Reverse Signs Of Aging With A Facelift

facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a rather simple procedure designed to improve the overall appearance of the facial skin. Age-related factors such as an accumulation of fat beneath the skin, loss of moisture in the skin, and a decrease in collagen production can result in baggy, wrinkled, and brittle skin that makes an individual look older than what is stated on the birth certificate. No one wants to look old and tired, and a facelift can truly reverse these visual signs of aging.

Facelift procedures have evolved over the past two decades. Some individuals will be told by the dermatologist or skin surgeon that a mini lift, or limited incision lift, will be sufficient to correct the visual condition of the skin. We recommend a specific procedure only after consulting with the client and outlining the treatment in detail. We want to make sure the client understands the likely outcome prior to making a decision.

What A Facelift Will Correct

Most of the problems we hear from our clients who come to us with questions about a facelift center around the appearance of the skin and the wrinkling that is occurring near the mouth, near the eyes, and on the forehead. Some of our clients are especially concerned about nasolabial folds and sagging along the jawline. They have heard that dermal fillers can help a bit, but they are interested in a more permanent solution.

Consultation And Treatment

During the consultation, we will actually take facial dimension measurements and also make note of the thickness of the skin and how severe the wrinkles are. Folds and creases can be improved with a facelift procedure, but they may not disappear entirely after the skin is repositioned. This is why a consultation is important because the client will come away with realistic outcome expectations.

If we and the client agree upon a specific lift procedure, we will give information on how to prepare. This means some at-home preparatory cleaning and skin health maintenance.
