A natural part of the aging process is a breakdown in the skin cells and the underlying tissues. Some of the most important tissues are collagen and elastin, which begin breaking down due to increased age, as well as other factors, such as genetics, the environment and lifestyle choices. This breakdown can lead to sagging skin, deep lines and wrinkles and a generalized droopy appearance in the face and neck. While there is no way to change the cells and tissues to make them younger, there are a variety of options that you have when it comes to making your appearance more youthful. There are many reasons why you may want to consider a facelift in the West Palm Beach area.
A Loss of Skin Tightness
As early as your thirties and certainly into your fifties and beyond, you will begin to notice a gradual loosening of the skin and the underlying tissues of your face. Muscle tone may decrease, the skin loses its elasticity and tissues appear to sag. A facelift can repair these drooping tissues by pulling everything tighter.
Sagging Jowls and Neck Skin
Just as things begin drooping around the face, the jowls and the neck begin to sag more dramatically due to aging and the natural effects of gravity. This can be easily repaired with a facelift procedure that also targets the neck.
Due to constant facial expressions, as well as lifestyle choices, such as smoking, you may have found yourself with deep creases in certain areas. These creases, often called marionette lines and nasolabial folds, are completely set into the skin and cannot be solved with injectable treatments. A facelift can smooth out these folds.
A Tired Appearance
A facelift in West Palm Beach can combat the common problems that lead to a generalized tired look on the face. You may notice drooping skin around the eyes or general sagging that makes you look exhausted and older than you are. This is one of the prime reasons that people seek a facelift.
A facelift can breathe new life into your appearance by removing excess skin and fat, reshaping underlying tissues and tightening and toning the muscles and the skin of the face. After you fully recover, you will discover a more youthful face that has better texture, more tightness and fewer lines than it once did.
