Total facial rejuvenation - a do or a don't?

Facelift

So what exactly is facial rejuvenation? Well, in a nutshell, it is a cosmetic procedure that uses a combination of different surgical and non-surgical techniques to help restore the youthful appearance of the face. The goal is to improve sagging skin and facial wrinkles, while also lifting droopy skin and restoring volume in areas of the neck. The main goal is to improve the appearance of your face. Facial rejuvenation can be done by a plastic surgeon, or it may consist of several procedures performed by different healthcare providers.

Is facial rejuvenation is the same as facelift surgery? Facelift surgery is actually one of the facial rejuvenation procedures. Facial rejuvenation itself  includes many different kinds of cosmetic surgeries that improve both skin and muscle tone in your face:

  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess fat from around your eyelids to make them look smoother and more youthful; this also makes them easier to open when you’re awake or asleep.
  • Neck lift tightens loose skin on neck area.
  • Cheek augmentation adds volume under cheekbones.
  • Lip enhancement adds fullness to lips.
  • Chin augmentation installs an implant beneath chin bone to give it more definition.
  • Jawline contouring reshapes jawline for better proportionate balance between upper face & lower face

Benefits of Facelift and Neck Lift
A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts sagging skin on the face, jawline and neck by removing excess fat deposits while tightening muscles in these areas. A neck lift is similar to a facelift but focuses on correcting loose neck skin and underlying tissue around the chin area.

A neck lift can help improve the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated look. This procedure can boost self-confidence and enhance one’s overall appearance by creating a smoother, more defined neckline and jawline.

A neck lift can be amazing for your self-confidence because it makes you feel more attractive when looking in the mirror or having photos taken of yourself by others. It also improves how others perceive you by making them think that you are younger than what they actually see when looking at your face without makeup or other cosmetic enhancements applied beforehand!

Recovery Time for the Face and Neck
The recovery time for a facelift is approximately one week. The neck may take longer to heal, but this depends on the patient’s health and age. For most people, their face looks normal within two weeks of surgery but will continue to improve over the next six months as swelling goes down and new collagen fibres mature. The final result will not be seen until at least six months after surgery because it takes this long for new collagen fibres to grow into their original positions in your skin (this process is called “lengthening”).

After your surgery, you are not advised to drive. The doctor would suggest for you to arrange for someone else to drive you home from the hospital if they aren’t already doing so. It is also not advisable for you to make any other plans until at least 24 hours after your procedure has been completed!

Who Needs Facelift?
If there is loose skin and sagging around your jawline, neck and cheeks, then a facelift can help to tighten these areas. If you have sagging skin all over the face and neck, then an operation called a neck lift (or “platysmaplasty”) may be more appropriate than a face-only procedure like a facelift.

A facelift can make you look younger and healthier, but only if you are in good shape otherwise. A weak immune system or other medical issues that need attention may result in you having to reschedule the surgery at a later date.

You should also be a good candidate for surgery: The doctor will help determine this by examining your skin and checking out things like blood pressure and cholesterol levels before recommending any procedures (if at all).

Probably the most significant benefit of a facial rejuvenation is that it enable you to improve your appearance without making any major changes to your lifestyle. You don’t need to go on diets or quit smoking; all you need is regular exercise and good nutrition. And get plenty of rest to recover!
