Face Lift Surgery

Aging is a natural and unavoidable process. Who can escape it? Not even your favorite celebrities! The signs of aging are first seen on the face as the skin loses its elasticity and firmness. This might bring down one’s confidence as a youthful appearance is lost with wrinkles and loose skin. There are all sorts of quick fixes available in the market to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate skin like face lift tape, face creams, lotions, etc. But these often do not work, or they may cause problems in the long term. Face lift tapes, in particular, can accelerate the signs of aging if used for a long time. 

Although we don’t have a solution to stop aging, we do have an alternative to reduce the signs of aging in their tracks and have a taut, firm, and contoured face.

Dr. Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic restores your youthful appearance with a facelift.
