Are You Considering Cosmetic Facelift Surgery?
Cosmetic facelift surgery may be the only option for some people. Anti-wrinkle creams and non-invasive face lift procedures -- like thermage facelift and contour thread lift – may not be enough to reduce the signs of facial aging or give some people the dramatic results they desire.
Often times cosmetic surgery facelifts are combined with other rejuvenating procedures like a brow lift or an eye lift to reduce puffiness and deep bags under the eyes.
Fortunately, for those seeking cosmetic facelift surgery -- today we have more choices than ever.
There are many ways to lift, tighten, and reposition the skin and soft tissues of the face.
Depending on the individual and their goals, a doctor can help select the best procedure to meet those needs.
For older patients or those with excess sagging and loose skin around the chin and neck area, most doctors would suggest a full facelift.
However, for baby boomers around 60 years of age or younger, a mini facelift or mid facelift is usually recommended.
This procedure only rejuvenates the middle part of the face, such as lower eyes, cheeks, nasolabial fold and jowls.....and does not affect the lower part of the face like neck wrinkles.
There is a new development with cosmetic surgery facelifts that's even better than a mini facelift surgery. This procedure is called the Short Scar Facelift.
This procedure takes much less time to perform and reduces scaring and recovery time.
