What do you see when you look in the mirror? If youthful radiance has been replaced by wrinkles and sagging, it may be time to consider a facelift. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is one of the best ways to combat facial aging.
How can a facelift benefit you? Our patients enjoy these five benefits of facelift surgery and more.
A Facelift Targets Aging at the Source
During a facelift, the skin and underlying tissues are restored to a more youthful appearance. A facelift targets the changes that naturally occur during the aging process, including:
Skin Loosening – As the skin ages, it becomes less elastic. This loosening leads to sagging and wrinkles. A facelift tightens and removes excess skin, combating skin loosening and restoring a tighter, smoother skin appearance.
Sagging Facial Tissues – Facial tissues change as you age; fat beneath the skin begins to shift downward, and jowls may develop along the jawline. A facelift doesn’t just tighten skin. It lifts and repositions the supportive tissues underneath the skin to restore a more youthful appearance.
Wrinkling – Tightening and removing excess skin helps to alleviate and smooth wrinkles.
A facelift isn’t a quick fix; it permanently addresses age-related facial changes to provide long-lasting reversal of facial wrinkling and sagging.
Facelifts Pair Beautifully with Other Cosmetic Procedures
Some things are better together. Just like jelly complements peanut butter, a facelift can be enhanced by adding in other cosmetic treatments. Fat transfer helps to restore lost facial volume and can fill in hollows under the eyes. Eyelid surgery can refresh the delicate skin around the eyes. These additional procedures allow us to customize your facelift and precisely target your trouble spots.
A Facelift Offers Long-Lasting Results
Many of our patients ask, “How long will my facelift results last?” While results vary, many facelift patients report that they look 8-10 years younger after their surgery. The aging process continues, but we like to think of a facelift as a reset for your facial appearance. You’ll continue to age, but you’ll age from a new starting point, always looking younger than you would have without facelift surgery.
No one needs to know you’ve had a facelift. Fortunately, Dr. George Landis is known for his natural-looking results. We use advanced techniques to ensure that you look beautifully refreshed, not fake or overdone.
Some patients worry about visible scarring, but Dr. Landis’s specialized techniques and careful incision placement help minimize scarring after surgery.
Rediscover Youthful Confidence
When you look in the mirror and love what you see, it is easy to feel unstoppable. Our patients love feeling more youthful and confident in their appearance after facelift surgery.
