A facelift allows plastic surgeons to carefully and precisely address cosmetic concerns while maintaining a natural, youthful look. Your facial profile is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds develop and detract from your appearance. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer facelift in Atlanta for patients looking to reduce the prominence of facial aging.
What Is A Facelift?
More than any other body part, your face is the gateway for everyone you meet. Your facial profile reveals a lot of personal information about you, reflecting your age, heritage, and personality. It is understandable that you want your face to mirror how young you feel on the inside, but too often this is not the case.
As you age, your face loses volume and elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, sagging cheeks, jowls, folds that appear around the neck, and deep creases that form between your nose and mouth. Besides the natural aging process, stress, sun damage, gravity, environmental factors, and even genetics can accentuate the effects of facial aging. Fortunately, thanks to modern technology and advanced surgical techniques, there are many facelift options available today that can restore youthfulness and balance to your facial profile.
Regardless of how careful you are throughout your life, your face registers the stresses of day-to-day living, and although a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can significantly reduce the signs of aging. It is important to know that a facelift is not designed to change the look of your face or its features. Instead, it can diminish the effects of the passing years for a more refreshed and younger-looking appearance. While injectable fillers can help to reverse the early signs of facial aging, for more advanced signs and for longer-lasting results, a facelift may be a better choice.
A facelift can be combined with additional facial plastic surgery procedures, including a brow lift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery to further accentuate your facial profile. In the past, most facelift procedures were essentially the same, but today with the many different variations, our Atlanta facelift surgeons will customize your procedure to meet your individual goals.
What Are The Benefits Of A Facelift?
Facelift in Atlanta can address many of the physical transformations that change your appearance as you age. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer numerous facelift techniques that can have a dramatic effect on your jawline, midface, and neck.
Facelift, or rhytidectomy, is designed to restore a more youthful appearance by tightening and lifting the deep tissues of your face to enhance your facial contours. “Rhytid” means wrinkle, and “ectomy” means removal. A facelift removes excess skin and fat, while also re-draping the skin of your face and neck. Facelift surgery also tightens and repositions the underlying muscles and deep connective tissues (known as the subcutaneous muscular aponeurotic system—SMAS) and the platysma neck muscle.
