A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts away wrinkles and sagging. The tightening and lifting is achieved with surgery that typically involves incisions along the hairline or around the ears. Landmarks of aging such as jowls and sagging of the cheeks, eyebrows and the nasolabial areas can be tightened.

Aging signs become visibly worse as the skin loses elasticity. Elasticity is controlled by collagen, a protein that plays a key part in your skin’s health. Many skin rejuvenation treatments are focused on the reinvigoration of collagen. The skin sags because of the natural loss of elasticity over time, but smoking, sun exposure, sleep and your diet are also major factors in this process.

One of the most effective ways to tighten sagging skin around the face and the neck is with a facelift. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jay Granzow to see how a facelift can benefit you.
