Recently, there was a popular story on the Internet in which a group of sisters took photographs of themselves every year for four decades. Over the decades, it was easy to see how time eventually altered the face of each sister. As the photographs of these sisters showed, the telltale signs of aging eventually become apparent for everyone. Thankfully, we have options available today that let us slow down and sometimes even reverse the signs of the aging process. The facelift has consistently proven itself as one of the most effective and long-lasting ways to take years off of your face.
When people notice these changes taking place, they often wonder what they can do to restore their youth. With so many procedures available, it can be difficult to choose just one. Many nonsurgical treatments allow people to maintain their youthful appearance longer. However, no other procedure offers the same results that come with a facelift. Because this highly personalized surgery is designed specifically to address your concerns and needs, it leads to results that other methods can’t achieve.
It is also good to consider what exactly a facelift is designed to do. First and foremost, it is designed to address sagging skin around the face. This is especially important when talking about the skin that is found around the cheeks, around the jaws or on the neck. A facelift can also be used to fix deep creases that you might find around the mouth.
Our plastic surgeon provides different types of facelifts, allowing you to personalize your procedure even more. The mini lift is designed to primarily addressing sagging skin on the cheeks. The standard facelift is more involved, typically focusing on the cheeks, the chin and the neck. Patients can also choose to get a contemporary lift, which involves repositioning the fat on the face to restore it to a more youthful appearance. If desired, Dr. Shapiro can also perform liposuction on the neck to further enhance your results. During your consultation, we can go over each method with you to help you determine which one would be right for you.
This popular procedure has greatly improved over the years. The modern facelifts provided by Dr. Shapiro are specially designed to give natural-looking results. People want to look like the best version of themselves, not like someone who has had work done. No matter which method you choose, you can expect to enjoy your results for years.
If the signs of aging are beginning to show themselves, then a facelift may be something to consider. This powerful procedure can give you satisfying results while still remaining subtle. It can restore your youthful appearance, giving you the confidence you need to continue living life to its fullest.
