Virginia Facial Plastic Surgery Questions: What Areas Can a Facelift Fix?

Facelift surgery is the most effective way to remove years from your facial appearance. Focusing on the lower half of your face, a facelift can eliminate jowls, double chin, and neck wrinkles, restore lift to drooping or saggy cheeks, and even eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. What facelift surgery can do for you is best determined during your initial consultation with board-certified Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside.

Other Facial Procedures

Facelift surgery can remove several years’ appearance from your lower face, but is not designed to address signs of aging in its mid and upper areas. In many cases, facelift surgery is combined with other options to fully enhance your entire appearance.

Commonly combined with facelift surgery are procedures such as:

  • Blepharoplasty to produce a more alert and youthful appearance to the eyes
  • Brow lift to elevate sagging eyebrows and smooth the forehead area

Of course, combining procedures is not right for everyone. Dr. Gartside will customize your treatment to meet your specific needs. Also offered are endoscopic and mid-facelift options which may be of greater benefit to people with only minimal signs of aging.
