When you look in the mirror, the face staring back at you may not reflect how you feel or see yourself. Genetics, the environment, and lifestyle all play a factor in how we age and may leave you looking tired, older and more wrinkled.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift or rhytidectomy can match up the image in the mirror with the image in your mind, giving your face a firm, fresh appearance. A facelift is a surgical procedure to tighten the skin and underlying structures along the jaw line, neck and lower face, as well as smooth out loose skin by removing excess fat. A facelift can make you feel and look decades younger, allowing you to put your best face forward.Many times, other procedures are done along with the facelift to maximize the aesthetic result.
Eye lift and browlift, for example, can safely be combined with the facelift. A discussion of other procedures, incisions and other pertinent questions can be answered during your consultation with Dr. Krummen, as she addresses your personal goals, your health history as well as everything you can expect during surgery and the recovery afterwards.If you are interested in having this type of procedure done, contact Dr. Krummen for a consultation to enhance your knowledge and determine if you are the right candidate for surgery.
When the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution. Excess wrinkling of the neck skin causes a “turkey neck” or double chin, and jowl lines to become more prominent. A lower rhytidectomy, or neck lift, is a surgical procedure to remove the excess skin and fat causing the relaxation in the lower face as well as the loose skin in the neck. Don’t let your neck be the giveaway of your age, or even add years to your appearance. At your consultation Dr. Krummen will address your personal goals, your health history, as well as everything you can expect during surgery and recovery afterwards.
