The sun and wind in West Palm Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas can wreak havoc on the facial and neck skin. Over many years, the skin becomes brittle and begins to sag. Creases and folds can seriously detract from a person’s appearance. Adults over the age of 40 often find that most of the cosmetic treatments for wrinkled skin don’t work very well anymore. A facelift, often combined with a neck lift, can dramatically smooth the skin on the cheeks, along the jawline, and on the upper half of the neck.
We encourage potential clients in West Palm Beach to consult with us before making a decision regarding surgical correcting of the face and neck skin. Several factors come into play including the thickness of the skin, the size and strength of the facial and neck muscles, and how much fatty tissue is located beneath the skin. If a facelift and neck lift combo is deemed a viable solution, we’ll show the client just how simple and effective the procedure is.
Facelift for Tightening the Facial Skin
During a typical facelift, the skin is lifted away and some maintenance is performed on the subcutaneous tissues. Excess skin and fatty tissue can be removed. The effect is quite dramatic, with the facial skin now showing fewer wrinkles and creases. Recovery time for a facelift varies.
A Facelift and a Neck Lift for Positive Results
A neck lift is similar to a facelift in a lot of ways. During this procedure, our surgeon may pull upward and outward on the skin to correct sagging and creases along the jawline and below. In some cases, excess fat is removed as well. Our surgeon may also tighten the muscle.
Combining the two procedures into one is simple for our surgeon. After the patient has fully healed, the facial skin is smoother, and the jawline shows no sagging due to fat deposits. The upper neck is also smoother and without the annoying horizontal creases. If a turkey wattle existed, it exists no more.
