1. Sunken Eyes. Gravity begins to pull the fat under the eyes down, which results in a sunken appearance. Typically a blepharoplasty is addressed at the time of the facelift.
2. Loss of Volume. A loss of fat in the face results in droopiness. Volume can be restored through injectables, fillers, fat, or a combination during or after your facelift.
3. Wrinkly Skin. Various factors over time can cause the skin to age and wrinkle. Think sun exposure, pollution and free-radical damage.
4. Deep Folds in Skin. This is due to the bone density changing over time. Excess skin is removed and remaining skin is pulled back.
5. A Saggy Jawline. As time goes on, bones become less dense and gravity begins to wear on the skin. Eventually, only surgery can correct and tighten the jawline.
