22 Aug The Ultimate Approach to a Facelift
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, can work wonders—especially for the middle and lower face. At John Park MD Plastic Surgery, every single procedure is customized to achieve the patient’s unique goals. A facelift is one of the most powerful surgeries because it can restructure the face and neck while simultaneously getting rid of excess skin. A facelift can make you look years younger, restoring a youthful, healthy, happy appearance.
While our faces say a lot about us, our facial and neck skin is also constantly exposed to the elements including damaging UV rays. That’s why these areas age faster than the rest of us, resulting in jowls, eye bags, marionette lines near the mouth, and crow’s feet. A gorgeous facelift can offer dramatic results but still looks natural. That’s why incisions are carefully hidden by the ears and in natural crevices. Beneath the surface, facial tissue is tightened, allowing for the skin to be re-contoured into a taut yet organic-looking aesthetic. This means minimal scars and a result that doesn’t look pulled or manipulated.
The most common compliments to a traditional facelift
One of the most common complements to a traditional facelift is a midface or cheek lift. This procedure helps to restore volume in an area that often becomes hollow with age. We tend to gain fat in some areas and lose it in others as we age, and the cheeks are one area where the right amount of fullness lends to a youthful appearance. A flattened out midface area can make us look older than we are, gaunt, and more tired.
Restoring volume can be achieved with a fat transfer or injectable fillers. While the cheek area is one of the most common places to bring back volume in conjunction with a facelift, restoration using volume boosters can be achieved in many areas. Some clients opt for fuller lips during a facelift, or a filler beneath the eyes to help with a hollowness in this area. You might also be interested in a chemical peel, micro-dermabrasion, or other non-invasive procedures in conjunction with your facelift to achieve optimal results.
