If gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of life have left creases and wrinkles on your face, you may be a good candidate for a facelift. The facelift procedure has successfully turned back the hands of time for millions of men and women, removing excess fat, tightening facial muscles, and repositioning facial skin for a more youthful and rested appearance.

Understanding the Facelift
The facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces visible signs of aging in the face and neck, including:
- Midface sagging
- Deep creases called 'smile lines' around the mouth
- Creases below the lower eyelids
- Displaced or fallen fat
- Jowls created by lax lower face muscle tone
- Double chin appearance due to loose skin or excess fat under the chin and jaw
Who Should Consider a Facelift?
While a facelift cannot change your personality or stop the aging process, it is a truly remarkable means of restoring and rejuvenating your looks and increasing your self-confidence.
The best candidates are physically healthy non-smokers with a positive outlook and reasonable surgical expectations.
