Today, more people than ever before are opting for facelifts. Whether it is liquid facelifts like Botox Treatment and dermal fillers, or surgical facelifts, people understand the value of getting a facelift.
The Value of a Facelift
The face being most susceptible to the environment makes it sag and, as you age, it loses volume. This is because of the ligaments connecting the various layers of face lax. This makes the skin sag and causes the downward movement of fat, creating a very hollow and old look.
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that tightens your face and makes it youthful. As one of the oldest cosmetic surgeries, it has significantly evolved and now consists of several methods and techniques, each more precise and intricate than the last. Depending on your needs, your plastic surgeon will bring you the right combination of procedures.
What to Expect from a Facelift Procedure
The various aims of a facelift procedure are:
- To lift the corners of the mouth
- To reduce the creases between the cheeks and the lips
- To reduces the droop of the cheeks around the jawline
- To remove and tighten sagging skin
Achieving all this takes the necessary techniques and equipment. Luckily, today, the progress that cosmetic surgery technology has made makes this entire procedure painless and easy.
For example, reducing the droop of the cheeks may not be enough. Hollow cheeks need volume. This is achieved through fat grafting. Which, in turn, requires liposuction. With power-assisted and ultrasound-assisted liposuction, fat grafting is painless and minimally traumatic, ensuring that a large amount of harvested fat can be reused.
The modern facelift uses the natural contours of your face for the best results. This includes following the contour of your ear during an incision and tightening the underlying SMAS instead of the skin. These contribute to very natural-looking results.
That said, these results are not fully visible immediately. There is swelling and bruising due to the surgery. This dies down with time, and scars slowly fade. It can take up to or over a year to see the actual final result. But the recovery process is painless, and the swelling and bruising die down rather quickly.
Therefore, although the ultimate result takes time, your face gets a little better and more natural-looking every day until, finally, the healing stops and the rest of your life with a new, youthful face begins!
