My Note: I had the procedure discussed below a year ago November. This was the best investment I ever made in myself and I highly recommend Dr. Mardirossian - an expert surgeon and friend. My neck will never look like the photo below, but I believe I did take years (maybe 15) off. As I see photos of my high school class mates on Facebook, I see such a difference. 50th Reunion, here I come; But that will be a story for later. Yes Class of '66 - you do the math.
How a Neck or Facelift can Take 15 Years off your Face
BY: Vartan Mardirossian, MD
Before being willing to commit to having a face lift or neck lift procedure performed, most patients want to be reassured that it will indeed make them look younger. The good news is that having either (or even both, if you are feeling truly adventurous) of these procedures carried out will make you look younger in a number of ways.
Reduce Sagging Skin
Although many patients go to great lengths to look after the skin on their faces, their necks are often neglected. This can result in the development of deep creases and sagging of the skin. These problems can be addressed and rectified by means of a lower face lift procedure because it helps to create a more contoured look on the face. If this procedure is performed when the first signs of creases and sagging occur, it can prevent you from having to have additional surgery performed on the neck area.
Rejuvenate your Eyes
As you age, deep creases develop around and under your eyes, which can not only cause you to look older than you really are; they will result in you looking tired permanently as well, even when you aren’t. Having a face lift carried out will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and even deeper creases around your eyes and rejuvenate their overall appearance. If this alone is not sufficient, a blepharoplasty procedure can help by removing excess skin and/or fat from around the eyes, while dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well.
Eliminate Forehead Wrinkles
Excessive sun exposure, furrowing of the brow and frowning – or a combination of all of these – can result in the development of deep lines and wrinkles on your forehead. However, these conditions can easily be remedied by means of a face lift and/or a brow lift procedure. The variation of treatments used during these procedures not only enables you to look many years younger; they are now performed in such a way that they will look as natural as possible as well.
As you age, your body produces less of the collagen that is required to retain its natural elasticity, which can cause your cheeks and chin area to sag noticeably. A face lift and/or a neck lift procedure will help remove the excess sagging skin and create a more defined look in the chin and neck area as well – just think, you will be able to wave a final goodbye to your double chin and even your sagging jowls after having this surgery performed!
Although face lift and neck lift procedures are performed regularly by plastic surgeons, it is imperative that you schedule a one on one consultation with one who is reputable before going under the knife. This will enable him or her to provide you with a completely customized plan of action that will leave you looking more youthful than you have looked in many years.
