Wrinkling and sagging on our face and neck are almost guaranteed to happen at some point if we live long enough. When they appear, that’s when you realize your youth is starting to pass you by. Luckily, with advances in surgical techniques over the years, we can now fight against the aging process with our Seattle facelift.

Wrinkles and sagging occur when collagen and elastin in the skin begin to break down and not function or replenish as they once did. This makes the skin more likely to sag and wrinkle.

A facelift procedure, also known as a rhytidectomy, can tighten loose muscles and excess skin in the neck and face, resulting in a younger and perkier look. Traditional facelift procedures utilize an incision that runs hidden along the hairline.

Facelift techniques vary and are customized to match the patient’s cosmetic desires. When opting for a facelift, it’s good to know that there are several technique options that you and Dr. James Ridgway can discuss during the initial consultation.

If you would like to know more about facelift details, contact Dr. Ridgway at his Bellevue location today to set up an appointment.
