As we age, our face goes through many noticeable changes. Environmental factors, stress, genetics, and gravity can all contribute to our face losing volume and a youthful tone. As the support structure of the skin weakens, unwanted sagging skin appears.

Non-surgical approaches have limitations with regard to the extent of restoration that can be accomplished on both wrinkles and volume deprived areas of the face. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of North Shore utilizes the most advanced techniques for face lifts. The goal is always to achieve a refreshed and natural look, which can be accomplished by lifting the cheeks and jowls, smoothing out wrinkles, and contouring the neck. This can all be done with minimal scarring.

Some patients choose to have other procedures in combination with a face lift such as liposuction, brow lift, or eyelid lift for a more comprehensive makeover. Combination procedures are done frequently because they can be performed safely, and they take full advantage of the recovery period.
