How To Know If You’re An Ideal Candidate For A Facelift?
The best candidates for a face and neck lift procedure are people who have developed signs of facial aging: moderate to severe jowling with loss of jawline definition, sagging of the neck skin and muscles and loss of volume in cheeks. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and will discuss all the options open to you.
What Does A Face And Neck Lift Do?
The modern face and neck lift strive to restore a natural, refreshed look to the patient. Rather than pulling on the skin to produce results, we address the actual aging problem: stretching of the underlying facial muscles and connective tissues and undesirable skin changes which come along with that.
During the procedure, the muscles and tissues in question get tightened using special hi-tech sutures, thus, repositioning the soft tissues of the face in their natural position. The extra skin is then removed. This combination gives a patient the best possible result: a long-lasting, natural and youthful look.
How Long Does The Results Of A Facelift Last?
Results will vary depending on the patient’s age, lifestyle and skin quality and type. In general, the results of a surgical facelift can last, on average, up to ten years.
Does A Face Lift Involve Incisions?
Yes, incisions are necessary. However, incisions on the face tend to heal much better than elsewhere on the body. There are also things that can be done to improve the face and neck lift scars.
Where Are Facelift Incisions located?
The facelift incisions typically are hidden under the chin and around the ears and in the hairline.
Facelift vs. Fillers
Dermal fillers and Xeomin/Botox can greatly enhance and complement the results of a face and neck lift procedure. However, fillers and Xeomin cannot be substituted for a facelift.
When Will I See Results From A Facelift?
Some of the results will be visible immediately after the procedure. More results will become evident as the swelling subsides.
I had a tummy tuck with Dr. Shektman 5 years ago and had a face lift with him this past February. My experience both times were excellent. Dr. Shektman is a caring surgeon. He spends time with you, answers your questions, and never makes you feel like any question you have is silly. His staff is wonderful and everyone makes you feel very comfortable when you are there. – Diane Cohen
