Correcting saggy, drooping skin on the lower half of the face is not always easy. Some of the abrasive methods used today help decrease the amount of visual wrinkles but do nothing to actually firm the skin. Some adults experience a buildup of fat below the skin that they wish to have removed.
A facelift is a popular treatment procedure that helps smooth the skin surface. It usually involves stretching the skin to smooth out features, as well as reduce sagging and wrinkling. It can sound a bit frightening, but this procedure is actually rather simple. It can help restore your face to its more youthful appearance, and the results can last for many years.
Candidates for a Facelift
The ideal candidate would be someone who is experiencing drooping skin on the cheeks, heavy wrinkling or skin folding, and a buildup of excess tissue beneath the skin along the jawline. These problems generally result in excessive folding and shadowing, making the individual look tired.
How It’s Performed
Before treatment a general anesthetic will be used. During the treatment, excess fat can be removed, muscle tissue can be slightly repositioned if necessary, and the skin is gently stretched to form a smoother surface. This procedure can be done in the comfort of our office in Nashville. A facelift is performed as an outpatient procedure, so you can return home to rest and recover after your procedure.
Recovery After a Facelift
We will give the client bandages to wear. The bandages must be changed daily. The results of the procedure are immediately noticeable, and most clients report satisfactory results lasting for years to come. This makes a facelift an agreeable alternative to skin rejuvenation methods requiring ongoing treatment or repeated visits to a clinic.
