Facelift Surgery in Wilmington, Supply, and Hampstead North Carolina
Facelift remains one of the most common plastic surgical procedures that Dr. Ricciardelli performs. Removing and tightening excess skin on the jawline and neckline and, more importantly, restoring cheek volume can take years off your appearance. The goal of a facelift is not only to lift and tighten loose skin, but also to elevate the underlying muscle and soft tissue back to a more youthful position. Dr. Ricciardelli has over 25 years of facial surgery experience and keenly aware of what is crucial in achieving a natural looking facelift.
“It’s important not to reduce the skin too much giving the face a too tight look. This will create a rippling effect when you smile. By restoring volume as well as tightening, I achieve a rested, gentle, natural look. You want to look refreshed.” says Dr. Ricciardelli.
There is no substitution for experience and understanding when you are considering facial surgery. No two faces age alike and Dr. Ricciardelli’s approach to your surgery will depend on the degree of changes. These aging changes can be exacerbated by sun exposure, stress and hereditary factors.
