Aging results in loosening of the skin of the face and neck. Jowls develop along the jawline and excess skin develops beneath the chin creating a double chin or "turkey neck." All incisions are camouflaged in natural creases and tailored to the patient's face and hairline. Traditional facelift techniques address the sagging of the muscle, fat and skin of the lower face. Aging of the face can also cause hollowing of the lower eyelid and loss of fullness in the cheek or "mid-face" not always addressed with traditional facelift techniques. Rejuvenating the mid-face as well as the lower face can result in a natural, refreshed and un-stretched appearance.
Most patients requesting evaluation for facelift feel that their facial features do not reflect their youthful spirit and energy level. They are looking for ways to refresh and rejuvenate their appearance. There are many different variations of the facelift procedure that smooth the skin of the face and neck, tighten the underlying tissues and muscle, and remove excess skin. Ultimately, a facelift in Jackson MS will allow you to turn back the hands of time to better reflect your youthful spirit.
