A refreshed, rejuvenated look without appearing’over-tightened’ or bizarre – this is the objective of the facelift. Your facial identity is maintained – you just look fresher, relaxed, fitter, and happy without appearing’operated’ on.
The mixing of an artistic strategy with solidly based surgical treatment techniques is the key. When not over-tightened, this produces a youthful appearance in a really unconscious type of way. Restoring of a sterile jawline, with no sagginess, jowls or reduced face heaviness produces a healthy, fresher appearance both from the sides and front so long as the skin does not seem’over-pulled’! Elimination of the deep grooves and lines around the mouth make 1 seem happier, fresher, and not as’mad’ or scowling, given not over-tightened or over-lifted. Combining these modifications and done well, it ought to be tough to tell that anything has been done with an overall appearance that’s just’better’.
Lesser techniques aren’t necessarily less expensive and are often quite dissatisfying, even short term. The underlying muscles are the basis and support for the appearance of suitable smoothness to the skin of the face and neck. If these muscles aren’t restored and elegant, the skin has been asked to’hold’ up everything. Leaving the muscle tightening measures out really creates an over-tightened appearance – strike one. Strike 2 – this is unsustainable – the skin will very soon redevelop all its droopiness. With the muscles correctly tightened across the sides of the face, and fat removed from under the chin with the neck muscles also tightenedthe skin may be artistically re-draped at a gentle, lifted manner. And the stage is set for long-term consequences – 10 years or longer isn’t unusual – as a result.
General anesthesia isn’t needed to get a lower face and neck lift. Utilizing specific sedation and local anesthetic methods designed especially for this surgery, most patients sleeping (as in falling asleep, not’knocked out’) throughout their facelift. No general anesthesia means it is safer overall, with a simpler, faster recovery and less potential for complications. The fiscal savings realized are also quite large – decreasing the common costs by up to 50%!
It’s much better to get a facelift completed in your late 40’s or 50’s than when you are older. This one may have surprised you! Years before, and maybe even still for those performing the conservative, over-tightened 5 hour surgery, facelifts were kind of withheld as a’last resort’ type of process. This may make sense for a lengthy, complex surgery with the necessity to hide out for a protracted, extreme 3-4 weeks of healing. However, with modern, sophisticated techniques that is a now a two hour operation using local anesthetic; it is a walk-in/walk-out process with a 1-2 week presentability recovery. Plus, shouldn’t you get to really enjoy your look for several years? Unfortunately, as we age we also often build conditions and require medications which may interfere with, or complicate surgical procedures. In general, having a lower face and neck lift is more successful and less noticeable as it’s less of a’drastic shift’. So if the signs are there, a lower face and neck lift is better done sooner, as opposed to later. That is why we call it the”Look Fabulous Today” Lift!
