What is a Facelift?
Sun damage, gravity, weight loss, stress, and aging can cause your facial skin to sag. It can also diminish your facial volume. A facelift can resolve both of these issues and restore your youth. During the procedure, Dr. Schalit will place incisions behind your ear and around your hairline. He’ll remove excess tissue, skin, and fat and tighten your underlying muscles.
Facelift surgery usually takes about 2 to3 hours to complete. After about three weeks after the procedure, you’ll notice natural results. Keep in mind that while a facelift will bring you a long-lasting improvement in your skin, it will not stop the process of aging. However, you will look much younger than you would if you didn’t receive the surgery.
Why Pair and Eyelid with a Facelift
Dr. Schalit recommends combining an eyelid with a facelift if you’re bothered by excess eyelid fat and facial sagging. By doing so, you can improve two common aging concerns and achieve more dramatic results. An eyelid paired with a facelift is the ideal way to find the fountain of youth.
