Look Great This Year with a Face Lift
- Posted on: Jan 8 2012
There is no better time than the present to take years off your appearance. The best way to change your looks, and your life, is by getting a facelift. A long time staple of the plastic surgery community, face lift surgeries have come a long way in maximizing results. Basically, a facelift is a surgical procedure designed to repair sagging and wrinkled skin of the face and sometimes on the neck. It and can be performed as a singular procedure or in concert with other facial rejuvenation surgeries such as a forehead lift or eyelid surgery.
The anesthesiologist will administer a general anesthetic and you will enjoy a peaceful rest while the plastic surgeon makes surgical incisions above the hairline, behind the earlobe, and the lower scalp. Generally, this introductory incision results in a continuous cut. While a variety of techniques are employed the outcomes will be the same: to make you look younger and fresher than ever.
The procedure itself may include the following:
- Removal and elevation of the fat tissue underneath the skin
- Excise (cut away) loose skin and tighten up the muscles to improve facial contour
- Fat removal procedure such as laser liposuction to problem areas including the neck and jowls
Sagging or wrinkled skin is a natural phenomenon of the aging process. Fat deposits can slowly appear around the neck areas, creases can ultimately form between the nose and the mouth and the jaw line can become slack. Many factors can also contribute to early aging or skin problems. Heredity, poor diet, smoking, and obesity can contribute to skin problems severe enough to require surgery. A facelift can go a long to repair some the signs of aging and skin damage. The entire point of a face lift procedure is to undo damage to the skin and underlying musculature in order to restore a more youthful look to your face.
A facelift is consistently one of the most popular plastic surgery options available and has helped millions of people over the years to look great and enhance their self esteem. Perhaps now is the time to make a change in your life?
