Over time, internal forces such as stress and external forces like gravity and tobacco can affect the firmness of our face. The longer we’re exposed to these elements, the more likely we are to experience sagging, particularly in the mid-face. To combat these forces, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. JoAnne Lopes offers rhytidectomy surgery.

Rhytidectomy surgery can make you look significantly younger by removing loose skin and excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and rearranging tissue. In many cases, Dr. Lopes will combine this procedure with a brow or neck lift to provide more complete rejuvenation.

Decisions about which surgery techniques are best will be discussed in detail during your private consultation in our Virginia Beach office.
