When you look in the mirror and start to see wrinkles and creases in your face and neck becoming more and more visible, that’s when you know the glorious days of your youth are behind you. This happens because collagen and elastin proteins form at a slower rate over time, which makes the skin less malleable and more likely to sag. Rather than helplessly suffer from the rigors of aging, fight back with the help of a facelift.
A facelift can be used to get rid of extra fatty deposits, loose muscle, and excess skin in the neck and the mid and lower face, leaving you with a rejuvenated and youthful look. To begin a traditional facelift procedure, your plastic surgeon will create an incision along your hairline, stretching from ear to ear. This incision will travel down the area in front of the ear and then curve around to the area below the ear and behind it (the lower scalp).
Facelift techniques are tailored to meet the patient’s needs and offer a wide range of solutions. If you are interested in a facelift by our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Gene Sloan, and would like a confidential consultation, contact us at our Little Rock, Arkansas, plastic surgery office today.
