As you age, your skin naturally slows the process of exfoliation and collagen replenishment in the dermis. This causes your skin to lose elasticity. This can cause fine lines and wrinkles as well as sagging in the skin of your face and neck.
To address these problem areas and restore your youthful appearance, Dr. Franco, Dr. Price, or Dr. Havard might recommend a facelift.
The facelift portion of the procedure is designed to tighten sagging in the middle of your face and deep creases below the lower eyelids as well as the nose and mouth. Improving skin tension also helps improve skin tone and texture in the lower face. This might also improve loose skin or excess fatty deposits under your chin.
The neck lift is designed to remove excess skin from key locations in the neck to tighten sagging skin. Having it performed in conjunction with a facelift allows you to improve both areas in a single session.
Your recovery time after the facelift will vary depending on your age, general state of health and quality aftercare. Keep in mind that tobacco use can have a negative effect on skin health and recovery.
If you live in the Irving, Mesquite, and Ennis TX, area and you’re struggling with significant aging skin on your face and neck, you should call 972-594-7414 to set up a consultation.
