There are 5 causes of facial aging – three environmental factors (smoke, alcohol and sun), genetics and menopause. Unfortunately, as a person ages these 5 factors cause the soft tissues of the face to sag. This not only affects the skin, but also the deeper layers of the face. There are many treatment options that can be used to help correct the signs of aging.
A face lift is a surgical procedure that can help rejuvenate the cheeks and jawline restoring a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Excess skin and fat as well as loss of muscle tone in the neck results in an aged appearance of the lower face. A neck lift is facial rejuvenation procedure that improves these signs of aging at the jawline and neck. The procedure can tighten the neck muscles and remove excess skin of the neck. This provides a smoother and more toned appearance of the chin and neck areas.
There are several types of face and neck lift procedures that Dr. Freedland performs. In all of them, he uses state-of-the-art techniques to ensure that the incisions are made just behind the hairline and hidden in the natural folds around the face and neck. The results of these surgeries can last 10 years or longer. These procedures can be performed together or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, eyelid lift or facial fillers.
Here’s what our previous clients have had to say after choosing to work with Michael H. Freedland, M.D.
I now look as young as I feel! Thank you Dr. Freedland for actually listening to me, and spending so much time going over surgery options. About a year ago, I ended up having a mini facelift, eye lid lift and he shaved a little off the nose. Just enough to really make a difference. I was bruised and swollen at first, which I expected, but after a few months it really looked good! He didn’t pull too tight or make me look surprised. People tell me I look well-rested, which is exactly what I wanted. Great experience, I would recommend Dr. Freedland to anyone!
I’m so glad I have good instincts and trusted my feelings about you.
