Should I Get a Facelift?

Posted February 15, 2019 in Facelift

Many men and women want to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation. The facelift is designed for these patients and delivers beautiful results that will last for years. While this approach sounds ideal on paper, it may not necessarily be the right procedure for you. To achieve the best facial rejuvenation results, you must first determine which facial procedure you are a candidate for, which may or may not be a facelift. Dr. Careaga offers facelift surgery as well other facial rejuvenation treatments and is eager to match you with the procedure that will help you reach your objectives.

What Is a Facelift?

The traditional facelift technique addresses facial aging on the mid and lower regions of the face. It involves excising excess skin and repositioning lax muscles and fat through incisions made from the hairline to around the earlobe. This procedure produces attractive facial rejuvenation with results that last much longer than non-surgical treatments.

Benefits of a Facelift

  • Provides visible facial rejuvenation
  • Maintains a natural-looking appearance
  • Results are long lasting

Am I a Candidate?

Although facelift surgery targets many of the areas that are susceptible to noticeable aging, other treatments, such as eyelid surgery, may be necessary to address aging on upper regions of the face. A facelift is best for individuals with moderate-to-severe signs of facial aging. Candidates for a facelift have skin laxity on the neck and jowl region. For those with significant banding on the neck and prominent jowls, a neck lift may be recommended as well. Even though many patients desire the least-invasive option, selecting the most appropriate procedure for your needs will always come out on top.
