Full Face Lift / Rhytidectomy Surgeon in Vancouver
As we age our facial skin and soft tissues undergo numerous changes, including loss of elasticity, sagginess, thinning, loss of volume and sun damage. These changes result in the characteristic signs of an aging face; line and wrinkle formation, jowls, down-turned mouth, heavy cheek folds, cheek flattening and descent.
Before considering surgery many individuals will have tried or have been using fillers and Botox, in some instances for years. If you’re finding that such treatments are becoming less and less effective, it’s time to consider something more radical; a facelift.
A facelift is a comprehensive surgical procedure that aims to reverse many of the above changes. Whilst it doesn’t halt the aging process it can ‘set the clock back’ by 10-20 years in many cases. It is performed through a hidden incision located around the ear and hairline. More often than not it is performed alongside a neck-lift that aims to improve the appearance and contour of the neck and jawline simultaneously (see neck-lift section). When performed correctly a facelift should not result in a ‘windswept’ or ‘operated-on’ appearance that is frequently seen in movie stars and celebrities after poorly executed surgeries. The goal instead is to create a visibly younger and healthier appearing self without the telltale signs of surgery.
