Sun exposure, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process make skin loosen and sag, which results in wrinkles and jowls on a once youthful, vibrant face. A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to restore your youthful appearance by eliminating wrinkles and drooping, slackened skin, which add years to your once vigorous appearance, making you look older than you feel. Fresh, taut skin fashioned by the skilled hands of Dr. Yessenow can make you look years younger! During the facelift procedure performed by Dr. Yessenow, he makes discreet incisions along the hairline, ears, or chin, so that excess fat, tissue, and skin is lifted and removed. The remaining skin is then smoothed, tightened, and carefully stitched in place. Dr. Yessenow, who has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 1993, places the incisions so that they are inconspicuous, even with the hair pulled up. For even more beautiful results, a facelift is often performed in conjunction with other surgeries, such as eye lifts and lip enhancement. The effects of a facelift can last for years, and, in some cases, for decades.
Dr. Yessenow also performs many types of newer, more limited facelift procedures for the appropriate candidates. These have the advantage of a quicker recovery and less invasive procedure.
