As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jaw line grows sagging and jowly. Moreover, folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. Facelift cosmetic surgery for our Orlando, FL, patients can stop this aging process for the time being. It can set back the clock by improving the most visible signs of aging—removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redrawing the skin of your face and neck.
Can plastic surgery make you look 10 years younger?
Yes, studies show that people usually feel they look between 8 to 12 years younger after a facelift, according to studies published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery and by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Studies have also shown that facelift surgery improves perceived attractiveness and self-esteem.
Many people consider their face their most important physical asset. When you are unhappy with any aspect of your appearance, it can negatively affect your self-esteem and confidence. Facial surgery procedures can help adjust or enhance any part of your face. From your forehead to your chin, you can find an operation that can work for you. A facelift can be done alone, or in juxtaposition with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
What do they do during a facelift?
This is a question we hear frequently at our practice. Basically, the aim of a facelift is to smooth out skin and give the face a more refreshed, youthful appearance. Proficient plastic surgeons can make it happen within just a small time span.
Dr. Pope usually performs facelift surgery as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. During the surgery, he makes incision in the hairline near the temples, in the creases in front of the ears, and around the earlobes. The skin is separated from the underlying facial tissue, and muscle and fatty tissue are carefully repositioned to a tauter, more youthful position. He also usually performs a neck lift at the same time, removing excess fat on the neck that are a tell-tale sign of aging.
Full Facial Rejuvenation
When you combine a facelift with a brow lift and eyelid surgery, the horizontal lines formed on the forehead and the puffy bags formed under the eyes become extinct. There are no more wrinkles around the mouth and nose.
