Have you ever considered a Facelift and whether or not it was right for you? The reality is that your skin is not going to stay smooth, wrinkle-free, or firm-looking forever. Unfortunately, over time, you lose your fresh and youthful appearance, and a combination of factors such as the natural aging process and daily stress may lead you to experience fine lines, deep folds, or skin sagginess. The good news is that there is a remedy for these facial issues through a surgical procedure known as rhytidectomy or face lift.
As you age, your facial skin and neck area gradually lose their elasticity and the underlying muscle loses tone as well. These changes are aggravated by other factors such as stress, weight gain or loss, gravity, and sun exposure. As a result, your facial skin may become saggy and you may notice jowls and excess skin and fat. You are likely to look tired and even older than your actual age. A facelift involves the removal of sagging skin and excess fatty deposits by redistributing the deposits and tightening underlying facial muscles. The surgery will remove visible aging sign on the lower 1/3 of your face and the upper neck.
If done properly, a face lift surgery can bring about significant enhancements in your facial and neck skin areas – making you look rejuvenated and younger in the process. Variants of this surgery such as the mini and extended facelift-necklift procedures may also be recommended. In some cases, Dr. Ali Tehrani, a cosmetic plastic surgeon in the Inland Empire, may also suggest combining your facelift with an eyelid lift, rhinoplasty, forehead lift, or eyelid lift. The main purpose of surgical combinations is to achieve optimal cosmetic improvements with a lesser recovery period.
At his Apple Valley Clinic, Dr. Tehrani can help you with any of your concerns regarding your face and neck and help answer your question of whether or not a facelift is right for you.
