Anyone who has looked in the mirror and noticed the telltale signs of aging understands how disheartening it can be. What makes aging so difficult is the fact that it seems like there is nothing that you can do to slow the aging process down. Watching your face age is especially difficult because your face is what identifies you. If your face looks tired, worn out or haggard, it can negatively affect your self-confidence. Fortunately, if you want to reverse the signs of the aging process, you have options. The facelift is one of the most commonly performed and effective cosmetic procedures available today.
What Can a Facelift Do for You?
Facelifts are designed to address specific problems associated with aging. These problems range from losing skin elasticity to developing jowls to the loss of the contour around your neck.
Modern facelift techniques are extremely sophisticated. They are designed to make you look years younger in a natural way. One thing that frightens people off from getting a facelift is that they don’t want to look like they’ve had work done. They do not want their face to look unnatural. Instead, they want to see a face that is their own, just more refreshed and revitalized. Thankfully, the facelift procedure is designed to do just that. When you choose Dr. Gilmer for this procedure, you won’t look unnatural; you will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
The Advantages of a Facelift Surgery
Possibly the biggest advantage that comes with this procedure is the skin and muscle tightening. Your facial muscles are what give your face its structure. When these muscles weaken and sag with age, they affect your entire appearance. During the procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon tightens and rearranges your underlying facial structure, giving you a more youthful and natural look. This also encourages your skin to maintain its youthful appearance longer.
When it comes to sagging skin, sometimes the only way to tighten it up is to remove the excess skin and literally tighten it up. Dr. Gilmer will work to find the right balance to leave you looking your best. If necessary, the procedure may also involve removing excess fat from the chin and neck to further enhance your results.
Facelift technology has come a long way. It can leave you looking better than you imagined.
