A facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed to transfer the skin and deeper soft tissues of the face and neck into a more elevated, youthful position. This goal is accomplished by gaining broad access to the undersurface of the skin of the face and neck from incisions that are strategically placed to remove the excess skin and hide the scars in locations that are generally well concealed. The skin is freed from underlying attachments in the cheek area, the jaw-line and the neck so that it can be lifted and repositioned in a manner that restores a firm, more youthful, refreshed look.
A good candidate for a facelift will have the following circumstances:
- Good physical and psychological health
- Excess skin of the face and/or neck due to heredity, aging, or loss of elasticity
- A desire to rejuvenate the aged appearance of the face and neck
- Realistic expectations
If these circumstances apply to you, it is likely that you are a good candidate for a facelift. We hope you will contact us at Bowers Plastic Surgery by calling 336-907-7980 or Contact Us to arrange a consultation with Dr. David Bowers.
