Facelifts are one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures available, and they’ve been performed for decades. While you may have a general idea of what a facelift procedure is, the surgery itself is complex—requiring extreme precision and expertise.
Many of Dr. Lazarus’ facelift patients, typically between the ages of 40 and 60, have come to see him from across the region! He is well-regarded in Tennessee for his specialty, staying up-to-date on the latest techniques.
Reduced Creases and Wrinkles
Over time, it’s normal to experience a loss in collagen and elastin—proteins that provide your skin its thickness, elasticity and volume. Once your skin has thinned due to the loss of nutrients, it’s not as easy for it to “bounce back” and maintain its youthful appearance. As a result, natural facial expressions and everyday movements begin to leave lines and wrinkles behind.
Luckily, facelift surgery can tighten up areas of excess skin, further correcting deep facial creases. And if stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin is of interest to you, ask us about our skin care line, or other aesthetic procedures such as microneedling!
Tightened Skin and Facial Muscles
As we age, not only do we develop lines and wrinkles, but our skin begins to sag. Muscles weaken, too—and yes, this does include smaller facial muscles! You use the muscles in your face more than you realize, and the combination of time, gravity and other lifestyle factors take a toll on their strength.
A facelift can address anything from a slack jaw line to unwanted fat deposits on or around the face and neck. Skin and muscles that have been worn out over time make a huge impact on your appearance, so if you want to look younger than ever, this skin tightening procedure may be right for you!
A Younger-Looking Appearance
Overall, by removing sagging skin and tightening facial muscles, you can shed years off your appearance!
