PLASTIC SURGERY KIM EDWARD KOGER, M.D.
Q: What are some of the aging changes to the face and neck?
A: As we slowly age, our facial and neck skin loses its elasticity and gravity sags the tissues downward causing jowls to form and deepening of the naso-labial folds and marionette lines. These changes detract from our appearance, making us look older than we feel.
Q: What are the treatment options for aging changes of the face?
A: The definitive treatment for loss of elasticity is a face/neck lift. A facelift is also commonly performed with a browlift and eyelid surgery. Medspa based treatments, on the other hand, are very helpful in complexion based concerns such as textural changes in the skin, as well as pigmentation issues or broken capillaries. These treatments include photofacials, IPL, Dermalinfusion, microneedling and chemical peels–to name a few.
Q: What should be the aesthetic goal of a face/neck lift?
A: A face/neck lift repositions the facial and neck skin upwards to where they were in youth. This results in softening these aging changes making you look like you, a decade younger and so naturally beautiful that no one will know you cheated.
