The Face Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to rejuvenate the lower portion of the face. We are lucky enough to live during a time where there are more options than ever before when it comes to facial rejuvenation, there are non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure options as well as surgical options that can create more natural looking results than we’ve seen in years past. Each facial rejuvenation procedure works differently by targeting different causes of those common signs of aging we all face. Not all lines, wrinkles, and creases are created equally—some are caused by repetitive facial movements, these are usually the first lines we see as we start to get older, and Botox is the easiest, most efficient way to address those types of lines. Lines and creases caused by a loss of volume can be addressed through Dermal Fillers, while skin sagging and fatty deposits around the eyes may be addressed through Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift). When there is more advanced signs of aging in the lower portion of the face and jowls, or skin sagging, the best method of rejuvenation is usually the Face Lift.
The Face Lift (technical terms: Rhytidectomy) is sometimes combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures like the Brow Lift, Botox, or Dermal Fillers to create a more comprehensive rejuvenation throughout the whole face.
