, offering some of the following benefits:
- Smooth creases or smile lines on the nasolabial fold
- Elevate sagging fat, tissue or skin in the mid to lower face
- Tighten the skin and tissue for better chin/jawline definition
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of a double chin
Facelift surgery uses incisions near the ear and hairline to access the lower face and make the necessary surgical changes. Dr. Blaine offers various facelift techniques to address different stages of aging. The type of rhytidectomy that is recommended or performed depends on the level of laxity in the skin and tissue and individual differences between each patient.
If you want to slow the aging process and retain a more youthful appearance, contact us at Blaine Plastic Surgery to discuss facelift procedures or to schedule a consultation at our Huntington, NYC or Staten Island locations.
