If you’re ready to tackle signs of facial aging, there are now less invasive options you can choose from, in addition to the traditional facelift. But how do you know which type of facelift is right for you.
The traditional full facelift removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and reduces the appearance ofdeep wrinkles. It focuses on correcting aging in the lower face and neck. However, there are now less invasive procedures that use laser energy and ultrasound to perform ‘lunchtime facelifts.’
Which type of facelift is right for you
The facelift that’s right for you will depend on the specific concerns you need corrected, and the results you want to achieve.
If you need to address significant aging on the face and neck, the traditional facelift, may be the best option for you. It is a comprehensive procedure that will improve the appearance of your sagging cheeks and jowls, deep folds and wrinkles, slack neck muscles, and loose neck skin.
On the other hand, if you are just beginning to develop wrinkles on your face and neck, and don’t have a lot of loose skin, a less invasive ‘lunchtime facelift’ may be the right procedure for you. Facial rejuvenation procedures that use laser and ultrasound are geared towards individuals with less dramatic signs of aging (click here to learn more).
If you’re considering a facelift, you should consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the different options available. The surgeon will help you decide which procedure will meet your aesthetic goals, and give you a youthful, natural-looking result.
