Using the facelift to achieve a youthful appearance

At the practice of Dr. Joseph C. Berardi, Scottsdale, AZ area patients can achieve dramatic restoration of their youthful appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeon provides body and facial procedures for men and women, and for those seeking restoration of the face, the facelift surgery continues to be the most popular. 

What is a facelift? 

As we age, our skin is exposed to the elements and changes occurring in our lives. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, along with years of stress, can contribute to an aged appearance on the face. The natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin also results in skin laxity that contributes to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds throughout the face. To combat this, patients may wonder if the facelift procedure is appropriate for their needs. 

The facelift is a cosmetic treatment used to lift the skin and smooth away lines and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance.  While the aging process cannot be reversed, the results from a facelift can allow a patient to improve the signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful look. It is sometimes done alongside other facial procedures to provide a more dramatic result, including forehead lifts or blepharoplasty. When performed by a skilled surgeon, the results are natural-looking and noticeable! 

Who is a candidate for the facelift procedure? 

The ideal candidates for facelift surgeries are men and women in good overall health with sagging of the facial skin. These patients might also have developed jowls or banding in the neck area, which can also be resolved during the surgery. Patients should have realistic expectations and should fully understand the risks associated with this and all types of surgeries.
