About Facelift Surgery
Facelift surgery is a great option to consider if you would like to get rid of lines and wrinkles located in the middle portion of the face. The procedure involves incisions that are hidden behind the ears and along the lower portion of the hairline, allowing a plastic surgeon to adjust underlying structures and to remove loose skin, pulling the remaining facial skin tighter.
General Candidacy for Facelift
Ideal candidates for facelift are people who are in good overall health and would like to improve the appearance of their face. They should not suffer from any kinds of medical conditions that would make surgery of any sort a possible risk to overall health and wellness.
Facelifts Are Ideal for the Middle Portion of the Face
If you are going to undergo a facelift, it's important that you know it's only to target the middle portion of the face. This means the upper cheeks and the corners of the eyes. Other surgeries can be performed in order to treat other parts of the face and ensure the best possible results with regard to facial rejuvenation.
Realistic Expectations Are Important
While there are many great advantages to undergoing a facelift, it's important that patients know all of the risks and benefits that are involved in the procedure. This include the side effects during recovery as well as the potential for complications such as infection and excessive scarring. By knowing both the positives and negatives that are associated with surgery, patients are able to have a better overall experience.
Additional Facial Lift Procedures to Consider
If a facelift proves to be a poor treatment option for a patients needs, there are other surgeries available that may be helpful.
To address the lines of the forehead, for instance, performing a brow lift is a great option to consider. For the jowls and the lower parts of the cheeks, a good option is the lower facelift. In addition to these procedures, there is also the neck lift surgery, which can help reduce loose skin and sagging of the neckline and the underside of the chin.
Non-Surgical Alternatives to Facelift
If a facelift or any sort of surgical treatment proves to be a poor option for a patient, there are plenty of non-surgical treatments to consider that can reduce wrinkles and leave you looking years younger in the process.
The use of dermal filler injections can add volume to the injection sites, reducing wrinkles and making your face seem fuller and more rejuvenated. BOTOX® injections can also have a positive impact on the appearance, preventing muscle contractions in the injection site and reducing wrinkles that way.
During your consultation at the practice, you will receive ample information about all of your surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
