What are the Benefits of a Facelift?

Are you considering facial rejuvenation surgery?  Chances are you’d like to know how a facelift can benefit you before making a decision.  Facelift surgery is a popular anti-aging treatment, especially among the over 55 age group.  But what are the benefits of a facelift?

What’s Involved In A Facelift?

A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that reduces signs of aging on the face and neck.   During the operation, the surgeon will make incisions around the hairline to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying muscles, before re-draping the remaining skin.  A facelift gives the face and neck a smoother, tighter look.

What Are The Benefits Of A Facelift?

Some people considering a facelift are often not sure if they’re quite ready for the procedure.  However, reviewing the benefits with a plastic surgeon can help them make the right decision.

Here are a few of the benefits of a facelift:

  • Tightens sagging skin around the mid-face
  • Reduces creases and folds around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines)
  • Improves moderate sagging in the neck
  • Removes jowls and recontours the jawline and neck

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates for a facelift are people that would like to correct signs of aging in the mid to lower face.  Candidates should also be in relatively good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure.

Combining A Facelift With Other Procedures

A facelift is often combined with complementary facial procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), for optimal facial rejuvenation.  A brow lift tightens sagging skin on the forehead and restores the brows to a more youthful position.  An eyelid lift rejuvenates the upper and/or lower eyelids.

Are you ready to refine and rejuvenate your face with a facelift?  A well-done facelift can provide lasting, beautiful facial rejuvenation results.
