In recent years, men and women have become increasingly aware of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Not only are we living longer but we are working longer, dating later in life, and expressing the desire to make the most of our years. Regardless of the number of candles on your birthday cake, you can continue to exude the vibrancy you feel on the inside.
While you may feel like your younger self, your skin may be saying something entirely different. The first areas that seem to be affected by gravity, stress, sun, and our various life experiences are the face and neck. To rejuvenate the face, it may be necessary to tighten lose skin and smooth out lines, wrinkles, and folds; and let’s not even talk about that sagging jowl or those tired-looking eyes. Are these concerns that you note when you look in the mirror? If so, a facelift may be just what you need to regain optimal confidence.
Bringing Back your Youthful Face
Each year, statistics show an increase in the number of facial rejuvenation treatments performed. The facelift remains one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries worldwide, and for good reason. This procedure addresses every concern that we have mentioned; lifting the jaw line, forehead, brows, and cheeks with beautiful results that last for years.
What you Want to Know
- A facelift may focus on the upper part of the face only, or on the entire face.
- An upper face lift will reduce forehead wrinkles and open up the eyes by lifting the brows. This procedure may be coupled with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to remove excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids.
- A facelift may also be combined with a neck lift. Loose skin on the neck can also give away your age!
The facelift procedure is tailored to your needs and goals. It is important to understand what surgical skin lifting and tightening can do for you. Unrealistic expectations will lead to dissatisfying results. To learn more about the techniques that are used in our South Miami practice, call 305-669-0184.
