Time and the aging process can drastically change your skin’s look and texture, but you can turn back the clock with help from a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. George Pope. While there are many surgical and nonsurgical options to help you look younger, one of the most effective treatments is a facelift. Our Orlando patients find that they look younger and feel more confident after this procedure.
Over the years, time takes its toll on your facial skin. Your skin may become damaged and loose, and you may develop fine lines and wrinkles. These problems can make you look much older than you are or feel. Poor lifestyle habits such as long-term sun exposure and high amounts of stress can also contribute to your skin’s aging.
People who suffer from these aesthetic problems often seek the help of experienced plastic surgeons to undergo a facelift procedure.
What Does a Facelift Do?
A facelift is a surgical procedure designed to correct several age-related concerns in the facial region. It involves the tightening of loose, sagging skin around the cheeks and the jawline. A facelift can also correct fine lines and prominent wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and the chin.
The treatment is an excellent solution for those with loose neck skin and deep wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. A facelift is a perfect procedure to restore one’s facial contours and youthful skin that tends to degrade with the aging process.
The procedure involves an incision in the hairline that can extend behind your ears. Through this incision, Dr. Pope works to removed excess fat and loose skin. Once the necessary corrections are made, the remaining skin is tightened and closed with incisions to form the new facial contours.
Dr. Pope pays careful attention to your unique features and works to deliver excellent results that you can feel proud to show off. If you desire further corrections in the neck area, he can also combine the procedure with a neck lift for even greater improvements.
Your final results can be seen after you have healed completely. You can expect a recovery time of 1 to 2 weeks. In that time, you should take a break from work and any other stressful activities that can affect your recovery.
There are several types of facelifts, and you can learn more about them in this blog post.
A facelift procedure typically results in a much smoother and sculpted facial aesthetic. You can expect a significant reduction in wrinkles and loose skin, as we discussed in this earlier blog post. Overall, you’ll appear much more youthful and vibrant.
As long as you take good care of yourself and your skin after the procedure, you can expect your results to last for a long time to come.
Maintaining Your Facelift Results
Avoiding excessive sun exposure, following a healthy diet, and using the right skin products are some good measures that you can take to prolong the results of your facelift surgery.
Using nonsurgical dermal fillers is another effective way to prolong your youthful appearance. Nonsurgical injections such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® help maintain your results much longer than by using conventional methods alone.
