Sagging skin is a common issue people face as we age
Face lift helps Charlotte, NC residents who are struggling with sagging skin around the cheeks and neck. As we age, it’s not uncommon to start to notice the skin on your neck and face begin to get heavy and sag down. But, it can often make people look older than they are and leave them feeling self conscious.

A neck lift by Dr. Sean Freeman can help. Dr. Freeman has pioneered neck lift techniques and taught them to other surgeons across the globe. You can feel confident you’ll get results that look natural when you’re done.

First, you’ll need to schedule a consultation
Once you’ve decided to have a face lift with Dr. Freeman, you’ll need to have a consultation. During this meeting, you and Dr. Freeman will discuss what you hope to achieve with surgery. He’ll also examine your skin’s elasticity, texture, and thickness to determine which face lift technique will work best for you. Dr. Freeman will also examine your hairline to ensure he’ll be able to make incisions there.

During surgery, Dr. Freeman will lift the skin back to its natural position
With a deep plane face lift, Dr. Freeman will make small incisions along your hairline. Then, he’ll work to lift the face back into place. If necessary, Dr. Freeman will also remove excess skin if necessary.

You’ll need some time to recover at home
Once your face lift is complete, you’ll need to rest at home for a while after. You will experience bruising and swelling around the face and the incision areas, but this typically fades within a week or so.

You’ll need to be careful not to jostle the area following surgery. Since the incisions are made along the hairline, it is important to take care when brushing or washing your hair while the incisions heal. Dr. Freeman will go over recovery information with your prior to surgery, be sure to ask any questions you have then.
