Facelift

Introduction

Aging is a part of life and reflects all of our experiences over the years – the magical moments and the stories of our lives. However, the physical cosmetic changes that accompany aging tell a different kind of story.

A face at any age can be glowing and beautiful. But if you are looking to reduce visible signs of aging and help to restore your youthful elasticity and grow, a facelift may be a great choice for a cosmetic procedure to help you achieve a major change and a youthful appearance.

Dr. Parakh understands how important your facial appearance is in every aspect of your daily life, and how valuable it is to look in the mirror and recognize your best self. She wants everyone to be able to be truly happy and satisfied with their facial appearance and presentation. Her expertise in cosmetic surgery can help you discover new possibilities for facial procedures to reflect your youthful spirit and vitality.


What is a Facelift?

A facelift, known formally as a rhytidectomy, helps to lift sagging muscle, skin and soft tissue on the face. Facelifts have been a mainstay of cosmetic surgery procedures for many years; however, recent developments have continually redefined and redeveloped the procedure to speed recovery, enhance safety and create more beautiful, natural results.

Dr. Parakh’s facelift procedures are designed to preserve and enhance all of the unique characteristics that define your face, with a youthful and natural glow, firmness and tautness.

Lines below the lower eyelids and between the nose and mouth can create an older, more tired appearance as skin sags with aging. Facelift procedures can help to redrape the skin of the neck and face, redistribute facial fat deposits and tighten the structures of the face.


How Can a Facelift Help You?

Dr. Parakh individualizes a facelift procedure for each client. While a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can reverse and roll back the visual signs of aging. A facelift can help you look more like your youthful self and reflect your own feelings of active vitality.

Even more, a facelift no longer requires a lengthy, painful recovery process. Facelift techniques like the Tissue Glue Facelift can cut recovery time down to mere days, even for a complete and comprehensive facelift procedure. This procedure produces minimal swelling and bruising and speeds recovery.
