Take Years off Your Face – Get More Youthful Look
Do you often stand in front of the mirror and analyze your looks? Feel that you look older than friends of your age? Scared that this will only get worse with time? If you answered yes to any of these, then you are not alone.
Over time, fat deposits in the layers of skin and between muscles to give your cheeks, chin and neck a bloated and sagging look. While exercise can trim down fat in other parts of the body, this is not very effective on facial fat. Further, your bone structure, contour of the face and genetic factors can also impart a certain ‘largeness’ to your face.
However, there is hope. If you live in the Midwest, the only surgeon to see is Dr. Wafik A Hanna, a board certified facial cosmetic surgeon with over 30 years of experience specializing in Rhytidectomy while serving clients in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. Dr. Wafik Hanna successfully performs hundreds of face and neck lift surgeries each year and has been well recognized as the premier expert in the procedure throughout his distinguished career.
Rhytidectomy, also called Neck Lift and Face Lift surgery, is a surgical procedure that will lift your chin, cheeks, jowls and neck, and give your face a youthful tautness to it. In this procedure, a few incisions are made inside the tragus (the little cartilage in front of the ear canal), behind the ear in the natural folds of the neck, the excessive fat is removed and the underlying tissues and muscles are sutured tightly. This makes your cheeks, jowls and chin look ‘taut’ and ‘lifted’, yet very natural.
The best part about Rhytidectomy or Neck lift and Face Lift surgery is that it’s conducted under general anesthesia and the patient is discharged the same day. There is minimal discomfort or swelling after the procedure. To make the procedure more effective, a dressing covering the head and neck is worn for a period of 5 days. Further, depending on how much work is needed on your face and neck, the cost can be affordable.
While age is an irreversible process, Rhytidectomy, or Neck lift and Face Lift surgery, can easily take off 10 to 20 years of your age.
