Ageing is a natural process, but as a result, many of the support structures of the face, including the skin and muscles, tend to sag or loosen.
With the normal ageing process, the soft tissues and skin of the face lose volume and elasticity leaving some people feeling they look tired and old. Many patients, both men and women, who feel this way choose to undergo a facelift as they wish to take away the signs of ageing but still keep their own natural and unique appearance.
Tighten and contour
A face and neck lift can improve the appearance of the jaw line and lower face, and the shape and contour of the neck, by repositioning and tightening the deep supporting structures of these areas. Depending on your needs and wishes, we can lift the face and neck in one operation – therefore also reducing a double chin. Other procedures, such as forehead lifting or eyelid surgery, can also be performed at the same time for a more complete facial rejuvenation.
Reverse time and regain your looks
A facelift from Dr Yang involves re-supporting these soft tissues of the face, jawline and neck. He starts by making an incision in the temple hairline, passing down just in front of the ear, curling around the lower part of the ear and ending in the hairline behind the ear. As compared to previous surgical methods, only a small amount of skin is removed to minimise the “operated on” look and instead create a natural appearance – it’s still you, just improved.
Discuss your situation with Dr Yang
When considering a surgical procedure, your first step should be consulting a plastic surgeon to discuss your situation, needs and wishes. Dr Yang can assess whether a facelift is appropriate for you and then help you achieve your goal.
