What is a Facelift?

     A facelift, technically know as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck.

     Sagging in the midface can create a deep crease below the lower eyelid (called a tear trough) and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold) that may make you appear tired and sad. Fat that has fallen or is displaced and loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls (a jaw line that sags into the neck). Loose skin and excess fatty  deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a "double chin."

     A facelift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved tone in facial skin and underlying muscle. Where desired improvement can be isolated to the midfacial region and where excess skin is less a factor, a limited incision lift may be an alternative to a traditional facelift.

     As a restorative surgery, a facelift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. Although you will continue to age naturally, aging will progress from the more youthful version of yourself that has been restored by a facelift. Rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.

     A facelift is best performed on adult men and women who feel that their outward facial aging no longer reflects the youth and vigor they feel physically and emotionally. Good candidates are:

        • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening             illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
        • Non-smokers
        • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific, but               realistic goals in mind for improvement of their                       appearance

What is Eyelid Surgery?
     Cosmetic eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. 

Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:

         • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or hides the            natural contour of the upper eyelid

 ​        • Excess skin that hangs down from the upper eyelid,               sometimes impairing vision

 ​        • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the             upper eyelids

 ​        • Bags under the eyes

 ​        • Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below             the iris

 ​        • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

     These conditions typically appear as part of the natural aging process, or due to heredity. Where they are the result of heredity, individuals in their 20s and 30s may achieve a marked improvement in the appearance of their eyes through eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin, eliminates bags and restores firmness to the area surrounding the eye, making you look more rested and alert.
     Most commonly, eyelid surgery is performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and / or lower eyelids and surrounding area. Good candidates are:
       • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening             illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
       • Non-smokers
       • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in          mind for improvement through eyelid surgery
     In addition, the following medical conditions are essential to disclose if you are considering eyelid surgery:
      • Eye disease such as glaucoma, dry eye or a detached              retina
      • Thyroid disorders such as Graves' disease and under-            or over-active thyroid
      • Cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or other              circulatory disorders or diabetes
