Look Younger Longer With a Facelift

Posted April 12, 2016 in Facelift Surgery

Before and After FaceliftHave you ever looked in a mirror and thought, “How long has that wrinkle been there?” or “When did my face start sagging?” If this sounds familiar to you, you will be pleased to hear that facelift surgery can help you. Getting a facelift will improve the appearance of your face and help you look younger longer.

The Modern Facelift

The modern facelift has advanced far beyond the old technique of pulling the skin tight and creating an unnaturally windswept appearance. Today’s facelift procedure is informed by our scientifically improved understanding of how facial aging occurs. Facial aging is influenced by the following factors: the loss of facial fat, bone, and gum; gravity and the loss of muscle and skin tone; and skin wrinkling and pigment changes. Consequently, the modern facelift targets all three of these conditions. Facelift surgery can reposition the sagging soft tissues, fill in lost facial volume with your own harvested fat, and resurface your skin with skin care treatments.

The Anti-Aging Benefits of a Facelift

These three focuses of the modern facelift help you to look younger longer. Lifting the skin of the face and neck to correct skin laxity restores a more youthful appearance. The procedure is performed with careful attention to the natural shape of your face, and by highlighting your natural facial contours, facelift surgery can bring out a more youthful shape.

Additionally, a restoration of facial volume loss balances out areas of depression to create more youthful firmness and softness. The restoration of volume loss involves fat harvesting, in which liposuction extracts fat from elsewhere on your body and purifies it for reinjection into your face. This redistribution of fat helps to improve your facial contour as well as your body contour.

Finally, skin resurfacing and skin care treatments turn back the clock and help stimulate collagen production, which improves skin quality over time. Consequently, the results of your facelift will continue to improve as time passes. Most importantly, even as the years pass by, the results of your procedure will guarantee that you have a more youthful appearance long term. You will continue to look better throughout your life than you would have if you had not undergone facelift surgery.
