Facial Rejuvenation Charleston
The mirror never lies. More than any other part of the human body, we are most sensitive about the appearance of our face and neck. We notice even slight changes caused by aging. Fortunately, many of these effects of time can be rectified with simple procedures performed here at the center.
Rejuvenation of the face and neck areas includes numerous surgical and non-surgical options. The most commonly requested procedure is the facelift, but eyelid surgery and brow lifts are becoming popular. Plastic surgeon Dr. William Terranova has many years experienced performing facial rejuvenation procedures.
Even the most pleasant personality can develop a “frowny face” over time. The deepening creases across the forehead or high on the bridge of the nose can add years to one’s appearance. A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, restores a more youthful, refreshed look. This is accomplished by tightening the skin of the forehead through incisions either along the hairline or behind the hairline. The eyebrows are raised to a more attractive position while any droopy skin around the eyes is tightened and forehead wrinkles are softened.
The eyes often show the earliest signs of facial aging. Drooping upper eyelid skin, prominent lower eyelid fat (“bags”) and lower eyelid skin wrinkling and crow’s feet are the most commonly encountered signs of aging. When non-surgical means of correction (fillers, Botox) are not enough, surgical correction is offered.
This procedure can “set back the clock” by removing excessive facial wrinkles and sagging – the most visible signs of aging. A facelift is done by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and reshaping the skin of the face and neck. Incisions are placed inconspicuously so they go virtually unnoticed.
