You may have considered getting a facelift because you’re dissatisfied with the way your jowls look or because you are annoyed at the more pronounced sagging of the skin on your cheeks. Perhaps your forehead is showing horizontal folds. Your neck may also contain folding, creased skin or the dreaded turkey wattle. The question is, will a facelift or other type of lift procedure correct these problems?
The answer may be yes. A facelift isn’t for everyone because each individual has different degrees of skin problems. A facelift is a surgical procedure that can correct the problem of sagging skin and dynamic wrinkling, but not all of us are ready to undergo this type of treatment. That’s why it’s best to schedule a consultation with us so that we can examine the face and neck closely. We’ll give you the facts about what a facelift can and cannot do to restore your facial features to a more youthful appearance.
During a traditional facelift, excess skin and some fat is removed and the remaining skin is tightened and lifted. The goal is to give the patient a younger-looking, more refreshed appearance. A facelift is a rather simple procedure, and because no foreign material is introduced, there is no chance of rejection. No new skin is grafted into place.
There is some downtime for the client following a facelift procedure. It is important to follow our team’s instructions for healing during this time for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered, you will be able to enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come. It is important to understand that results vary from patient to patient. The amount of facial smoothing that results depends on the overall shape of the face, the amount of muscle tissue that exists and the structure of the skull and facial bones, among other factors.
