What Are The Benefits of a Facelift?
As we get older, we start to notice things
about ourselves that make us look older than we feel. Our skin begins to
loosen and sag, our facial muscles are not nearly as tight as they used
to be, and we may find that we have more wrinkles and lines. But there
is a way to turn back the hands of time. What better way to enhance your
face, and look as youthful as you see yourself, than with a facelift!
Facelifts are by far one of the best ways to restore a
fresher appearance. Over time, facelifts have become more advanced and
the process continues to improve. A facelift is an extensive procedure,
as surgeons now have the ability to give a more natural-looking result
than ever before by addressing muscles and facial contour.
Improving facial contour is a big benefit. During your
first examination, the surgeon will examine your facial structure and
determine if changes should be made to enhance your jaw line, or if some
minor liposuction can be done to reduce a sagging neck or other
unattractive feature that has snuck up on you with the passage of time.
Facial muscles are typically reconfigured as well, to
help reduce the risk of the dreaded “wind-tunnel” look that used to be
common after a facelift. Working on the sub-muscular area underneath the
skin, such as around the cheek bones, the surgeon can impart a more
youthful appearance to your face, and increase the length of time in
which the facelift will last.
Most importantly, facelifts help correct drooping skin
on your face that has loosened with age. By pulling the facial skin
upwards towards the scalp, the plastic surgeon tightens the face and
lessens the appearance of wrinkles from sagging skin.
