Face & Neck Lift in the Chicago North Shore

A facelift can address imbalances without altering the natural expression of the face. As we get older, aging and gravity lead to the inevitable: the structures of the face begin to shift and we look much different than we once did. Even slight imbalances to the delicate skin and fat tissues of the face can cause a disconnect between how we feel on the inside and how we look on the outside. Excess skin tissue in one direction or another disturbs the general balance of the delicate facial features.

A facelift surgery refers to a procedure that re-adjusts excess loose skin specifically around the lower third of the face. Over time, skin can become slack and jowly; a Facelift can remove skin folds and fats pads around the chin and neck to achieve a more youthful appearance. “Just as no face is the same, similarly, no facelift is the same,” explains Dr. Anthony Geroulis, board-certified cosmetic surgeon of the North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. “Facelift surgery, when performed with finesse, restores the ‘you’ from a few years ago. There is much analysis and detailed planning that is integral to facelift surgery to provide a natural and youthful look that flows seamlessly in harmony with the specific bone structure and individuality of the facial features.”
