Our face is an important part of our body. It identifies us, we greet the world with our smiling faces, and so much of human communication takes place with the interaction of our face.
However, with time, sun exposure, gravity, and the stress of daily life change the appearance of our faces. No longer do we have to accept the splotchy, uneven skin that comes from overexposure to the sun, or the deep creases or signs of jowling or hanging tissue around the neck, so often seen in our grandparents and are seen as signs of aging.
Facial Plastic Surgery in Michigan
If you are unhappy with an aspect of your facial appearance, chances are Dr. Sampson has a cosmetic surgery technique he can use to rejuvenate your look. One of the most popular options at his practice is called a facelift, which helps Michigan residents smooth and refresh the lower half of the face and neck. Over the past few years different types of facelifts have been developed, including the mini-facelift which continues to gain in popularity. Facelifts are usually indicated for patients over 40 years of age, and is performed by placing incisions in front of and behind the ear. The skin is lifted and retracted, as is the tissue underlying the skin. The excess skin is removed and the underlying tissue is tightened, then the skin is sutured closed.
A facelift is just one of the more popular facial cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. John Sampson. Other options include eyelid surgery, a procedure also know as blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery can correct loose skin, wrinkles, and bagginess above and below the eye to achieve a more youthful complexion. Dr. Sampson also performs brow lift plastic surgery to smooth and lift the appearance of a tired and aged forehead.
