Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about Facelifts
What are the different types of facelifts?
There are several types of facelifts, including the traditional facelift, the mini facelift, and the non-surgical.
- A traditional facelift is the most comprehensive and involves incisions around the ear and hairline to lift and tighten the skin, muscles, and underlying tissue.
- A mini facelift is a less invasive procedure that uses smaller incisions and also has a quicker recovery time.
- A non-surgical facelift utilizes non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques like derma filler and botox to make the face appear younger.
What is the best age to get a facelift?
There is no specific age for getting a facelift but being proactive about aging is your best chance for maximum results. Most patients are between the ages of 40 and 60 years old. At this age, the skin still has enough elasticity to adjust to the definition that is being created by the procedure. Patients over 70 can also be good candidates for a facelift depending on their health and skin elasticity. The results of a facelift can last for several years, but they are not permanent. The aging process will continue, and the face will continue to change over time.
What happens during the facelift procedure?
During the facelift procedure, incisions are made around the ear and hairline. The surgeon will then lift and tighten the muscles and tissue to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Excess skin and fat are also removed during the procedure, and the remaining skin is re-draped over the new contour. The incisions are then closed with sutures or staples that will leave a flawless appearance.
