Facelift Surgery and its Major Areas


You already know about facelifts; that is why you are here. Therefore it is not required to define what a facelift is, but you now need to know the nitty gritty details. Facelifts are their own separate sector of cosmetic surgery, and within that sector, there are many sub-sections involved. A facelift can be applied to three major sections of the face - upper, mid and lower. If you want to undergo the process, you should understand these three major areas to understand the most suitable one/or ones for you. And once you see our professionals in OKC you will understand facelifts specifically pertaining to you. 

The Difference Between Each Technique

Before understanding the difference between facelift techniques, you should learn the terms upper face, midface and lower face. The upper face includes the part that is above your eyes; from the eyebrows up to the forehead. The midface incorporates the part of your face from your eyebrows down to your mouth; your nose and cheeks are in the midface zone. Your lower face includes the area below your mouth. Your laugh lines or technically, nasolabial folds, and jawline are the main focus areas here. In some case, the area beneath the chin is also included in the lower face area.

Not only in OKC but throughout the globe, there’s a common assumption that a general facelift works for all of these areas as a whole, but the fact is, the surgery targets the mid and lower facial areas. It focuses on features below about where the top of a pair of glasses would be on your face. The upper facelift is a completely different process that lifts the browline. Depending on what the patient needs, it is performed either on its own or together with other facelift surgeries.

What Is The Most Suitable One for You?

After the first step of knowing the terminology, you will need to know which one is most suitable for your needs and preferences. It cannot be assumed or generalized without an in-person meeting. Before the surgery, you need to undergo several tests to be sure of your present medical condition. Only after that, the professionals will perform the facelift in OKC, as per what you are looking for.
