The aging process can be challenging to accept. It’s natural to want to look and feel as young and vibrant as possible, and facial rejuvenation surgery may be the answer. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that can help you turn back the clock on your appearance. Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Arcadia, CA, provides the most experienced hands in the business regarding this life-changing plastic surgery procedure. Read on to learn more about how a facelift is done and why it may be right for you.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to improve facial skin laxity, wrinkles, and other signs of aging around the eyes, cheeks, jawline, and neck. This comprehensive approach tightens underlying tissues of the face and neck through incisions made in strategic areas such as behind the ears or within the hairline. The goal of any facelift is to create a more refreshed look with natural-looking results that can last for years if properly maintained.
What Are the Types of Facelift Procedures We Offer?
We all want to look our best and feel good about ourselves, but aging can become more challenging. Loss of muscle tone, wrinkles in the face, volume loss – these are issues that often lead patients to seek a solution like a facelift. But with so many options available now – from mini facelifts to large-scale reconstructions designed for serious aging concerns – it’s hard to know which might be right for you. Here are some of the facelift procedures we provide:
A full facelift usually involves making larger incisions along the hairline at the temples reaching around to behind each earlobe. Through these incisions, excess skin can be removed from around areas like sagging jowls or deep line creases before being tightened with strong sutures for an overall improved facial contour.
A mini facelift focuses on improving only certain areas of concern by making smaller incisions near the ear that follow along with their curves into either the sideburn area or temple region, depending on what needs addressing most severely. This type of procedure is best suited for those with milder signs of aging, such as drooping skin under the chin or soft wrinkles around their mouth or forehead regions that require smaller amounts of area adjustment than an entire full-face lift would necessitate
Deep Plane Facelift
This particular variation might be an ideal choice for those looking for even more dramatic results than what a typical mini-facelift offers. Instead, this procedure utilizes shorter incisions that require less tissue removal to eliminate sagging while still providing visible improvements without altering other features too drastically, which can lead to unwanted changes in one’s appearance over time.
What Are the Benefits of Facelifts?
Facelifts can be a great way to improve one’s facial appearance and help reduce the signs of aging that occur over time. The facelift procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles and tissues in order to bring back a more youthful look. It can also be used to enhance existing features, correct asymmetry, or restore balance between different elements of the face. Many people have reported experiencing improved confidence after undergoing facelift surgery, as well as a renewed sense of youthful vigor. With facelift surgery, it’s now possible to stop the clock on visible signs of aging while achieving an elegant new look.
What Happens During a Facelift Procedure?
On the day of your facelift procedure, you can expect to spend two to five hours in our office, depending on the procedure you’re receiving. We will review any necessary information with you before we administer anesthesia. With a full facelift and deep plane facelift, general anesthesia is used for your safety and comfort during the surgery. However, a mini facelift can be done through local anesthetic. We are committed to ensuring all patients have the best facelift results possible. That is why we take special care when deciding on the anesthesia for each facelift surgery.
What Happens After a Facelift?
After your facelift procedure and the placement of bandages, keeping them dry until they are due to be removed during your first follow-up appointment is vital. Cleaning and aftercare instructions will be provided, along with a timeline of what to expect as your facelift surgery heals over time.
Generally speaking, mini facelifts require two to four weeks, while full or deep plane facelifts require four to six weeks for complete healing. Following proper aftercare instructions and managing expectations can help ensure your facelift looks precisely how you want!
What Makes a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
The best way to know if facelift surgery is right for you is through a consultation with the experienced surgeons at our practice. During this consultation, we will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy and ask about your aesthetic goals before making any recommendations regarding facelift surgery. Ultimately, we are committed to helping you achieve natural-looking results that can bring greater confidence and pride in your appearance!
