Most people have heard of the facelift, but not everyone considers undergoing one. That’s because there can be many misconceptions about the facelift, what it can do, and how you can benefit. If you’re curious about the facelift, it’s always best to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Mark Prysi to learn more and determine if it’s best for your goals. Here are some of the top benefits of the facelift and why Dr. Prysi recommends it as the best way to rejuvenate the face.
1. The Facelift is an All-in-One Solution
There are many ways that aging impacts the face, including signs like deep creases around the nose and mouth, jowls, a double chin, marionette lines, and more. Although you may be able to target these concerns with non-surgical treatments, the facelift can address and reverse them all at once. In fact, by undergoing a facelift, you can lose as many as 10 years from your appearance.
2. The Facelift Is the Best Solution for Sagging Skin
Sagging skin occurs as the body ages because collagen, the protein that normally supports the skin and gives it thickness and elasticity, begins to break down. Although there are non-surgical ways to boost collagen production and reverse the effects, the facelift still remains the best way to tighten the skin and restore it to the position it was in when you were younger.
3. Facelifts Are For Men, Too
It may not occur to many men that a facelift could help them look younger and more refreshed because traditionally, the facelift has been more popular with women. However, over the past few years, the number of men undergoing the facelift has been increasing. With the right men’s facelift plastic surgeon, men can enjoy natural, subtle results as well.
4. The Facelift Can Be More Than Just the Facelift
The modern facelift is much different from what most people picture from decades ago. There are actually a few different types of facelifts, including the endoscopic facelift and the mid-facelift. Additionally, the facelift can easily be combined with options like the neck lift or brow lift for more complete facial rejuvenation.
5. Facelifts Come With Virtually Invisible Incisions
Because the face is the most visible part of the body on a day-to-day basis, incisions are extremely important. A facelift expert like Dr. Prysi takes great care in concealing incisions (which are minimal thanks to the use of an endoscope) so virtually no signs of your procedure are present.
6. The Modern Facelift Produces Natural Results
There are many notorious examples of facelifts from past decades gone wrong, and it’s normal for this to deter people from getting a facelift. However, facelift techniques have come a long way. With more emphasis on restoring and tightening the deeper tissues of the face and the vertical lifting approach, facelift results are more natural than ever.
