Years of treating the facial skin with moisturizers, light therapy, chemical peels, and dermabrasion has definitely worked to delay the inevitable. However, you’re now experiencing deeper folding and creasing, deeper wrinkles, and sagging due to fat buildup beneath the skin layers. The smooth contours you once enjoyed are gone. Can you get them back? Of course you can. A facelift can help restore your youthful features and smooth the skin on your cheeks and along the jawline.
The best thing about facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is the long-lasting result. Many of our clients report satisfactory results lasting for up to 10 years. Although rhytidectomy does involve surgery, advancements in technique have made this facial rejuvenation procedure safer than ever, and we feel more confident than ever before when predicting the expected outcome for our clients.
Advanced Facial Skin Repositioning
It’s not so much a skin ablation surgery as a repositioning procedure. In some cases, none of the facial skin is removed at all. Mostly it’s about lifting the skin away from the subcutaneous tissues and then repositioning or removing some fat and muscle tissue. This allows the skin to lay flatter when it’s draped back into place.
A facelift procedure is like a sculpting challenge for the skin surgeon. The surgeon wishes to create pleasing contours on the cheeks, jaws, and elsewhere in order to enhance the overall appearance. During the consultation, we will talk to you about this, and we’ll inform you on the different types of facial skin surgeries and why one of these is chosen as the best option.
The Longer-Lasting Solution
It takes quite a lot of time for removed fat to accumulate once more. Once the skin is tightened, it stays that way for years. This is why a facelift is so popular. In most cases, a follow-up surgery isn’t required, and although there’s a short recovery period, the individual doesn’t have to get in on some new, complicated at-home care regimen.
