Years of sun exposure, stress and the everyday effects of gravity can cause facial skin to lose elasticity. As a result, your skin starts to sag, your cheeks lose volume and wrinkles form.

At Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence, our plastic surgeons will assess your facial structure, skin texture and tone to determine the best facelift surgical approach for you.

Benefits of a facelift (rhytidectomy)

To give your face a smoother appearance, your surgeon:

  • Removes excess fat and skin
  • Tightens underlying muscles
  • Re-drapes skin over the new contours of your face

While a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can:

  • Smooth skin along the jawline or jowls
  • Soften wrinkles and frown lines
  • Diminish nasolabial folds, the creases between the mouth and nose
  • Add fullness to cheeks through the repositioning of fat deposits
