Aging is a fact of life. However, some people age more gracefully than others. There are many reasons for this such as some people are more susceptible to the early development of fine lines and wrinkles due to stress, sun damage, smoking, and other lifestyle and hereditary factors. Your face naturally loses cheek volume as you get older. Sagging skin can contribute to deep folds around the mouth and loose skin in the chin and neck area. The good news is that plastic surgery procedures such as the facelift can reverse some of the damage the aging process has wreaked on your appearance.

There were 125,696 facelift procedures performed in the United States in 2017, and a total of 17.5 million plastic surgeries according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ plastic surgery statistics. These numbers continue to rise each year with emerging techniques and treatments that offer subtle but substantial improvements, so you can look younger without appearing like you’ve had work done.
A facelift can improve and enhance a youthful appearance in several ways, including:
- Gently lifting the skin to restore position
- Providing a smoother, healthier, and more youthful look
- Remarkably improving deep folds and wrinkles
- Tightening the skin along the neck and jawline to reduce loose, sagging skin or “turkey neck”
- Restoring volume to the cheeks and other areas where age has caused displaced fat
How to Customize Your Facial Plastic Surgery in Houston
Our board-certified plastic surgeon believes your facial plastic surgery should be customized to suit your individual goals for your appearance. Not every man or woman has the same problem with their face as the elements that caused your wrinkles may have resulted in different changes for someone else. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will discuss your options and how to achieve your ideal outcome. Dr. Kutty may recommend combining your facelift with one or more of these facial plastic surgeries:
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
- Brow lift (forehead lift)
- Chin or cheek implants
- Lip implants
- Fat transfer
- Non-invasive cosmetic treatments (injectable fillers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, etc.)
How a Facelift is Performed
Facelift surgery is performed by creating small incisions near the ear, one of which is typically behind the “tragus,” the small cartilage in front of your ear canal. The others are created above and below that area and are short incisions. The resulting scars will fade nicely over time.
This procedure requires delicate hands as it demands precise dissection near essential anatomic structures, so it’s crucial you have an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Kutty perform your facelift. A skilled plastic surgeon enhances your appearance to provide a younger look that doesn’t look obvious or “too tight,” which is usually an indicator someone has had cosmetic enhancements.
Candidates for facelifts should be in good overall health with no health conditions that inhibit healing. You should also be a nonsmoker and have realistic expectations for your results.
