Visible signs of aging occur due to loss of skin elasticity as a result of the natural aging process, sun damage as well as other factors such as heredity, smoking, good skin care, and weight fluctuation. This can create jowls, deep nasolabial folds, volume loss, wrinkles, frown lines, and sagging tissues and skin.
A facelift can help to reverse some of these changes by tightening the underlying facial support system in the face and reduce lines and wrinkles, remove excess skin and restore a more youthful appearance. This is often combined with a necklift to also improve contour of the jowls as well as the chin and neck areas.
Dr. Wang performs a tumescent facelift technique which utilizes fluid to aid in hydrodissecting the tissue planes of the face. The fluid contains anesthetic and vasoconstrictors that are infiltrated beneath the skin to minimize postoperative pain, bleeding and bruising.
Patients may choose to combine their facelift with other rejuvenative procedures such as autologous fat grafting to help restore volume to needed areas of the aging face, eyelid lift, brow lift, or laser resurfacing of skin around the eyes for a more refreshed and rested look.
These procedures are combined with a preoperative and postoperative skin care regimen and vitamins that aid in rapid recovery. Schedule your consultation today to find out which procedures are most appropriate for your goals.
