The Many Options for Facial Rejuvenation

Posted September 05, 2013 in Facial Cosmetic Surgery

A face lift is often touted as an excellent option for facial rejuvenation as there are many alternatives to the surgical procedures as well as non-surgical alternatives too. If you want to look younger, this is an appealing proposition. Ready to learn more?

Face lifts can treat sagging skin and jowls, which is a common concern as we all age. For older patients who can benefit from tightening of the jawline and neck area, the doctor needs to augment, tighten and restructure the deep tissues to achieve satisfying results. These techniques come in a variety of solutions. Here are the top 3 solutions that most plastic surgeons offer for facial rejuvenation:

#1 Face Lift: the traditional face lift works at the SMAS layer of the tissue, which allows the surgeon to elevate the jowls at a deeper level and provide a lasting and satisfying result. View the various procedures and techniques used for a face lift.

#2 Liquid Face Lifts: As you age, volume loss in the soft tissues becomes a real problem. The cheeks and lower face will often benefit from soft tissue augmentation, which involves treatments such as dermal filler injection.

#3 Laser Treatment: Lasers can tighten the skin and remove surface irregularities that have accumulated over the years. While it cannot provide the same results as a face lift, a laser treatment can rejuvenate the skin, and today’s laser treatments require minimal downtime.

Face lifts have changed from a standard technique to a custom-tailored approach that incorporates several of the latest techniques in facial rejuvenation.

Setting aside specific treatments, you should always work with a plastic surgeon who is familiar with all techniques and the range of conditions that different patients present.
