Face Lift Surgery – As people get older, there are predictable changes which occur as a result of time, gravity and sun exposure that lead to changes in facial appearance usually associated with “aging”. The degree of aging varies greatly from one person to next, depending upon many factors. Skin type of the patient will greatly determine how “well” they age over time. Patients with darker and oilier skin tend to age less rapidly than patients with fair complexions. Sun exposure greatly speeds up the “aging process”. Cigarette smoking is another factor that causes acceleration of the aging process of the face. There are many procedures available for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Handel of Santa Barbara has performed facial rejuvenation surgery for nearly 40 years and has a track record of proven results.
Face lift surgery (aka rhytidectomy) removes many of the visible signs of aging in the face and neck and restores a younger appearance.
