Loose and sagging skin are a normal part of the aging process, which means eventually, you will have to deal with it like everyone else. Luckily, there are cosmetic procedures developed and designed specifically to correct loose or sagging skin, and one of these is facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy. Understandably, you may find it difficult to choose the right one for you given that there are now so many options readily accessible to everyone. But if you want dramatic, noticeable, and long-lasting results, your best option is a facelift treatment.
There are various types of facelift surgery techniques, each of which addresses specific areas and skin laxity severity or condition. For instance, a midface facelift is ideal for patients who wish to lift the skin just below their cheeks. A lower facelift targets the skin on the jawline and neck, and a mini facelift is designed for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity.
A full or traditional facelift is ideal if you have advanced skin laxity. This technique targets the mid and lower parts of the face as well as the neck.
Results from your surgery won’t be noticeable until about two to three months post-treatment. More dramatic results will be achieved by the sixth month following your surgery. Make sure to follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding post-treatment care to ensure you will heal properly and no complications will arise.
Patients looking for a quick fix might not be the ideal candidate for rhytidectomy. Feel free to call Capital Facial Plastic Surgery to consult Dr. Adam E. Singleton, MD, a double board certified, fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon who performs all facial plastic procedures at Capital Facial Plastic Surgery.
As for how long results last, these are by far the longest-lasting facial cosmetic treatment results as patients typically enjoy results up to ten years, sometimes longer depending on the person’s aging process, lifestyle, and skin care routine, among others. So, if you genuinely want to turn back time and rediscover your youthful look, this cosmetic treatment is for you.
