Facelift Surgery Benefits
With age comes wisdom. But along with wisdom we may also find that our skin begins to sag, adding additional years to our appearance. A facelift (rhytidectomy) can help to erase some of those years leaving you with a younger, more refreshed appearance while maintaining the integrity of your natural facial contours. Known for her natural aesthetic and careful consideration of her patient’s desires, Dr. Margoles’ patients never have that frozen or surprised look we’ve all come to identify with too much surgery. Instead you’ll have a natural, youthful, refreshed look. A facelift with Dr. Margoles will leave you with a youthful, beautifully enhanced look and little to no visible scarring. The results of a facelift can last for many years. To achieve the most desirable benefits some patients also chose to have a neck lift and/or eyelid surgery.
