Face Lift Inland Empire - Rhytidectomy Riverside
Our face loses fat as we age (it would be nice if this happened to our tummies or flanks as we get older!). The loss of fat from the face gives the stereotypical “deflated”, sad, and/or tired appearance to our face as we age. In addition, the skin connections to the underlying face become loose and the skin falls down on the face. This gives the jaw a square appearance called jowls. The combination of the loss of fat (volume) and the sagging skin are an extremely stereotypical and recognizable veneer that gives away our age. But luckily, we are able to restore our look!
A facelift creates an elegant, tasteful, and youthful face by:
- Tightening the underlying tissues (aka SMAS) of the face and neck.
- Excising excess skin on the face.
- Moving the remaining skin on the face and neck back to their correct location. Thus correcting the jowls and sagging skin.
- Injecting fat back into the face correcting the deflated appearance. Thus, restoring a full, youthful, and graceful appearance to the face.
