Are you seeking permanent facial rejuvenation? Consider face lift surgery at BLUE Cosmetic Surgery in Atlanta or Huntsville.
Genetics, sun exposure or the natural passage of time can cause the skin on your face to lose tone and shape. Excess wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin can make you look older than you feel. Face lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that can turn back time and restore a more youthful expression to your face.
If you're considering face lift surgery, BLUE Cosmetic Surgery can help. Our diverse team of experts would be happy to create a customized anti-aging treatment plan to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
What is a face lift?
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that can remove or diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and sagging. Using well hidden incisions placed around the ears (see below), your cosmetic surgeon will tighten and reposition the underlying structures of your face to create a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
Face lift surgery is one of many facial rejuvenation procedures available at BLUE Cosmetic Surgery. Many of our patients elect to combine face lift surgery with eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing or fat grafting to enhance the final outcome of their procedure.
Do I need a full or a mini facelift?
Most patients benefit from a full facelift, meaning a rhytidectomy technique that corrects both sagging skin of the jowls as well as the front of the neck. Typically, a mini- face lift can only fully address the jowl area OR the neck. Thus, a mini-facelift is usually the preferred option in younger patients or patients who have previously had a face lift and require a touch-up.
What areas respond best to face lift surgery?
Face lift surgery can be used to treat:
- Jowls, folds and excess fat around the neck line
- Loose and sagging skin in the neck
Am I a candidate for face lift surgery?
Face lift surgery is designed for patients who are unhappy with significant signs of facial aging. The best candidates are healthy, possess realistic expectations and are motivated to improve their appearance through surgical intervention.
The typical face lift patient is between the ages of 40-70. However, you may elect a face lift at a younger age if you are genetically predisposed to facial aging or you have undergone significant weight loss which has resulted in excess facial skin.
What results can be expected after face lift surgery?
Most patients are capable of resuming work and other daily activities within a week of surgery. Bruising and swelling will obscure the final results of your procedure for a few weeks. Carefully following our aftercare instructions will help minimize these temporary side effects.
Following a full recovery, you can anticipate a rejuvenated facial appearance with a more well defined jaw line and a smoother tighter neck and can reasonably expect to look 5 to 10 years younger. The final results of your procedure will be more or less permanent. Life-long sun protection, excellent skin care and a healthy lifestyle will increase the probability of long-lasting results.
