Facelifts

A facelift, otherwise known as rhytidectomy, lifts and firms sagging facial tissues to restore a more naturally youthful facial appearance. It also improves the signs of aging on both the face and neck. This procedure removes excess skin and tightens facial muscles thus diminishing lines and wrinkles, reducing sagging skin around the neck and jowls and creates a more youthful appearance.

 

If any of the following describe you, a facelift is an option to consider:

  • You feel self-conscious about the way your face and neck look due to sagging skin
  • You wear turtlenecks and scarves not because you want to, but because you want to hide your aging neck
  • When you see your reflection, you feel that your face makes you look much older than you feel
  • You feel that an aging appearance is negatively affecting your career or personal relationships

 

Our team at Beyond MedSpa is dedicated to providing a comforting and welcoming atmosphere, as well as providing a thorough, in-depth analysis of your face, and every consultation and procedure is centered on your individual needs as a patient.

 

Frequently Asked Questions about Facelifts at Beyond MedSpa

 

What will my recovery time be?

Most facelifts are done on an outpatient basis. They can be performed with sedation or under general anesthesia.

Who is a candidate for Facelift Plastic Surgery?

Almost everyone sees the effects of aging or gravity on the skin. Skin can sag or wrinkle from stress, sun exposure, smoking or simply due to genetics. Time can make skin and soft tissue lose elasticity, creating a tired look, light lines or deep lines around the mouth and jowls. Skin can also loosen around the neck, causing a sagging appearance. Facelift procedures remove excess skin and fat, contouring the jaw and jowls and softening lines.

There are also a number of physical factors that make a patient an excellent facelift candidate. One is skin elasticity. Skin that retains at least some natural flexibility and suppleness is best. As your surgeon tightens facial skin to reduce wrinkles, skin that can conform to its new shape will produce the most optimal results.

Having a strong bone structure is also important, as bones offer the support necessary to create long-lasting results. Candidates whose features are less-defined may wish to consider additional treatments, such as facial implants, fat transfer or fillers. Having loose skin on the face or neck is also a key factor for facelift surgery – as the surgeon trims loose skin during the procedure, having excess skin to remove will reduce the appearance of wrinkles simultaneously. Naturally, having good over-all health is important as well. Discussing any pre-existing conditions with your surgeon is key to a successful procedure, healing and recovery.

Are facelifts only for women?

Facelift procedures aren’t just for women. Men can also greatly benefit from a facelift. The steps involved in any facelift procedure are essentially identical for both sexes.
