As we age, gravity and chronic sun exposure take their toll, most notably on the face. The soft tissues in the middle of the face sag, leading to hollowing of the lower eyelids and sagging of the cheeks. Loose skin, deep folds or wrinkles, and a sagging jaw or neckline can all be improved with face lift surgery.
The procedure not only provides a younger-looking appearance, but will also boost your self-image, helping you feel more confident on the inside.
The best candidate for a face lift is a man or woman whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still maintains some elasticity.
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift may be a good choice if you want to rid yourself of loose skin and wrinkles on your forehead. The procedure can be ideal for people who have:
- Sagging eyebrows that may cause an angry or scowling appearance
- Heaviness in eyebrows (which may also limit your field of vision due to the low position of the brow that may cause upper eyelid skin to hang over the outer eye corners)
- Deep wrinkles, frown lines or creases across the forehead
- Deep furrows or a low/heavy brow due to prominent muscle activity or genetics
- Used BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport to smooth out forehead wrinkles but are now ready for a more permanent solution.
Like most people considering a brow lift, you’ve probably begun to notice deep horizontal lines on your forehead or deep furrows above the nose between the eyebrows, causing you to look as if you’re frowning, tired, or angry. This aging look of the upper face may be inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept it. A brow lift at Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery can restore a younger, more refreshed, alert appearance by minimizing forehead creases and repositioning a low, heavy brow.
Many people are very self-conscious about their neck’s appearance. An unattractive neck can result from a variety of conditions including being overweight, a genetic predisposition to having a significant amount of fat in the jaw, and age, which can cause skin to droop and make the jawline appear jowly. Some people suffer from a condition known as retrognathia, where the jaw recedes, making it seem as if they have no chin or jawline.
If you want to improve your neck and jawline’s appearance, neck lifts provide a comprehensive solution that can redefine the jaw’s angle, while improving your self-confidence. Neck lifts can reduce the appearance of loose, sagging skin and can even create the illusion of weight loss.
It is common to combine a neck lift with other procedures, especially a face lift, so that this area is also rejuvenated and the client is provided with a complete facial makeover. A neck lift is a combination of various procedures, but for some, a single procedure can improve the neck’s appearance.
