Why a Facelift Is Still the Best Way to Dial Back the Years

Why a Facelift Is Still the Best Way to Dial Back the Years

You watch as the skin on your face begins to wrinkle and sag, and your youthful spirit isn’t ready for this outward aging process. While laser technologies that rejuvenate skin can help temporarily, a single facelift can provide you with anti-aging results that go the distance.

At Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Trent Fogleman is an expert in the field of facelifts, and he’s helped many of our patients hit the reset button on aging skin. 

There are many good reasons why facelifts rank No. 3 in cosmetic procedures in the United States (behind nose jobs and eyelid surgery) and we review them here. 

The best way to tighten your skin

During a facelift procedure, Dr. Fogleman tightens your skin by pulling it taut and removing excess tissue. In other words, we’re not trying to rejuvenate existing aging skin — we’re removing some of the loose skin and tightening the rest to eliminate wrinkles and sagging.

Shoring up the support in your skin

Another reason why facelifts are so effective is that they don't just address aging skin, but the support tissues, as well. As you age, muscles in your face become weaker and can shift and fail to support your skin adequately.

During a facelift, Dr. Fogleman often repositions and tightens these muscles to improve the support in your skin.

Repositioning fat

Another problem that comes with aging is that the thin layer of fat that once provided youthful fullness to your face begins to migrate and disappear. During your facelift, Dr. Fogleman can reposition the fat and fill in hollowed-out areas for a more youthful appearance.

Tailored to your needs

No two facelifts are alike, and Dr. Fogleman reviews each case carefully to find the best path forward to meet your anti-aging goals. For example, if most of the aging processes are occurring in the lower half of your face, Dr. Fogleman can perform a mini facelift to tighten the tissues along your jawline and in your jowls.

Or, perhaps you might benefit best from a combination of a mini facelift and eyelid surgery to tackle both the upper and lower halves of your face.

As well, Dr. Fogleman can tighten loose skin below your face with a neck lift procedure.

Whatever your wishes, Dr. Fogelman can tailor your facelift to meet them.

Long-lasting results

With a facelift procedure, we hit the reset button on your aging skin, sending you back in time by a decade or more. While your skin still continues to age after your facelift, we’ve moved back the starting point considerably.
