Have you noticed that your cheeks, neck, and jowls are sagging? The subcutaneous fat pads in the cheeks sag as we age, as does the skin. This happens because the tissues do not have as much support as they did when we were younger.

The muscles and ligaments of the face lose their strength over time, meaning that the support they once offered becomes greatly diminished. With a facelift, the muscles, ligaments, and skin are tightened to restore support, structure, and definition. Loose tissue is also trimmed as needed.

Contact our office if you would like to find out more about the aging process and how it affects the face. During an informative consultation, Dr. Burke Chegar, who is double-board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology, will answer all of your facelift questions.
