Facelift surgery is one of the best ways to achieve profound facial rejuvenation that lasts. This is exactly why the procedure has been one of the most popular year after year. Through years of practice, one thing that plastic surgeons have learned is that facelift surgery is not reserved only for older adults who have significant concerns about changes in facial shape. Today, adults in their forties and fifties are seeing dramatic improvement using conservative surgical techniques. A benefit that comes from having a facelift earlier is that the results seem to last longer.
Of course, good skin and sun care are critical to a lasting outcome. Additionally, patients are discovering that they can enhance their facelift with other minimally-invasive procedures. We’ll discuss a few here.
Enhance Your Facelift With The Following
People often turn to dermal fillers as an alternative to a facelift, not a compliment. However, a few injections of dermal fillers can expand on the rejuvenation achieved with surgery. Remember, the goal of a facelift is to reposition deep layers of tissue to lift heaviness from the lower face and jawline. Surgery can smooth the creases around the nose and mouth and reduce or eliminate jowls, but it does not restore volume. Dermal fillers are often used to disguise lower eyelid puffiness and to add more contour to the cheek area. What’s best about dermal fillers as a complementary treatment to a facelift is that they do not require additional downtime, nor do you have to wait to see the results of this office procedure.
A facelift rejuvenates the jawline and lower face. While this is a lot to be happy about, there may be a little more that you’d like to achieve. Perhaps you have a mild to moderate double chin that you would like to eliminate. You need not add liposuction to your facelift if you prefer a non-surgical approach. CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular noninvasive treatments for double-chin fat. A few sessions may be needed but each is comfortable and needs no downtime. Reducing submental fullness can further slim the frame of the face to make the results of your facelift more visible.
