At The Face & Body Center in Flowood, MS, our skilled team of plastic surgeons specializes in helping our patients achieve their aesthetic goals with a complete range of advanced cosmetic treatments and procedures, including the popular facelift surgery. If you're considering a facelift to rejuvenate your appearance and reverse the unwanted side effects of facial aging, you may be wondering what specific concerns this procedure can address. Here, we'll take a closer look at some of the most common age-related concerns that can be dramatically improved or even reversed with facelift surgery.

What happens during a facelift?

During facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, our skilled surgeons carefully lift and reposition the underlying facial tissues, tighten muscles, and remove excess skin to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. The result is a refreshed and rejuvenated look that can help restore confidence and self-assurance. Because each patient's facial anatomy, skin elasticity, goals, and other factors are unique, each facelift procedure is fully customized to include techniques and more that help meet the individual patient's needs.

What signs of facial aging can be improved with facelift surgery?

Unlike many nonsurgical treatments and procedures, which often focus on more isolated concerns, facelift surgery can address a wide range of common signs of facial aging simultaneously, including:

  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Drooping jowls
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Loose skin under the chin

There is no question that facelift surgery remains the gold standard for cosmetic anti-aging procedures when it comes to achieving the most complete, natural-looking, and longest-lasting results possible.

Does a facelift include the neck?

While a facelift primarily focuses on rejuvenating the lower two-thirds of the face, it does not typically include the neck. However, many patients choose to combine facelift surgery with a neck lift for a more complete and harmonious transformation. A neck lift can effectively address excess skin, muscle banding, and fatty deposits in the neck area, further enhancing the overall results of the facelift.

What other facial procedures can be combined with facelift surgery?

In addition to a neck lift, facelift surgery can be combined with various other facial procedures to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation outcome. These may include:

  • Chin augmentation to improve chin projection and symmetry
  • Cheek augmentation to restore lost volume and enhance cheek contours
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes and reduce drooping eyelids or under-eye bags
  • Brow lift to lift and smooth the forehead and reduce forehead wrinkles
