IN FOCUS: FACELIFTS
Aging is an inevitable part of life and in this process, our facial and neck region undergoes some predictable changes. The most prominent of which are sagging of the skin around the eyes, neck and such and the development of those pesky wrinkles. This may cause self esteem to lower and facelifts – a successful cosmetic surgery procedure that essentially removes excess facial skin by tightening the underlying tissues and redrapes the skin on the problem areas. It addresses the changes by consistently improving and tightening the sagging neckline and jawline to achieve a more youthful appearance and lead you to look more energized, fresh and young.
Its important to be fully open about your expectations with your surgeon. Communication is vital – talk about the possible side effects, what you realistically hope to achieve after the procedure, etc. As for the age when this sort of procedure is appropriate – it varies depending on a variety of factors, ranging from personal preference and esteem to even race. For example, caucasians typically tend to age faster because their skin is thinner.
Make sure your expectations are realistic. Its important to use the procedure to achieve subtle and tasteful changes for a more elegant and graceful appearance. It maintains an air of naturalness and effortlessness.
You can undergo the procedure while having other facial rejuvenation procedures done. One of the major considerations are the mark it leaves behind your hairline where the incision is made.
