Every moment of every day, you continuously age. As you get older, time and gravity slowly wreak havoc on your skin. The constant pulling that occurs as you age leads to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. It is an inevitable outcome, and you have finally reached a point where you need to take a step to restore the youthful look you once had. A facelift may be just what you’ve been looking for to address the signs of aging on your face.
Finding a Surgeon
When it comes to a facelift to address the signs of aging, you want to be sure to work with a surgeon who has a great deal of experience performing this procedure. While working with a newer surgeon is okay, a seasoned plastic surgeon like Dr. Hartog will have more experience knowing how to get the most out of a facelift procedure. Plus, our plastic surgeon will be able to show you before and after pictures of his work. This will give you an opportunity to see firsthand why he is the go-to surgeon in the area.
The details of each facelift procedure vary depending on multiple factors. During the procedure, our surgeon may tighten up your facial muscles and adjust the connective tissue. If necessary, he can even remove excess fat and eliminate some of your excess skin. Strategically tightening the remaining skin will help to make the face appear much more youthful.
Since a facelift is a surgical procedure, there will be some downtime. You may feel tempted to rush back into your daily routine, but as a general rule of thumb, this is not recommended. You should take advantage of your recovery time to let everything heal properly. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come.
