Facelift Can Refresh Your Facial Appearance
Facelift surgery breathes new life into your aging skin and helps you conserve the natural structure of your facial features. Our plastic surgeons in St. Louis & St. Peters can help you maintain the contours of your facial features with a facelift. As we become older, our facial skin can begin to sag, and this can add years to your appearance. A facelift can help you look younger and more refreshed, while keeping the integrity of your natural facial contours.
Your Customized Facelift Procedure
A facelift involves tightening the facial and neck muscles and removing excess skin. Designed to treat sagging cheeks, remove fat folds around the neck and eliminate jowls, a facelift at Renaissance Plastic Surgery of St. Loius will create smoother and more defined facial contours. As a result, your facial muscles should be tighter and unsightly features such as a double chin or loose, sagging skin will be eliminated.
Your facelift procedure will begin with incisions, made around the ears, that will be extended into the hairline. The tissue and muscle in your face are repositioned and excess fat and tissue is removed. Deep layers of tissue are secured in place with internal sutures, and the skin is stretched into place. Bandages will be applied to the treatment area after the surgery, and tubes may be inserted to allow excess fluid to drain from the incisions.
Time Doesn’t Wait, and Neither Should You
Dr. Boschert, Dr. Craig, and Dr. Mills are experts in facial contouring as well as other facial procedures such as rhinoplasty surgery, brow lift surgery or liposuction, which can be performed in conjunction with your facelift. You may not even require a full facelift and instead may require only a mini facelift.
Because facelifts do not improve your skin’s tone or texture, we recommend utilizing our non-invasive aesthetic skin care treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, to address these concerns. Either way, our physicians apply their extensive experience and advanced surgical skill to your unique situation in order to deliver outstanding aesthetic results.
