Scottsdale, AZ patients unhappy with their aging appearance have a few different options to choose from. Skin laxity that causes the development of fine lines and wrinkles can dramatically change the look of a patient—especially if the formation of skin imperfections is severe. Loose skin along the jaw can hang and wrinkles and folds may become deeper with time. While there are noninvasive options for patients to choose from, including skin tightening treatments or cosmetic injections, there comes a point when the only solution may be a facelift.
What is a facelift?
Dr. Joseph C. Berardi describes the facelift as a cosmetic surgery used to pull the skin of the face upward to reduce sagging and skin laxity. In doing so, it also smooths fine lines and wrinkles from the face. Patients can take a step back in time with this procedure and slow the signs of aging dramatically.
What is a good age to get a facelift?
Everyone ages different, so it can be difficult to provide an exact age at which a patient should strongly consider a facelift. The best way to decide if a facelift is right for you is to schedule an initial evaluation with our team at Berardi Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery to get a thorough examination done. Our team will discuss all the treatment options available to an individual, including surgical and nonsurgical, and help them make an educated decision in regards to the best solution for their needs. For some patients with mild signs of aging, injectables such as Botox or one of our many dermal fillers may provide a temporary option. Patients with severe aging signs will often benefit most from a surgical facelift.
What about scarring?
The procedure is done along the hairline of the patient and behind the ears. By doing so, this places the incisions in areas that can be easily disguised, ensuring a natural finished result.
