i-look-incredibahPatients who come to my office asking about a facelift typically do so because they are unhappy with the way they look. These patients feel they look much older than they actually are or feel. My patients want skin that is fresher and younger looking. One of the most common signs of aging is loose skin under the chin causing an undesirable double chin. Additionally, concerns of deep wrinkles, frown lines, creases alongside the nasal folds, and loose skin are popular areas with which my patients are concerned. The cause of these problems is typically a loss of collagen, which gradually occurs throughout the aging process.

My patients want to regain a youthful appearance, and they come to me to find out if they can achieve this with a facelift or if alternative cosmetic procedures can do the same thing. A facelift can provide dramatic results, and these can last much longer than cosmetic procedures. Dermal fillers, skin treatments, muscle relaxant injections, and other cosmetic procedures often need to be repeated after a few months, whereas a facelift provides more permanent results and can often take years off a patient’s appearance.
