Over time, the collagen in skin breaks down and creates skin that sags and wrinkles. Facial Bones resorb and lose projection and youthful shape. Facial fat pads droop and drop to lower position, and resorb to become less full. This can cause hollowing and sagging to the face. This leads to the creases and wrinkles that causes many people to seek out a way to look better and to feel more confident about their looks.
A facelift procedure from by Dr. Smith is one way to do just that. A facelift changes the way your face looks by taking out some of the extra skin that is causing the sagging effect.
