As we age, skin and facial tissues lose elasticity, and gravity takes its toll, resulting in jowling, deep creases, and loose skin gathered below the chin. If these signs of aging bother you, a facelift with Dr. Thors may be a great option to help you turn back the clock and feel more confident in your appearance.
Facelift plastic surgery can refine your natural attributes, reduce or minimize wrinkles and frown lines, and give you a more youthful appearance. If you have excess fat or skin on your neck, then a neck lift may be combined with a facelift for an overall improvement to the facial profile. A facelift with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gunnar Thors can help you look years younger, more alert, and even healthier.
A facelift address sagging tissues and lax skin on the cheeks, jaw and neck. If you are bothered by jowling, loose skin on the neck, or deep facial folds, a facelift can lift and firm these tissues and restore a more youthful appearance. Women and men in Algonquin and the greater Chicago area choose facelift surgery with Dr. Thors for a number of reasons. While most facelifts are performed on patients over 40, a facelift can benefit anyone bothered by signs of aging on the lower to mid-face and neck. If you have any of the following goals, a facelift is an option to consider:
Since facelift surgery concentrates on the mid-face and neck, a facelift alone will not address sagging skin on the eyelids or brow. Therefore, many of our patients choose to combine facelift surgery with a brow lift and/or eyelid lift to achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
During your consultation with Dr. Thors, you will discuss your concerns and goals. Dr. Thors will explain the details of facelift plastic surgery, taking the time to build trust and rapport to better understand you and what you would like to accomplish. As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thors will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs and creates the results that you hope for.
Dr. Thors performs facelift surgery using general anesthesia provided by licensed anesthesiology professionals. Through an incision made in the natural folds in front of and behind the ear, behind the hairline, and/or underneath the chin, Dr. Thors will lift and tighten underlying muscles and connective tissue on the face and remove or reposition fat as needed. He will then redrape the skin over the newly lifted tissues, removing extra skin to achieve a smooth, natural contour to the face and neck.
