During the aging process, the skin becomes less elastic, and begins to lose the tightness necessary to prevent wrinkles and lines, especially on the face. Sagging skin around the jaw line or loose skin on the neck can become particularly noticeable and unflattering. In such circumstances, the FACEology LIFT, can dramatically tighten and smooth the skin and improve the patient’s appearance.
While other procedures can correct surface wrinkles, only a FACEology LIFT can tighten sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin. The FACEology LIFT reshapes the lower face, while additional procedures such as eyelid surgery and a brow lift addresses the eyes and forehead.
Men and women alike (generally aged 40 or older) are seeking the FACEology LIFT to reverse the signs of aging. While this procedure will improve appearances, it’s important for patient’s considering a FACEology LIFT to have realistic expectations about the surgery, understand what is involved, the recovery process and how one will look afterward.
Why Have A FACEology LIFT?
While genetics plays a role in aging – one that cannot be changed – lifestyle factors also influence how skin will look in the future. These include:
- Prolonged and over exposure to the sun
- Air pollutants
- Rapid weight loss
- Constant stress
A lifetime of exposure to sun, stress, gravity and other factors take their toll on a person’s face and skin. The skin on the face loses laxity and is less able to retain moisture. At the same time, the layer of fat that supports the skin becomes thinner, causing a sunken and tired appearance.
As a result, the skin develops sags and folds that contribute to premature aging. Around the jaw, skin droops into jowls and double chins. Skin on the neck may fold and become looser as well. The FACEology LIFT is a procedure under local anesthesia that removes these wrinkles, along with fat deposits from the face, jaw and neck so patients can look and feel their best.
The FACEology LIFT:
- Removes and tightens loose skin
- Removes the sag of the cheeks around the jaw line
- Lifts the corners of the mouth
- Reduces creases between the cheeks and lips
The end result is a smoother, rejuvenated appearance, which restores youthfulness to the face. Because a FACEology LIFT addresses the underlying structure of the face, the results are long-lasting, usually up to 10 years.
Liposuction, used to remove deposits of fat, often in the area between the chin and neck, can be done at the same time to enhance the results of the FACEology LIFT.
