Facts About Facelifts

It’s One of the Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedures – Facelift surgery has consistently been in the top 5-10 most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. Other popular procedures include liposuction, abdominoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast lift surgery and breast augmentation.

It Can Be Combined with Other Procedures – Facelift surgery can achieve great results for patients, but it can really do wonders when combined with other cosmetic procedures. That’s why sometimes patients combine the procedure with other types of plastic surgery. Facelift surgery may be combined with the following procedures:

  • Brow lift
  • Neck lift
  • Fat transfers
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Dermal fillers
  • Botox
  • Skin resurfacing

Facelifts are an Option for Both Men and Women – Face lift procedures are no longer the exclusive domain of women. The concept of a facelift for men is basically the same as in women, but the approach is tailored to highlight and sharpen the angular structures of the jaw, neck and chin, with less emphasis on crows’ feet lines, cheekbones and folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth. The appearance of fresh and sharp angular contours leads to a well-rested and relaxed appearance. This also translates to a healthier look and more youthful appearance.

It Won’t Stop You from Aging – One of the most important things to remember when you decide to undergo any sort of plastic surgery is to understand the limitations and manage your expectations. Will a facelift give you a more youthful, smoother look? Absolutely. Will it stop the aging process altogether? Of course not. A facelift is designed to turn back the clock, and although the results are considered permanent, it is impossible to stop your body (and skin) from aging. You may eventually need a touch-up here and there – fillers, facial treatments, etc. – but for the most part, with diligent skin care, sun protection and a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain your younger appearance for a long time to come.
