If you’re looking for information about facelift procedures, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at some common questions people ask about this common procedure.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of certain areas of the face. It can aid in creating a smoother, more youthful appearance–particularly around the neck area, producing definition around the jowls and providing a more youthful appearance throughout the midface and cheek area.
A facelift does not correct the upper third portion of the face. For this area, a brow lift may be most beneficial. Additionally, though, the procedure can correct sagging skin due to the natural aging process; it cannot change the texture of the skin itself. For this issue, other procedures may be more appropriate treatments.
Who Benefits from a Facelift?
Anyone who has concerns with their changing facial silhouette due to the natural aging process can benefit. Though the procedures are typically sought out by clients ranging from their 40s to their 60s, facelifts can be successfully performed for clients well into their older years. This is under the assumption that clients are in optimal health. If you have any specific underlying health concerns, you may inquire about them with our team.
How Long Does It Take to Perform the Procedure?
It all depends on the unique case. If you are considering having other procedures done in addition to your facelift, you could add more hours to your treatment time. Every individual is different.
Are There Any Visible Scars?
As with any surgical procedure, one would expect to scar. That being said, facelift scars are strategically placed and remain for the most part hidden.
How Long is the Recovery Process?
It is generally recommended that you have plenty of rest for the first week or so after your treatment. Afterward, it is recommended that you restrict yourself to non-strenuous activities. After this period, clients return to their normal work activities. It is also strongly suggested that clients avoid excessive sun exposure until the procedure is completely healed.
