Can a Facelift Deliver the Results You Desire?
Posted December 07, 2023 in Face Lift
If you are experiencing sagging skin, pronounced creases in the nasolabial folds, and overall signs of exhaustion and aging that you don’t believe match how you really feel inside, you might be ready for a facelift. However, not all facelifts are created equal— facial rejuvenation options can be combined for an entirely customized surgical result.
What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?
For many, facelift surgery is the ideal facial rejuvenation procedure. There is a reason it is still one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to date.
A facelift can:
- Smooth wrinkles and creases
- Lift the mid-to-low face
- Tighten loose and sagging skin around the mouth, cheeks, and jawline
- Eliminate excess skin that causes wrinkles
A facelift targets the mid-lower face and can create a more youthful, vibrant appearance like no other procedure.
The key to a natural, satisfying surgical result is harmony. When you see a cosmetic surgical result that is undesirable or looks unnatural, it can be due in part to overly enhancing one area of the face and leaving the rest, resulting in a discordant and unbalanced appearance.
To enjoy the benefits of your facelift fully so that it is part of an overall facial rejuvenation, you may wish to combine it with another facial surgery that can create a more symmetrical appearance.
What Facial Surgeries Can I Combine With My Facelift?
There are a few cosmetic procedures that complement the facelift. Many patients assume that they need a facelift if they see any signs of aging. But there are so many options that can improve the facial appearance that are less well-known but have equally stunning results.
In many cases, the neck, which has often suffered more sun exposure than your face, shows the most signs of aging. This contrast is especially stark if someone remedies wrinkles with a facelift without considering treatment of the neck.
A neck lift can:
- Eliminate sagging jowls
- Tighten and smooth a wrinkled, banded neck
- Sculpt and contour the jawline
Combining your neck lift with a facelift allows you to expect a complete facial rejuvenation that creates a more harmonious, balanced result. Enhancing the neck and face together makes your youthful appearance more natural yet dramatic.
Eyelid Lift with Brow Lift
Many people underestimate the eyes’ impact on the rest of the face: sagging, puffy eyes can communicate a more tired or angry countenance, resulting in a haggard appearance. Additionally, the brows can contribute to this effect if they have lost elasticity or muscle tension. Sagging, furrowed brows are another sign of exhaustion that can negatively impact the face’s overall appearance.
Combining your eyelid lift with a brow lift can raise, brighten, and revive the upper face for a more energetic, youthful appearance.
Additionally, a combo eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and brow lift can:
- Eliminate lines between the brows
- Lift sagging brows
- Reduce the appearance of fatty tissue under the eyes (puffiness)
- Create a more alert appearance
This combination surgery is easily paired with any other facial rejuvenation procedure, including a neck lift and facelift.
Choosing the Right Procedure for You
It may be challenging to determine what procedure is ideal for your needs, so choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential to help guide your decision.
An experienced and knowledgeable plastic surgeon does more than perform surgery. That expert practitioner should also have an eye for balance and beauty; advising patients during an individual consultation is a crucial step in any cosmetic procedure.
