As a consequence of the aging process, the effects of gravity, exposure to sun and daily stress can be more easily observed on people’s faces. Deep wrinkles are developing in the area between the nose and the mouth; the line of the mandible loses its shape; wrinkles and fat deposits are developing in the neck region. A face lift can stop the process of maturing.
What can be done is to “turn the clock around” by eliminating the most visible signs of aging through the removal of the excess fat, stretch of the muscles under the skin and repositioning of the face and neck skin. The lift can be done through other procedures as well: forehead lift, eyelid or nose surgery.
