The signs of aging come in many forms, such as wrinkling and lines on our faces. Sagging in the cheeks can create jowls and droopiness, which leave us with a tired, older appearance. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin around the face for a rejuvenated, younger appearance.
The rhytidectomy typically involves small incisions along the hairline. The selected incision location is ideal for hiding any post-surgical marks. Excess skin is surgically removed, and the face is tightened with sutures. With the skills and experience of double-board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Evan Ransom, every precaution is taken to create a natural look and rejuvenated appearance.
Eyelid surgery, otherwise referred to as blepharoplasty, can be used to treat a wide variety of aesthetic and functional issues in and around the surrounding tissues. Some of the more common issues surgery can treat are excess skin on the eyelids and sagging or hollowed areas under the eyes. With surgery, you can permanently enhance your look by removing and reconstructing excess skin around the eyes.
Regardless of your reason for blepharoplasty, it’s critical to consider any and all pre-surgical suggestions and steps that your surgeon may discuss in the days leading up to the procedure. Consulting with the experienced Dr. Evan Ransom, a double-board-certified surgeon specializing in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is highly advisable in order to prepare properly. Dr. Ransom and his professional staff should be able to fill you in on all the precautions leading up to surgery.
