As you get older, the skin tissues of your face and neck will lose the snug collagen support they once had. Gradually, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on your face and neck. As a result, deep creases beside your mouth may appear, your jaw line may slacken, and your neck may develop loose folds and fat deposits.
The only effective and proven method of rejuvenating sagging facial skin is by a surgical procedures known as a face-lift. A face-lift and neck-lift counteract these signs of aging by tightening muscle, repositioning fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face and neck a fresher and more youthful look.
Dr. Saab’s face-lifting technique addresses all the causes of facial aging. The procedure involves elevating the facial fat that has fallen into the upper lip/cheek fold and into the jowl area. This fat is then suspended back into the cheek area where it should be.
This process has a threefold effect: the reduction of the prominent upper lip/cheek fold, the re-creation of a fuller cheek area similar to that of youth, and the re-definition of the jaw line. This effectively widens the face at the cheek level and narrows it within the jaw area, resulting in a youthful, triangular face.
During a consultation, Dr. Saab will perform a comprehensive diagnostic of your face and neck, and discuss the best options available to you. He will listen to your specific goals, develop a treatment plan and show you pre and post op photos of the procedures you are discussing.
