Facelifts Are Not Enough
A facelift is a procedure that is performed on the soft tissue of the face. Skin, muscles, fat, and other tissues are cut away from their attachments and stretched over the bone in an attempt to create a more youthful appearance. However, this can often result in an unnatural appearance. In part, this is because the directions of stretching and stress may not reflect the natural attachments and draping of skin. It also doesn’t reverse the changes in bone structure that contribute to an aged appearance.
In order to achieve a more youthful and natural appearance, your Baulkham Hills dentist must restore the volume lost in the jaw and attempt to prevent or reverse changes in the jaw angle.
This is one of many reasons that FOY® Dentures are capable of making people look many years younger and may work better than a surgical facelift in some cases. Traditional dentures typically seek only to replace lost teeth. They don’t adequately replace lost bone in the jaw, leaving you with reduced facial volume that contributes to sagging, wrinkles, jowls, double chin, turkey neck, and more common symptoms of facial aging.
The firm fit of FOY® Dentures also helps restore bite force, which encourages the retention of jaw muscles. Jaw muscles are the largest in the head, so if they shrink, it leads to even more lost volume in the face.
