Unfortunately, aging is an unavoidable fact of life. Facelifts are one of the most popular facial plastic surgery operations since we live in a society that values youth and energy.
A facelift is a surgical technique used to enhance the appearance of aging in the face and neck. In fact, a facelift is one of the most thorough operations for addressing many indications of aging on the jawline, lower face, and neck.
At Longevity Aesthetics and Laser Spa, we've compiled a list of unexpected benefits of a facelift to help you learn more about how a facelift can help you regain a bright, youthful appearance.
REMOVES WRINKLES AND SAGGY SKIN
A facelift is a restorative procedure that tightens and smoothes loose skin on the neck and lower face by “undermining” the skin from the underlying muscles and tissues. Skin is redraped over the face and excess skin is removed after the tissue and muscles under the skin have been realigned and tightened.
BOTH MEN AND WOMEN WILL BENEFIT FROM IT
Skin sags with age, regardless of gender. A facelift can benefit both men and women; in fact, male patients accounted for approximately 10% of all facelift surgeries in 2017.
SCARRING IS MINIMAL, IF AT ALL
The worry of visible scars is one of the factors that keeps people from getting a facelift. That is not the case, as great precisions and procedures are used to ensure that any scarring, if any, is undetectable.
RECOVERY TIME IS MINIMAL TO NON-EXISTENT
The recuperation time for facelifts is substantially shorter than it used to be, thanks to smaller incisions and new skin tightening procedures. The recuperation time is usually two to four weeks, and there aren't many bandages required.
RECONTOURS YOUR NECK AND JAWLINE
As we age, gravity, as well as the loss of facial fat and skin elasticity, tends to pull our skin down, resulting in sagging skin on the face. Loose skin hangs off the neck and jaw, resulting in jowls or a double chin. By removing extra skin and fatty deposits in these areas, a facelift can define a strong jawline.
A FACELIFT CAN BE PERFORMED AT ANY AGE
Many people have the misconception that facelifts are only advantageous to those who are older and have more advanced signs of aging. Patients who had a facelift in the previous year were most often between the ages of 51 and 64, however anyone with wrinkles and drooping skin can benefit from the surgery. Your overall health, skin condition, and lifestyle choices will determine if you are a good candidate for a facelift. Our surgeons can adapt your facelift to your wish and the correction required to achieve them, using a variety of procedures.
RESULTS WITH A NATURAL APPEARANCE
Gone are the days when facelift results appeared "windswept" or excessive. The focus of cosmetic surgery techniques has evolved away from simply tightening excess skin over your face and toward rearranging underlying tissue to give a more natural appearance. Our doctors are experts in reinstating youthful face contours and ensuring you look like yourself, only decades younger.
YOUTHFUL SKIN THAT LASTS A LONG TIME
How carefully you care for your skin after your treatment, as well as your genetics and lifestyle choices, will affect how long your facelift lasts. In general, though, you may expect your fresh, younger-looking skin to last for seven to 10 years on average. Once aging signs begin to sneak in again, you may choose a treatment to maintain your youthful vigor.
A facelift can boost your self-esteem as well as your confidence. If you're eager to learn more about the advantages of a facelift, Longevity Aesthetics and Laser Spa can assist you.
