Ageing, gravity, sun exposure, inherited skin type and current stress in daily life all end up reflected on a person’s face. Lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, nose and mouth start to appear; cheeks, jowls and neck begin to sag, all demanding a solution.
Surgical treatment of the skin and muscles of the face can temporarily correct and delay an aged appearance. At the same time, after snipping, redistributing facial fat and tissue and removing any surplus skin, it is possible to reposition the skin in its original place. A rhytidectomy (facelift) can be full or partial and can be combined with other procedures such as: eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), eyebrow lift, implants or fillers for cheeks or the chin, nose reshaping, etc.; plus, face peeling techniques.
This information could prove to be very interesting, however, each patient is different and therefore any desired combination of procedures should be carefully discussed with your surgeon.
Men and women whose face shows signs of ageing but whose skin still retains adequate elasticity, they should enjoy both good physical and mental health and want to reverse ageing and restore a more youthful appearance.
The majority of the patients tend to be between 40 and 60 years old, however, a procedure of this kind can be carried out on younger or older patients. The younger a person is, the better the results will be, and they will also last longer. Facial rejuvenation not only makes you look refreshed and younger, it also increases your self-esteem and confidence.
Each surgeon has their preferred techniques, depending on the best option for each individual patient. Generally, the incisions are made just in front of and just behind the ears, so that the scars are as invisible as possible and well hidden in the natural crease of the ear. When the neck is also involved in the procedure, there could be a small scar under the chin.
Your new look
The objective of this type of procedure is to look younger and, along with this outcome, you will undoubtedly look more attractive.
You will enjoy your new youthful appearance, although you must remember that the results will not be immediate. Do bear in mind that surgery cannot actually turn back the clock, your skin will continue to lose elasticity, however, you will look at least 5-10 years younger. Plus, it is possible to repeat the procedure after a period of 5-10 years, depending on the patient.
