Nature takes its toll on our faces as we age. From sun exposure and gravity to the simple march of time, aging is inevitable. Fortunately, today’s advanced facelift procedures can effectively turn back the clock and deliver a vibrant, more youthful-looking you. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside is pleased to offer the latest aesthetic innovations at her Washington, DC, practice.
In a facelift procedure, Dr. Gartside makes two incisions -- one on each side of the face -- in order to remove excess fat and skin, smoothe the underlying muscle, and gently tighten the skin to deliver a smoother, younger appearance. Dr. Gartside uses her artful touch to ensure a natural look.
Most healthy adults who have realistic expectations and understand the potential risks involved in all surgery are good candidates for facelift procedures. Patients should also:
- Not smoke
- Not suffer from uncontrolled health conditions that may cause complications
- Disclose any medications they may be taking
- Have signs of facial aging that they would like to improve
