The accumulated effects of aging, sun damage, pollutants, dietary, and lifestyle habits increasingly appear on the face and neck as we grow older. The skin’s collagen production begins to break down, causing lines and wrinkles to form, while the skin’s tone becomes more uneven and dull as a result of sun exposure and a slowdown in skin cell turnover. In addition the face loses it’s youthful shape and structure, becoming thinner and more gaunt in appearance as a result of an erosion of facial fat and bone. Because of the loss of this underlying support structure and a diminishment in the skin’s quality, the skin begins to sag and wrinkle, and the face loses it’s youthful suppleness and defined contours.
Surgical Procedures including the facelift, browlift, eylid surgery (blepharoplasty),and necklift help to restore a more youthful and refreshed look to the face through techniques that lift and tighten sagging skin and muscles. Dr. Laufer frequently combines these procedures with stem-cell enriched fat grafting to restore volume to areas such as the cheeks and lips and to fill in wrinkles and folds. Some of the benefits that can be obtained from these surgeries include:
A younger appearance that better reflects your inner vitality A more refreshed and rested appearance Smoother, firmer skin Restoration of youthful facial contours such as full, lifted cheeks and lips.
