As we age we lose both volume and elasticity in our face. Our cheeks begin to appear hollow and the skin tends to sag and collect on the jawline and neck. Most patients experiencing the facial changes of aging don’t necessarily want to look 20 years younger, but would like to achieve a more refreshed and rejuvenated version of their current self. Does this sound familiar? If so, then you will be happy to know that modern day technology provides us with a multitude ways to rejuvenate your face. Your options can range from laser resurfacing to fat grafting to a mini or full face and neck lift. Done properly, these procedures will not make you appear to be a different person, but will result in a younger and more refreshed version of yourself.
Do Your Research:
Determine what results you want to see from your facial rejuvenation procedure in order to figure out what procedure would be best for you. Dr. Song, with Song Plastic Surgery, offers multiple options that can help you achieve the look you desire. These procedures include the following:
- Traditional Face and Necklift: This procedure allows Dr. Song to hide an incision in the contours of the ear and hairline, whereby he is able to resuspend and volumize the sagging cheeks and jowls. The bands in the neck are removed, and a nice, tight angle of the neck is restored. After this step, Dr. Song will remove the excess skin without creating unnatural tension lines in the cheek, which will result in a beautiful and smooth jawline. After the contouring has been completed, Dr. Song will inject fat into the cheeks and folds to restore the youthful curves and fullness of the mid-portion of the face. Because this is a more invasive procedure, typical recovery time is approximately two weeks.
- Laser Face and Neck Lifts: Laser technologies can be used to remove fat and resurface the neck and jawline. This results in a trimmer, smoother jawline and neck without the stitches (in fact, this procedure can be done with just local anesthesia).
- Liposuction: Dr. Song can utilize liposuction procedures to remove fatty areas from the neck and jawline, which can help create a more contoured and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This can be done in conjunction with a traditional facelift or laser facelift.
