If you’ve decided to get a facelift, congratulations! This decision could completely change your life in more ways than one. When performed by a skilled and experienced professional – like Dr. Kenneth Sumida – a facelift is just a boost for your skin and the contouring lines of your face. It simply makes the real you look even better! There are lots of things to look forward to if you’ve decided to get this procedure for yourself.
The Problems That Getting a Facelift Can Address
Facelifts address specific issues that many people come up against with their faces as they age. By addressing the following common issues, your face becomes smoother, more graceful and less haggard:
- Loss of contours on the chin and neck
- Largely creased areas around your nose and at your mouth corners
- Loss of elasticity in the skin
- Lack of muscle tone in the neck and face
- The common appearance of jowls on the chin line near each corner of the mouth
The Amazing Benefits of Getting a Facelift
Improves facial contours
Your goal for a facelift is smoother looking skin, so during the procedure, Dr. Sumida can contour and resurface each angle of your face. Of course, this is always done in a subtle and natural way. We don’t want you looking different than you normally do. You just want to look like the best version of yourself.
Tightens facial muscles
As we get older, the underlying muscles in the skin simply droop due to gravity and age. As they get weaker, the structure of the face tends to sag overall. During a facelift, we can tighten these muscles to give you a younger, smoother looking face.
Takes care of loose skin
If you have loose or excess skin on your face, a facelift takes care of this for you. The extra skin will be carefully trimmed away or tucked for a smooth and natural look. In some cases, people who have extra fat beneath the skin that they would like to get rid of can have a subtle amount of liposuction performed as well.
