As you get older, you lose the youthful appearance that may underline your entire identity. You no longer have the firm skin, tight appearance and toned look of your younger years. This loss can be temporary, however, if you choose to undergo a facelift. You can decide if this procedure is right for you by learning how it is done and what you can expect from it. If you are in the Melbourne or surrounding areas and considering undergoing this cosmetic surgery, our plastic surgeon can help you learn about it in greater detail.
What Is a Facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that significantly eases or eliminates the signs of aging on your face and neck. It can also address other cosmetic issues such as the following:
- relaxation of the face
- deepening of fold lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth
- fat that has fallen or disappeared from your face
- loose skin and excess fat on your neck (double chin or turkey neck)
How Is a Facelift Performed?
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that will be customized according to your needs. While our plastic surgeon will strive to perform each procedure uniquely to match the patient’s desires, the process generally consists of lifting, tightening and repositioning the muscles in the face while removing excess fatty tissue and loose, sagging skin. The results can lead to a younger-looking appearance for the patient.
Good candidates for this procedure include those who are in generally good health but are unhappy with loose or sagging skin on the face or neck. If you are unsure if you make a good candidate, Mr. Salerno can help you find out during your initial consultation.
What to Expect
The length of each patient’s recovery period may vary depending on exactly what they would like to accomplish with their procedure, so Mr. Salerno will give you a better idea of what to expect during your consultation.
A facelift may be able to help you reclaim your youthful appearance. You can decide if you want to go through with this procedure and what results you can expect afterward by learning how and for what reasons it is performed.
