Our faces can begin to show signs of aging as we get older, which may include wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and loose, sagging skin around the midface and jawline.
Many facial rejuvenation procedures are available to address these concerns, but it may be difficult to decide which treatment is right for you.
We have listed the most popular facial procedures below, along with a brief description of what the process entails.
As with any surgical procedure, a consultation is required so your surgeon can examine your facial anatomy and make recommendations for which procedure can benefit you.
What Is a Facelift?
The skin on the lower half of our face is susceptible to sagging, creases, lines, and wrinkles. These effects often occur as part of the natural aging process.
Some factors may cause us to develop these signs of aging prematurely, including our environment and genetics, as well as sun exposure and habits such as smoking.
Through facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, Dr. Scott Green has been able to help many women and men look younger and feel more confident in their appearance.
Sagging and drooping skin, fine lines, and wrinkles in the lower part of the face can all be addressed by a facelift.
What Is the Facelift Procedure?
Typically, a facelift is performed through an incision around the ears and into the hair line.
Lines on either side of the nose and mouth, a sagging jawline, and folds or fat deposits are all corrected through this procedure.
After removing excess fat and skin and tightening the underlying muscles, the remaining skin and tissue are pulled together.
Dr. Scott Green carefully smooths out the skin to create dramatic yet incredibly natural results.
Facelift surgery can provide a smoother, more youthful, refreshed appearance.
When the neck ages quicker than the face or significant weight loss leaves loose neck bands, some patients want to address their neck before anything else.
Excess fat and loose, hanging skin are removed, and neck muscles are repositioned, revealing a slender, youthful neck.
In some cases, neck liposuction is needed to remove excess fatty tissue.
Over time, our eyelid skin starts to lose elasticity that keeps it tight, causing it to sag. This can make us look prematurely older, and more tired or worn out than we actually feel.
Genetics and lifestyle play a role in accelerating the aging process in some individuals.
Eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids.
Blepharoplasty can improve lower eyelid droopiness, bags, wrinkles, and loose excess skin of the upper and lower eyelids.
Dr. Scott Green works with each patient individually to identify and define their goals and concerns. This helps establish the ideal procedure plan to achieve their aesthetic desires.
Eyelid lift surgery can be performed on one or both eyelids and can be done on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both.
This procedure can refresh the eyelids and bring a more youthful energy to your face.
Some people are genetically predisposed to have heavy brows, while others may find their eyebrows sagging over time due to gravity and the natural aging process.
A heavy, sagging brow can make us seem not only older than we are, but more upset or angry than we actually feel.
There are many common signs of aging that people notice in their brows as well, particularly the vertical furrow lines between the eyebrows, as well as horizontal creases, lines, and wrinkles.
