A facelift is a common surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of ageing in the face and neck. The effects of gravity, sun damage and the stresses of everyday life become apparent over time and can alter your appearance.
A facelift is designed to make you look and feel more radiant and confident, rather than making you look like another person.
At a glance, here’s some of the reasons our patients have chosen a facelift.
Allows You to Age Gracefully
As we age, our face is one of the first areas to be affected. With the natural decline of collagen production and skin quality as patients get older, the facial skin and musculature can relax and lose its supportive structure as a result of thinning dermal tissue.
Facelift surgery may allow you to age more gracefully and slowly due to the skin and muscles being tightened, leaving you with skin that is firmer and more refreshed.
A facelift can restore a more natural and youthful appearance to your face by addressing the ageing process, improving common age concerns and rebuilding overall loss of facial definition.
Improves Sagging Facial Skin
With age, the underlying structure of your face tends to weaken and sag, with changes commonly occurring in the mid and lower portions of the face due to the downward descent of facial fat and skin.
Restorative surgery can improve sagging facial skin and loose neck skin by removing excess fat and tightening underlying tissue and muscle. This works using undermining, where the skin is separated from underlying muscles and tissues which allows us to repair loose skin by tightening and rearranging the underlying structure.
This reconfiguration puts less tension on the skin and enables the results of your face lift to last much longer, meaning you can enjoy a refreshed appearance with a well-defined jawline and neck for longer.
Smooths and Firms the Skin
Cosmetic procedures of the face can remove frown lines, smooth deep lines and eliminate folds. These concerns are minimised as the skin is repositioned, tightened and re-draped over the face, with excess skin being trimmed which smooths away wrinkles and firms the skin.
Common deep creases that we experience are from the nose to the corners of the mouth, known as nasolabial folds, as well as lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin, referred to as marionette lines, can be improved with facelift surgery.
Surgery can reduce wrinkles and sagging in your facial skin, while we can also individually discuss and focus on areas such as the forehead, cheek area, eye area, neckline and jowls.
Leaves You Looking Refreshed
The loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone around the face and neck may leave you with a constant expression of being tired and tense.
A face lift may be just the thing for you if you’re after an energetic, invigorated facial appearance with natural looking results.
Continuous advancements in cosmetic procedure techniques have improved and shifted from merely tightening the skin to repositioning underlying tissue to create a more natural appearance. The re-draping of the skin and reduction of facial fat will reveal a more natural and relaxed appearance that you will be more satisfied with now and in the future.
