Men and women alike seek ways to reverse signs of aging on their facial structure. From fine lines and wrinkles, to sagging skin, these tell-tale signs are often undesired features that many try to correct. In order to treat these characteristics, you may wish to visit with a facelift surgeon in Orange County.
How is facelift surgery performed?
In order to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and creases, a facelift (“rhytidectomy”) targets the upper half of the facial structure. This procedure entails incisions along the natural hairline and around the ears, which helps hide scarring post-surgery. Your surgeon will then reposition the skin, and underlying tissues and muscles to a more youthful position. Excess skin is then trimmed away to reveal a smoother contour.
For those with minimal signs of aging, endoscopic facelift surgery may be a better option. This technique only requires a few small incisions in which special surgical instruments are used to provide a younger-looking appearance.
In addition, patients who would like to correct sagging in the neck and jowl area may wish to learn more regarding a mini-facelift or neck lift surgery. These are often combined with traditional facelift surgery. However, if you are unsure about undergoing a surgical procedure, you may be interested in non-invasive rejuvenating procedure such as skin resurfacing, injectable, fillers, and/or laser treatments. Your surgeon can provide more information regarding these procedures.
