Restore Youth and Facial Beauty

Posted February 10, 2017 in Plastic Surgery

The signs of aging become more evident over the years, especially on the face. Constant exposure to the sun can also make a person look years older than they actually are. As the years go by, many people think that it’s time to say goodbye to their youthful good looks and give in to spending the rest of their life with wrinkled and saggy skin.

But there’s no reason to worry. What these people need is an experienced doctor to help restore their youthful appearance and make them look better than before. An efficient surgeon can help reverse the effects of gravity and time on the skin and shave years off one’s appearance. One common procedure for this is known as the facelift.

A facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that helps address signs of aging such as sagging skin and wrinkles on the face. It’s a great procedure to help turn back the clock on your looks. It involves the removal of excess loose skin. It addresses sagging skin, deep folds, wrinkles, and lines. It works by lifting the facial tissues and tightening them, helping the patient get rid of evidence of aging and look much younger.

Why Should You Consider a Facelift?

As you grow older, the quality of your skin becomes weaker. It loses elasticity and volume, resulting in the formation of loose sagging skin, wrinkles, and jowls. Although these are a natural part of the aging process, many people find them unpleasant to look at and wish to look younger. They may feel self-conscious due to the sagging skin in their face and neck.

These signs of aging can make you look much older than your actual age, and they can sometimes negatively affect your personal relationships. A facelift is a great way to boost your self-confidence, as it helps restore youth to your appearance and improve your facial beauty.

The Facelift

A facelift is conducted to address advanced signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift will give you dramatic results, rejuvenating your looks and removing years from your appearance. After the surgery, your face and neck can have natural-looking youthful contours free from lines, wrinkles, and creases.

The technique involved in the procedure depends on several factors, such as the patient’s facial structure, skin, anatomy, and desired results. A facelift surgery will require general anesthesia in most cases. Initial incisions are made behind the patient’s hairline so that there are minimal visible post-surgical marks.

The skin is then separated from underlying connective muscle and tissues so that the surgeon can reposition the facial tissues to produce a firm foundation for the separated skin. The surgeon then removes excess skin and gently places the remaining skin on the rejuvenated tissues, giving the patient’s face a smoother, younger look.
