Skin Quality and Facelift Results

plastic surgery lafayette

At my plastic surgery practice in Lafayette, I perform a large number of facelift surgeries. One thing I always educate my patients about is the benefit of including skin treatments with their facial plastic surgery.

The absence of sagging skin is only one component of a youthful complexion. Facelift surgery addresses this redundant, or excess, skin, but it doesn’t improve the tone, texture, or elasticity of the skin that remains. A treatment such as laser skin resurfacing, when combined with a facelift, can treat those issues and provide a more comprehensive effect.

As skin ages, collagen breaks down and skin loses its firmness. The texture of the skin may become crepey and characterized by fine lines. Laser skin resurfacing revitalizes the skin by promoting collagen production, enhancing and prolonging the results of a facelift.
