As we start to age, facial skin starts to lose its elasticity and firmness, making our appearance look tired. If you are finding your appearance troubling due to sagging skin, deep creases on your face, or wrinkles, you may want to consider a facelift by Dr. Wisnicki, the Facelift Surgeon at Advanced Cosmetic Center in West Palm Beach.

A facelift (also known as Rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure that helps to rectify the visible signs of aging by tightening up loose skin on the face. Additionally, the procedure can combat fat found under the chin by removing the double chin and making your neck appear more toned.

How a facelift works:

Rhytidectomy is a procedure done by the plastic surgeon.  The surgery is performed under local anesthesia to  anesthetized areas of the neck and face that are to be operated on. The procedure involves making incisions along the ears and hairline, and may extend around the scalp area. Depending on the procedure, Dr. Wisnicki may remove extra fat deposits while using a combination of techniques to tighten your facial skin by targeting underlying muscle tissue.

Finally, the surgery is completed with specialized stitches under the skin to reduce scarring. Scarring from a facelift is generally well concealed due to the use of incisions made along the hairline

Is a facelift right for you?

If you have noticed some of the following changes recently in your face, you may be a good candidate for a facelift:

  •       Loose, saggin skin
  •       Deepened skin wrinkles
  •       Wrinkles below the eyelids
  •       Loss of muscle tone in the face
  •       Excess fat deposits under the jaw and chin.

Choosing the right surgeon

When deciding to undergo a facelift procedure, you need to gather important information regarding the surgeon who will be operating on you as well as on the procedure. Choosing the right surgeon is just as important as choosing if the facelift procedure is right for you.
