As you grow older, changes are noticed in the facial appearance and you start looking ‘tired’ and ‘old’. The elasticity of the skin in the neck and lower part of the face is lost and sagging is noticed. This results in folds, lines and wrinkles. Many men and women are distressed about the loss of their youthful appearance. However, with much advancement in medical technology, restoring youthful looks is now possible with procedures such as rhytidectomy, which is another name for facelift surgery. Only a qualified experienced and surgeon can ensure a successful surgery. You also have to ensure that the surgical procedure is provided at a reliable and reputable plastic surgery facility.

Signs of Aging Can Be Reduced with Face Lift

As a person ages, wrinkles and folds are caused due to loss of soft tissues and collagen. Owing to this various problems are noticed such as loss of fullness in the cheekbone area, loose folds of skin in the neck, formation of jowls and deepening of creases that run from the nose to the mouth. There are various external factors that accelerate these effects of heredity and gravity. These factors include changes in weight, excess exposure to sun, stress, smoking, alcohol and pollution. Depending on specific issues, various procedures can be chosen such as skin-only lift, mini facelift, dual plane lift, lower face lift, composite lift and mid-facial lift.

With facelift surgery, excess fat and skin is removed, muscles are tightened and the facial skin and fat is redistributed. The facial muscular tissues are elevated as well. It helps a person to look more youthful since the following major issues are effectively addressed:

  • Deep creases under the lower eyelids
  • Lines that run from the nose to mouth
  • Displaced or fallen fat
  • Jowls that are caused owing to loss of muscle tone
  • Excess fat and loose skin under the chin and jaw

You should keep in mind that facial cosmetic procedures aren’t an answer to aging. The face continues to age but with face lift, the aging process can be set back by several years. With this surgery, the face is rejuvenated and you start looking fresher and younger. If an expert is chosen for performing the procedure, the results are expected to last long. Sometimes, the surgeon may recommend procedures such as rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and brow lift for improving the looks. If the best results are desired, then it is important to choose the right plastic surgeon. Always choose a surgeon after considering his board certification and experience in providing facelift surgery.
