Many patients enjoy using nonsurgical injectables to plump and sculpt the face. However, while these surgical alternatives create flattering results, there often comes a time that surgical intervention is necessary. Facelift surgery tightens saggy skin, lifts drooping muscles, and takes years off a patient’s appearance. A traditional facelift procedure is often more effective than noninvasive procedures alone. Dr. Steven Sigalove, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Scottsdale, specializes in facelift and facial surgery procedures.
When to Elect to Have Surgery
Choosing to undergo plastic surgery can be a daunting decision. Some men and women feel uneasy or unsure if they’re ready for this next step. Although each patient has unique needs and aesthetic goals, there are a few common signs that facelift surgery may be recommended:
- Drooping jowls
- Sagging cheeks
- Undefined jawline
- Deep lines around the nose and mouth
Facelift surgery targets these common problem areas. The procedure creates long-lasting results, effectively treating these trouble spots. During a private consultation, your doctor will be able to determine if facelift surgery is right for you.
