Facelift surgery is a procedure that could provide improvement to sagging skin, double chin or other cosmetic facial concerns.
There are various types of facelift procedures. They can be minimally invasive or quite extensive. The basics of the procedure involve removing excess skin and tightening the tissue and muscle underneath, finally pulling the skin taut and applying sutures to hold it in place.
When to Consider Facelift Surgery
You may be wondering if facelift surgery is right for you. There are some things to consider when making your decision. If you would like to restore an overall younger-looking appearance to your face, a facelift may be a good choice for you as it could provide more improvements than other treatments meant to target specific facial areas.
A facelift procedure may be suitable for those who may be experiencing some sagging, but who still possess the elasticity needed to be manipulated during the surgery.
Patients may decide to go for a facelift surgery when they are not happy with their appearance and could have realistic expectations that a bit of improvement could help them to feel more confident.
About the Procedure
Some patients may opt for a facelift because it could correct a number of problematic issues. It may not require repeat sessions and could last for years. Facelift may also be advantageous due to the results it could produce. This surgical technique may be the most effective when it comes to jawline and neck contouring.
A facelift may not completely alter your appearance. The results could be more comparable to a younger-looking you. You may also need to be aware that this could be a major surgery and it could come along with significant recovery time.
What to Expect
During your consultation, we will talk to you about the type of facelift surgery that could be best for you based upon your needs and your unique facial characteristics. Most facelift surgeries may have incisions. They can be along the hairline and the ears in order to be less noticeable.
Sometimes, small incisions may also be made around the lips, chin, eyelids, temples or behind the scalp.
