Facelift Surgery in Lubbock, TX by Dr. Eric Minns

While the aging process is unavoidable and affects everyone differently, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer from deep facial wrinkles or loose, sagging skin that make you look older than you feel. If you are noticing common signs of aging, it may be time to consider cosmetic treatment. At his Lubbock, TX plastic surgery office, Dr. Eric Minns offers facelifts that can take 10 years off your appearance and leave you with an image that reflects your energy level.

The Benefits of Facelift Surgery

Facelift Surgery in Lubbock, TX by Dr. Eric MinnsThe loosening and drooping of skin happens to everyone as they mature and tissues lose their elasticity – this creates issues in the mid-face, neck, chin, and jaw, which may make you look much older than your age. But a cosmetic facelift is capable of addressing these problem areas and restoring your youthful appearance. A facelift corrects instances of:

• Mid-face sagging
• Deep wrinkles and creases
• Loose skin
• Loss of muscle tone
• Jowls
• Double-chin from extra skin

With facelift treatment from Dr. Minns, you can erase these common signs of aging, which are especially prominent around the eyelids, sides of the nose and mouth, and along the chin and jaw. Whether your appearance has changed from stress or age, or you’ve been experiencing issues due to an inherited genetic trait, a facelift improves tightness and tone.

It’s important to note that a facelift won’t give you new features, such as reshaping your nose or other facial characteristic, or correct concerns related to skin damage from the sun; a facelift gives you a toned and firm appearance by fighting loose skin and drooping tissues.

What Happens During a Facelift?

Dr. Minns performs facelift surgery by making incisions at the hairline, or near the ears, which are discreet and won’t stand out after you’ve healed from treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Minns removes excess skin and some fat (if necessary) and repositions tissues to improve skin firmness and muscle tone. Facelifts are typically an out-patient surgery and bandages can be removed in an average of 3 days. At that time, you will likely feel comfortable resuming your normal social activities, but may need to refrain from strenuous activity for the next 3-5 weeks.

A facelift can dramatically improve instances of jowls, double-chin, and sagging skin, which a non-surgical facelift would not be able to target as efficiently. The result is the face you saw in the mirror 10 years ago.

Plastic Surgery Treatments for the Whole Face

Facelift treatment is targeted to the mid and lower face, as well as jowls and neck – if you are experiencing loose skin on your lower neck, drooping eyelids, or deep brow wrinkles, a facelift can be performed in conjunction with additional mid-face, eye, and brow treatments for a completely rejuvenated look. In additional to facelifts in Lubbock, Dr. Minns offers brow surgery, neck lifts, and eyelid surgery to address other problem areas in the upper face and neck.
