The face is one of the first places on the body to show signs of aging. The thin layer of fat beneath the facial skin can begin to decrease, meaning the muscles work closer to the surface of the skin, which creates deeper-looking expression lines. Decreased collagen and elastin can cause facial skin to sag or droop, creating loose skin, particularly around the middle of the face or along the jaws, which can lead to jowls. Fatty deposits can develop under the face to create a double chin, even in those with healthy weight. Dr. Kerendian of Los Angeles can use a facelift to address many of these issues and transform your appearance.
Facial aging is a natural process, but the youthful contours of your face can be affected by many factors, including stress, heredity, gravity, environmental factors, and lifestyle factors. A facelift will not change your natural appearance or facial features or stop the aging process, but it can offer you a comprehensive approach to manage wrinkles, sagging, and many of the unwanted effects of time. It can be performed alone or along with a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or skin rejuvenation procedures.
Dr. Kerendian might recommend a facelift for patients who:
• Feel their faces do not reflect their youthful natures
• Have excess sagging skin
• No longer look like themselves thanks to heredity, sun exposure, or time
• Have deep creases from their noses to their mouths
• Have decreased or displaced facial fat
• Lost muscle tone or jowls
• Have a double chin due to excess fatty deposits or loose skin
• Have creased or sagging neck skin
• Are in good health and have realistic expectations
The procedure can address multiple issues at once, and can roll back the hands of time a decade or more. It will not create a new version of you, but a more youthful version of yourself. Although there can be some downtime involved, the procedure offers better contouring than any other technique with results that can last ten years or longer.
