Facelift surgery addresses sagging tissue and loose skin to produce a firm, well-defined, and more youthful appearance. Through lifting underlying tissue, a firm and strong base is created for overlying skin, but issues impacting the skin itself are not always corrected. This means that a facelift, while exceptional at producing a firmer and more lifted look, is not designed to correct scars, wrinkles, or other topical imperfections.
One of the most effective ways to eliminate acne scars is skin resurfacing. This can be accomplished with lasers, chemical peels, intense pulsed light (IPL), and other nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments. Skin resurfacing can be completed following facelift surgery to correct topical issues and produce an optimally smooth and flawless result.
What Does a Facelift Do?
Facelift surgery is used to correct a number of issues that can combine to create an aged, tired, and unappealing look. The procedure is designed to:
- Eliminate double chin
- Redefine the jawline
- Lift droopy cheeks
- Reduce the depth of the fold between the nose and the mouth
- Smooth neckbands
Both the traditional and short-scar facelift techniques can be used to produce a firmer and more appealing appearance. Which option will prove ideal for your needs can be determined during your one-on-one consultation at the Nashua, NH or North Andover, MA office of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson.
Will a Facelift Make Me Look Younger?
Facelift surgery is capable of taking around 10 years off of your appearance. It will not make a 50-year-old look 18. There is significant benefit to this.
Natural-looking, believable results help ensure greater comfort and confidence. Made-up or overly done results often do the exact opposite. This is one more reason it makes sense to work with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon when looking into facelift surgery.
Dr. Chatson works to create both a natural and rejuvenated appearance through facelift surgery. Paying close attention to your desires and making adjustments to the procedure to meet your specific needs,- Dr. Chatson aims to produce results that help instill confidence for years to come.
