A facelift is a surgical procedure that can help to correct problems with facial skin folds, creases, and wrinkles. Most individuals who choose this type of cosmetic surgery may have experienced disappointing results with abrasive resurfacing, chemical peels, or microneedling. Properly performed, a facelift could take years off your appearance, and the results may last for years to come. A traditional facelift can help to improve the texture and smoothness of the skin on the face. In most cases, a small amount of muscle tissue can be repositioned, and excess fat can be removed.
The Traditional Facelift
During the procedure, excess tissue or skin can be removed or repositioned. The procedure can work to target fine lines and wrinkles commonly found along and around your forehead, nose, mouth, and eyes. Mr. Salerno can work to smooth out your skin and facial muscles to minimize wrinkling and sagging. The result may be smoother skin with less wrinkling, creasing, drooping, or folding. The healing process varies from patient to patient.
When we consult with our clients, we outline the preparations that can be followed before the date of the surgery. Localized anesthetics may be used, so someone else may have to drive the client home after the surgery is completed. Bandages can be worn for up to a week after surgery. After the procedure, the client can follow our surgeon’s instructions for recovery. Once you have fully healed, you may be able to enjoy your youthful and vibrant visage for years to come.
The results may be long-lasting, and a repeat surgery may not be necessary for many years. Unlike chemical peels and abrasive resurfacing treatments, the skin itself is not affected, making this procedure suitable for nearly all skin types.
So long as the client understands the likely outcome and has realistic expectations, a facelift procedure may be a more effective solution to the problem of skin wrinkling and skin folds than peel treatments, laser treatments, and abrasive resurfacing procedures.
