A facelift is performed to correct wrinkling, sagging, or otherwise loose skin on the lower one-half of the face. Mature adults often experience this visual sign of aging, and it’s caused primarily by fatty deposits, poor skin support, and a loss of collagen in the skin itself. Once the skin is drooping or showing moderate to severe creasing and folding, traditionally popular cosmetic fixes such as dermabrasion and chemical peels don’t do much to help.
The benefits of a facelift are many and include tighter skin with less wrinkling, a more youthful overall appearance, and long-lasting results. The latter of these three is the most important. The procedure may not have to be repeated for multiple years. We encourage you to learn more about the benefits of a facelift cosmetic procedure and why it’s actually a much simpler, easy-to-perform treatment than you may have been led to believe.
A Closer Look at the Procedure
As the name implies, the visual appearance of the face after this procedure is completed is one of lifting and tightening. The skin looks like it has been pulled upward and smoothed. That is exactly what occurs during a facelift procedure. However, the traditional facelift, where the entire skin surface on the lower face is raised, may not always be necessary in order to achieve the desired result. As such, the details of each facelift procedure vary from patient to patient.
Consulting with the Client
As you can see, we need to consult with the client beforehand to determine whether or not a facelift procedure will likely yield the most desired result. Whichever method is chosen, we will give the client an information packet so that they can prepare for the surgery.
A facelift can be performed without concern about the skin tone or texture. The skin isn’t bleached or subjected to abrasion, so the overall tone or thickness of the skin doesn’t matter. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, a facelift won’t cause bumpiness. In fact, it’s by far the best way to smooth the skin and keep it smooth for years.
