If you are unhappy with the signs of aging on your face, a facelift can be an effective solution.

As we age, the skin and muscle on our face lose their firmness and elasticity. Signs of aging often reveal themselves with sagging in the cheeks, increasing lines, deepening wrinkles and loose skin. A facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy, works to correct the change of position in the face’s anatomical structures. One of the most prominent signs of aging is sagging of the cheeks, which is caused by a descent of cheek fat. The “smile line,” known as the nasolabial fold, becomes deeper and more prominent.

A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place has a set of facelift techniques that aim to correct this and other signs of aging on the face and neck.
