If your goal is to look younger, plastic surgery offers plenty of options. One way to look younger is with facelifts. Facelifts are a common procedure in the plastic surgery field. Here at Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, Dr. Martin has his own, exclusive face lift. Which facelift and which techniques used during your surgery depends and varies from person to person. That’s why it’s important to have a surgical consult to go over everything before the surgery.
What is a Facelift?
As you age, your body naturally changes. A facelift is a common plastic surgery procedure that combats the appearance of aging, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. The procedure improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck areas.
During a facelift procedure, you may elect to have different procedures performed at the same time as your facelift. Many people choose this, especially if it relates to their facelift procedure. This includes fat transfers, brow lifts, or chemical peels and lasers.
However, it’s important to note that a facelift does not stop you from aging. Facelifts also do not change your fundamental appearance. You’ll still look like yourself, just a younger version of yourself.
What Age is Appropriate for a Facelift?
Some candidates are too young for a facelift. However, no one is too old for a facelift as long as they’re in good health. Good health is incredibly important when it comes to a plastic surgery procedure. If a patient is in failing health, they’re likely not a good candidate for plastic surgery.
How Long Does It Last?
All people are different, and so are the results of a facelift. For some people, a facelift lasts forever. For others, they may need another in six to 12 months. It’s hard to predict what your body will do. However, if you do require a secondary facelift, your skin is generally tightened and minimal alteration is done from the first facelift.
What Wrinkles are Eliminated?
Facelifts don’t automatically eliminate wrinkles. Your wrinkles will look less prominent, but they’ll still exist. If you’re looking for wrinkle elimination, you’ll want to turn to turn to dermal fillers and injections or chemical peels. We offer both injectables and chemical peels in our office.
