The face is one of the first places where age makes an appearance. And once it does, it may be difficult to know how to go about restoring the youthful appearance that accurately depicts how you feel on the inside. With so many options available today, you may question which is the best treatment for your unique concerns.
For many years, the surgical facelift has been the ultimate standard of care to correct facial aging. While non-surgical facial rejuvenation has a place in the spectrum of beauty maintenance, eventually something more definitive will be needed. One of the biggest reasons to consider a facelift from a reputable New Jersey plastic surgeon like Dr. D’Amico or Dr. Ferrauiola is because this customized procedure can address multiple problems at once. A few of them include:
Common Facelift Areas of Concern
The Drooping Jowl
One of the most revered signs of the youthful face is a sharp jaw line. With age, the angular contours are replaced with softening, and then with pockets of fat that hang from each side of the face. The correction of sagging jowls may just be one of the greatest advantages of the surgical facelift, which tightens the ligament along the jaw line to better support overlying tissue.
The Double Chin
In addition to volume accumulation at the jaw line, there is also a gathering of fat cells in the crease beneath the chin that occurs as the connective tissues of the face become more lax. More commonly called the “double chin”. The magic of the facelift is that it does more than remove extra fat; it also tightens the musculature structure of support to promote lasting sharpness of this angle and maintain a youthful appearance.
The Loss of Volume
It is interesting how facial aging occurs. We lose volume in the mid-face and notice that our cheeks are not as high and round as they used to be. The soft tissue and muscular support that is lost from the mid-face then seems to migrate to the jowls and the chin. Volume loss can, to some degree, be corrected with injectable solutions, however the goal is to not look bloated. The best method is to surgically bring these structures back to where they belong and then use fat injections to augment where fat has been lost and help the appearance of the skin. In combination, the redraping of superficial muscles and the addition of fat to specific locations achieves beautiful results.
