Facelift surgery is a very effective way to address skin laxity and excess fat deposits in the neck and along the jaw and chin. With this procedure, Dr. Corey can produce a more refined and youthful look by removing loose and sagging skin, and lifting underlying supportive tissue. However, if a facelift were to eliminate deep wrinkles, skin would need to be pulled so tightly as to produce an unnatural and even uncomfortable look. As such, facelift surgery is not typically considered a good solution for treating more pronounced wrinkles.
A facelift can certainly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it should not be relied upon to eliminate them completely. For that, nonsurgical options such as injectable fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic are often the better choice. With these treatments, the areas of your face most impacted by wrinkles can be individually targeted, making them ideal as both stand-alone options and enhancements for surgical treatments. This can be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation with Dr. Corey.
