Deep wrinkles? Sagging neck and jowls? Our faces take the brunt of the elements and show the first signs of aging. Aging skin loses its elasticity and seems to hang on the face. What can be done to turn back the clock? Many people turn to a face lift in the El Paso area to revive and refresh their appearance. A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop this aging process. What it can do is set back the clock, improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of the lower two-thirds of the face by tightening sagging facial muscles, smoothing wrinkled skin, and removing excess fat. This procedure is often combined with a necklift for improvements under the chin. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but can be performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Face lift surgery usually takes between 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on the extent of the procedure.
