The face is the most visible part of a person's body and projects an immediate first impression to those you meet. Unfortunately, sometimes a person's face does not reflect the youthful and vivacious personality of the person. Due to the effects of age, stress, sun exposure, environment, genetics, and lifestyle choices a person's face can show premature aging. Facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Sagging in the middle of your face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or has disappeared
  • Loss of skin tone in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposites under the chin and jaw can give even a person of normal weight the appearance of a double chin

Rejuvenation procedures typically performed in conjunction with a facelift are brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Hawner will have an in depth discussion with you to review your medical history and listen to your plastic surgery desires and goals. He will also conduct a thorough examination to determine if you are a good candidate for a facelift. By the end of your consultation, Dr. Hawner will have developed a plan tailored for your specific body requirements and your desired goals for the outcome.
