As we age, the effects of gravity becomes much more noticeable on our faces. Additionally, the skin and face are often exposed to excessive sunlight, stress, and other environmental factors that can prematurely age the skin. When men and women want to turn back time by eliminating the deep creases and folds that can appear on the skin, they often consider the advantages of undergoing a surgical procedure such as a facelift.
Dr. Matthew J. Trovato of Manhattan, NY describes the facelift procedure as a surgical method of tightening the skin on the facial area to reduce skin laxity, sagging, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The facelift, also referred to as a rhytidectomy, can improve these visible signs of aging with surgical treatment. The procedure is often started around the forehead, where an incision is made and the skin is tightened. Excess fat and skin are removed, and then the patient is sutured along the hairline where the scars will be practically invisible. The result? Years taken off of one’s appearance!
Any adult male or female who wants to turn back the hands of time with a surgical procedure such as a facelift will need to be evaluated to determine if it is appropriate for their needs. Not everyone with fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity will be best for this procedure. In most cases, the best candidates are those with severe signs of aging that cannot be addressed in less invasive ways such as cosmetic injectables called dermal fillers. Patients in their 30’s with mild signs of aging may be better suited for cosmetic injectables that can provide a non-surgical approach. To determine the best treatment, patients are urged to speak to Dr. Matthew J. Trovato regarding their desires.
