Consultation required prior to receiving treatment.
The face is central to one's appearance and commonly our most distinguishing feature. Countless men and women seek facial rejuvenation procedures to regain their youthful look. A facelift, otherwise known as rhytidectomy, is the pinnacle of these procedures.
Sun damage, skin type, previous skin care, and smoking history all impact the way we age. People notice new lines and wrinkles, skin quality changes, and skin sagging in many places. For this reason, each facelift is a unique compilation of procedures geared toward the desires the individual patient. When it comes to performing a facelift, Philadelphia-area plastic surgeon Dr. Laura Gowen understands that precision is key. She and her team, based in Bryn Mawr and Newtown Square, work to provide their patients with the results they seek by tightening loose skin on the face.
For many people, the aging process prominently impacts the cheeks, as well as the chin and neck area. In the mirror, they see a loss of definition and contour, changing what was once a face with clear, sleek features into one with jowls, neck bands, or simply sagging skin. A facelift addresses this issue by lifting the soft tissues and removing excess skin.
A facelift tightens the skin in the middle and lower part of the face, so patients who want to address wrinkles and lines on their forehead with surgery may consider a brow lift, which focuses on the area above the eyebrows. A blepharoplasty specifically targets the eyelid region, which may droop or appear puffy as the years go by. Any combination of these procedures can be performed at the same time to rejuvenate your face's look and feel.
