Facelift surgery has come a long way, and the techniques used today are much more advanced than methods of the past. I use many of these techniques in my own practice so that I can create natural-looking results for my facelift patients from Naples, Ft. Myers, and throughout southwest Florida.
Understanding Facelift Techniques
Incisions can be camouflaged in the hairline for nearly imperceptible scars. And the underlying muscles and fat can be adjusted for long-lasting results. Facial fat can be removed with liposuction or relocated with a fat graft in order to sculpt youthful facial contours and create a more natural appearance. Additionally, with BOTOX® and dermal fillers, a facelift can be enhanced long after the surgery for ongoing benefits. You can learn more about how I help patients look like younger versions of themselves with facelift surgery in this related blog post.
Who can benefit from a facelift?
Contrary to popular belief, there is no particular age group that benefits most from facelift surgery. Whether an individual is a good candidate depends on many factors, which are often unrelated to age. They include:
- Skin quality
- Physical and mental health
- Presence of loose, sagging skin
- Excess fat in the neck, cheek, and jowls
Usually, the individuals who benefit most from facelift surgery have good skin elasticity and are in prime physical health. They also understand the benefits and risks of surgery and have realistic expectations about the results. Loose skin around the jawline and fat deposits in the neck area can also be corrected with facelift surgery. Patients whose concerns are related to the eyes or forehead may be better suited for an eyelid lift or a brow lift.
