The facelift is perhaps the most well-known of all plastic surgery operations due to its multi-faceted ability to reduce some of the unattractive elements of the aging process. What isn’t as well known is the fact that you can combine the facelift surgery with several other appearance-enhancing procedures quite efficiently and easily. Below we cover some top procedures you can combine with a facelift.
Procedures You Can Combine with a Facelift
Combining several different complementary operations can lead to stunning results that have you feeling and looking great. Here is a small shortlist of some of the most popular procedures to combine with a facelift at our practice. To learn more, contact Linville Plastic Surgery and you can set up your consultation.
Eyelid surgery, also known as a Blepharoplasty, is one surgery that combines well with a facelift due to its image-enhancing focus on the areas of the face that surround the eyes.
Also, eyelid surgery can also work in order to address more serious medical issues that can arise if the skin surrounding the eyes become too loose and saggy.
If these areas droop to the point that they begin obstructing your vision, there is a possibility that your day-to-day ability to attend to certain tasks might become more difficult. Operating an automobile would be one example of this.
A brow lift is another relatively simple operation that can reinvigorate the general vitality of the upper reaches of the face, above the eyebrows. Many people will decide to combine an eyelid surgery, a brow lift, and a facelift in order to obtain an overall more youthful-looking appearance throughout their facial region.
Brow lifts can be great for eliminating some of the age lines that develop on the forehead over the span of years. Sometimes a brow lift will also involve rejuvenation elements like laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel.
Receiving some injectables is another popular pairing with a facelift. Some common substances that are utilized in plastic surgery injections include Botox and dermal fillers.
One convenient thing to remember about injectables is that they’re non-surgical and for the most part non-invasive. On top of that, they don’t contribute to any post-surgical recovery period, making them a somewhat more casual addition to the facelift process.
One thing to keep in mind about injectables is that it is generally recommended to have follow-up injections approximately 3-4 months after your initial set to maintain the results that they confer.
One of the main reasons that appearance starts to deflate in the facial area over time is partial due to the loosening of skin and its supporting tissues, paired with a reduction in facial volume due to the fat in your cheeks and the middle facial region deflating over the years.
One way to compensate for this is through Fat Grafting. This procedure can restore your facial volume by transferring fat from one area of the body to the other.
Fat is typically harvested from areas of the body that it exists in excess like the buttocks, thighs and legs, and transferred to the face, restoring youth volume in the process.
Fat grafts remain relatively new in the plastic surgery world. But they have begun to gain in popularity in some circles over synthetic injections due to the natural appearing results that they bequeath.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation exists another procedure that pairs quite well with a facelift. In this process, cutting-edge laser technology smooths wrinkles, thickens the skin, and can remove unwanted brown spots and the like from the epidermis.
You can also schedule occasional laser treatments in the ensuing months after your facelift to maintain the results that you procure from the procedure. This can help ensure that you are able to upkeep the appearance-enhancing benefits from the facelift.
A chemical peel works as another effective way to fine-tune the general appearance of the skin. Like the above-mentioned laser skin rejuvenation, a chemical peel can help you maximize your downtime and recovery period after your facelift surgery.
A medium-to-deep intensity chemical peel can address fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and the overall appearance and health of the skin. In this way it proves a very effective general rehab assistant to whatever other enhancements you might try obtaining.
