Restore your youthful appearance

The natural aging process and exposure to environmental elements can cause your face and neck to sag and wrinkle. A well-done facelift with Dr. Lewis can improve many of these effects and restore your youthful appearance.

What can a facelift do for you?

  • Enhance the overall appearance of your face and jawline
  • Tighten lax underlying facial muscles
  • Remove pockets of fat and excess skin on the face and neck
  • Smooth skin that is damaged due to age, stress, sun and other elements
  • Restore youthful facial contours
  • Improve creases, a loss of skin tone, sagging tissue and other telltale signs of facial aging

Facial Aging:

With time, the soft tissues of the face (SMAS layer) begin to migrate downward off of their youthful position on the cheek bones making the lower eyelids appear longer and leaving a depression between the cheek fat and cheek bone while also creating fullness at the jawline (jowels) and deepening the nasolabial folds (creases that extend from the corners of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Additionally, the skin becomes less elastic and begins to droop and wrinkle. These are the telltale signs of facial aging.

FAQ: How do I know if I'm "ready" for a facelift?

The short answer: you’ll just know.

There’s no magic age or number of wrinkles that can say definitively that you’re ready for a facelift. You will be ready once you look in the mirror and believe that you look older than you feel.

Who is a good candidate for facelift surgery?

Most patients who have facelift surgery are between 40 and 70 years of age. With that said, younger and older patients can benefit from the procedure as well. To ensure a successful facelift experience, you should:

  • Want to address sagging skin, deep creases, wrinkles and other signs of facial aging
  • Have well-defined bone structure
  • Feature good skin elasticity
  • Be in good general health

SMAS: A comprehensive facelift approach that yields natural results

The superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) facelift is the most comprehensive facelift technique available today. It involves elevating and tightening your underlying musculature to improve your facial contours where it matters most.

Combining the tightening of your muscles with the removal of excess skin creates ideal aesthetic outcomes. The results are much more natural-looking than those of traditional facelifts that simply tighten and pull aging skin taut.
