The aging process inevitably causes a slowing in your skin’s natural processes of collagen production and exfoliation. This can cause the skin around your face and neck to sag and the wrinkles to deepen. One way to address skin aging is to have your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Natalie Driessen, perform a facelift.

A facelift in Palm Desert, California, is designed to improve sagging in the middle of your face and deep creases below the lower eyelids or along the nose and mouth. It can also improve skin tone and texture in the lower face as well as loose skin or excess fatty deposits under your chin.

You might also be interested in having cheek or chin implants installed to accent key features on your face. If so, be sure to mention this to your cosmetic surgeon during the initial consultation.

The typical recovery time varies depending on your age, general state of health, and quality of aftercare. Dehydration, tobacco use, and undue stress can all increase your recovery time. It’s a good idea to take a week or more off from work to allow you to rest while the incision heals.

If you have been struggling with the appearance of skin aging and you’re interested in a facelift, you should call (760) 773-6616 to schedule an appointment at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists.
