Injectable fillers have spiked in popularity in recent years. These products are quite effective at minimizing lines and wrinkles. But they are no replacement for the traditional facelift when it comes to severely sagging skin. If you are a resident of Costa Mesa who is bothered by the appearance of overly lax skin that makes you appear older than you are, you should consider this surgical procedure to improve your facial contours and help you appear more youthful and vigorous.
You may be a good candidate for a facelift procedure in Costa Mesa if you have loose and sagging facial skin, especially if it is found along your jawline or under your chin. Those with well-defined bone structure and strong jaw lines also make good candidates for the procedure.
A facelift is able to address a number of problems, including midface sagging, deep creases under lower eyelids, creases that run from the corners of the mouth to the nose, fallen or displaced fat, and loose skin that gives the appearance of a double chin.
Before undergoing your procedure, you will take part in a consultation where we will evaluate your medical history, your bone structure, skin elasticity, wrinkles, and hairline to guide the placement of needed surgical openings during your procedure. We will also go over your expectations and goals to ensure that they are realistic in regards to your results.
After we have determined that you would make a good candidate for the procedure, we will book your appointment and provide a list of preoperative instructions. You may be asked to refrain from taking certain medications that could interfere with your recovery. If you are a smoker, you will need to stop before your procedure since this could interfere with the healing process.
During the process, we create openings and lift skin from your face, rearranging underlying soft tissues into a more appropriate position and removing any excess skin. A liposuction procedure may be used to remove excess fat. Finally, we will redrape your facial skin and seal all openings.
