As we age, our facial bone density and fat pads decrease. Collagen and skin elasticity also decline with age, which leaves many men and women with unwanted changes like deep wrinkles, skin folds and sagging skin on both the face and neck.
A facelift is the answer to a sagging jowl area and deep smile creases. In addition to tightening the skin, our surgeon deals with the structural components underneath. If you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck you may be considering a facelift.
Facelifts and neck lifts are the most effective options to address moderate-to-significant facial aging and to address the appearance of jowls and loss of neck and jaw definition. The aesthetic specialists at ICLS approach these procedures from a comprehensive perspective; by targeting the deeper structures of the face and neck, aging can effectively be addressed at all levels. This ensures natural-looking results that will give you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
