Our face is our most visible feature, one that through expression and appearance conveys what and how we feel. Facial aging includes a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue and wrinkles. These visible signs of aging can greatly impact how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. Even a person who is energetic and excited about life can appear tired or sad due to aging in the midface, jaw line and neck. The loss of youthful contours in these areas is due to a variety of factors including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress
A facelift in Pittsburgh, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Sagging in the midface can create a deep crease below the lower eyelid (called a tear trough) and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold) that may make you appear tired and sad. Fat that has fallen or is displaced and loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls (a jaw line that sags into the neck). Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a “double chin.” For more information about Face Lift in Pittsburgh, please call us at 412-963-6677.
