Sagging skin is common as people age

Face lift is one way Charlotte, NC residents can fight signs of aging such as loose, sagging skin in the neck and face. Sagging skin can leave you looking older than you and leave you feeling self conscious about your appearance. A face lift can alleviate these symptoms and give you a youthful look. But, only if it is performed correctly. 

Poor results can leave you feeling even more self conscious

Finding an experienced surgeon is vital to achieving the results you want. You’ve probably seen people who have a stretched, wind blown look after having had plastic surgery on their face. Finding an experienced surgeon is important to ensure you don’t get these results, instead of the results you want. 

If you end up with poor results, it can take a toll on your self esteem. You’ll need to wait until your body has fully healed before any kind of surgery to correct your results can be done. You’ll also need time to find an experienced surgeon perform the additional surgery. 

The surgeon will make incisions and lift the skin

When you have a face lift, your surgeon will first examine your face and neck. They’ll look at your skin’s thickness and where the most troublesome area is. They’ll then make their recommendation for the best face lift technique for you. 

When it’s time for surgery, the doctor will make incisions around the ear or among the hairline, depending on the type of face lift you’re having done. They will then work to life the face back to it’s original position. If not done correctly, this is where people can develop the windblown, over worked on look you see in movies and on many people. If excess fat is the problem, your surgeon will also remove this. 

Liquid face lifts are an option if you’re not ready for surgery

If you are younger, or you and your doctor decide a surgical face lift is not the best option for you, a liquid face lift may be the answer. This procedure uses injectables and fillers to smooth out wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. Certain injectables can help plump the skin and give it a firmer appearance. This could give you a more youthful look. While this isn’t a permanent treatment option, it is a good alternative for people who are not committed to surgery. Some people may also opt for this procedure to enhance their face lift if it has been years since their surgery.
