What Exactly Does a Full Facelift Include?
By Coastal Cosmetic | Mar 01, 2019 | Blog, Facelift
Many people are aware of the age-defying benefits that a facelift can produce. A complicated and multi-faceted procedure, a full facelift uses advanced techniques to do much more than eliminate wrinkles. The reason so many people choose a facelift is that discreet incisions and lasting results set this treatment apart from other anti-aging treatments. People who desire subtle rejuvenation may not require a full facelift, but those who are looking for dramatic improvements may find that a full facelift has everything that they want.
What Is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that is popular for its ability to diminish or reverse visible signs of aging to the face, such as skin laxity, lines, and wrinkles. During the procedure, facial skin and muscles are toned and tightened, correcting any loose, sagging skin or loss of definition in the chin. The result is a rejuvenated and invigorated appearance.
How Is Facelift Surgery Performed?
To rejuvenate and create a more aesthetically pleasing facial contour, a plastic surgeon will begin the facelift procedure by lifting and tightening the underlying face muscles. Afterward, excess fat pockets and skin are eliminated, resulting in a younger, fresher appearance. The surgeon will employ skilled techniques to minimize scarring, leaving the patient with beautiful, natural-looking results. In addition, many surgeons will use breakthrough surgical techniques to minimize pain and downtime.
Am I An Ideal Candidate?
The most important quality to have in a patient desiring a full facelift is the ability to follow all pre- and post-operative instructions given by the plastic surgeons. Other important characteristics that play a role in the success of surgery may include:
- Skin elasticity
- Realistic expectations
- Loose skin on the face and neck
- Strong bone structure
- Good overall health
