The quality of the skin begins to show the effects of sun damage and advanced aging. ?A rhytidectomy, commonly called a facelift, can address these and other problems. This procedure involves removing excess fat, tightening underlying tissue, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. ?A?blepharoplasty can assist in rejuvenating the area around the eyes by removing excess tissue that may be present. ?A brow lift repositions the eyebrows and often complements the upper eyelid blepharoplasty. ?Lasers, skin peels, and dermabrasion can improve the skin’s appearance. ?Facial rejuvenation cannot stop the aging process from affecting your facial appearance, but it can help restore your face to a more youthful appearance.
