How can a facelift help me look younger?

The natural aging process affects everyone in a different way, but there are some classic signs of facial aging that seem to be inevitable for almost everyone at one point or another. Fortunately, facelift surgery and other facial enhancement procedures offer a compelling opportunity to dramatically improve or even reverse many of these symptoms of facial aging. Some of the most common effects of facial aging that can be improved with a facelift include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Deep facial folds
  • Lost volume in the face
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Drooping jowls
  • Weak jawline
  • “Sad" mouth corners
  • Tired, old, or angry appearance overall
  • Turkey neck

Which kind of facelift do I need?

One of the most popular facelift FAQs is which type of facelift a person may benefit from most. Of course, the answer will depend on the patient's specific concerns, age, skin laxity, degree of facial aging, and other factors. For this reason, it is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fernau so that he can carefully evaluate your unique individual anatomy and recommend a customized surgical plan for you. Oftentimes, a combination of facelift surgery plus another type of facial rejuvenation — such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or something else — may offer the best opportunity to achieve the most complete and natural-looking transformation possible that addresses all of a patient's concerns simultaneously. Some of the facelift and facial enhancement procedures that may be recommended for those in the Pittsburgh area include:
