There’s a reason that the facelift, is such a popular procedure in the field of cosmetic surgery. A facelift with Dr. Chung can diminish the effects of the aging process giving you smooth, youthful results. There’s no reason not to age beautifully! A facelift is a great stand-alone procedure or it may be combined with other procedures such as a brow lift, neck lift, or neck liposuction.
A facelift is used, quite simply, to eliminate excess skin on your face, creating a toned youthful appearance. If you currently are noticing signs of aging like jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth you may be an ideal candidate for this procedure. Other issues that may be addressed with a facelift are: a tired, or unhappy looking facial expression (caused by deep frown or forehead lines), or facial and neck creases and lines. In a facelift Dr. Chung focuses on removal of excess fat and skin, tightening the underlying muscles, and then re-draping the skin of the face and neck.
