Genetics, diet, smoking, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process can all contribute to a loosening and sagging of the skin and underlying facial soft tissues, resulting in wrinkles and jowls. The neck muscles can also loosen, causing people to look years older than they really are. Facelift surgery is designed to eliminate face and neck wrinkles simultaneously, thereby rejuvenating the skin and restoring a youthful appearance. When performing facelift surgery at his South Carolina practice, Dr. Ram Kalus’ goal is to produce the “un-operated” appearance of a natural, younger-looking face.
Today, the effects of aging on the skin no longer need to be permanent. The appearance of youth can be restored with surgical or non-surgical procedures to enhance facial rejuvenation. Dr. Ram Kalus provides patients from Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Columbia, South Carolina with multiple options for facial rejuvenation, to accommodate their busy lives.
You may want to consider facelift surgery if you are bothered by signs of aging in the face and neck and you are seeking a more permanent solution. A facelift can restore your youthful appearance by eliminating or improving:
Depending on the complexity of your facelift surgery, the length of the procedure may vary but is usually several hours. Typically facelift surgery is an outpatient surgery, but a short inpatient stay may be required for some patients.
During your facelift consultation, Dr. Kalus may recommend additional facial plastic surgery or skin treatments. Microdermabrasion and Skin Conditioning is an excellent complement to facelift surgery and can help refine the skin’s texture.
