As we age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and everyday stress can be seen in our bodies as well as in our faces. Deep furrows appear between the nose and the mouth, the cheeks droop, fat and wrinkles appear around the neck. A cervicofacial lift (cervico refers to neck) cannot stop this process. However, it can “pause the clock”, improving the most apparent signs of aging, tightening the facial muscles, eliminating the excess fat and redistributing the skin of the neck and face.
The facial lift can be done by itself or in conjuction with other procedures like a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or a rhinoplasty (nose surgery). The forehead lift corrects the drooping of the eyebrows and the wrinkles on the brow and forehead.
