Question: My cheeks have begun to get a bit flat and hollow with age and my jaw line can also be refined. Are these things that can be fixed with a facelift?
Answer: In general, cases of loss of volume may need a volumetric solution. Aging and sagging can be improved with a facelift and maybe a procedure on the neck depending on the jaw line. Quite often a combination of techniques including skin resurfacing with laser can give the most optimum result. There are differences in the neck lift and facelift. Neck lift refers to techniques used to elevate the neck and the tissues of the neck. The facelift refers to procedures used to improve and rejuvenate the mid face and the region from the level of the eyes down to the end of the mandible. Frequently these are done in combination and may also be combined with other procedures such as fillers or laser resurfacing.
