Frequently Asked Questions About Facial Rejuvenation Options
If you have considered some cosmetic changes, you may have considered facial rejuvenation. Facial rejuvenation can be several procedures combined or just one procedure. If you’ve thought about these changes, you probably have questions. This guide will answer many of the questions you have about common facial rejuvenation procedures.
What Is a Facelift?
A facelift is one of the most well-known procedures, and it can provide a youthful and contoured appearance by draping the skin over the face. Doctors customize facelifts based on the needs of the patient, but you can expect to see dramatic results without making your skin appear too pulled back. The full procedure can take up to five hours.
One of the best things about a facelift is that doctors can provide you excellent results without visible scarring. Surgeons hide incisions in areas where others are not likely to see them. Plus, you can opt for a mini facelift if you aren’t sure you want the same results as a facelift. A mini facelift focuses on the lower part of the face but doesn’t help with the neck.
What Is Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction is a common procedure preferred by men and women who notice accumulating fat below the chin and jowls, creating a heavier appearance. With a small cannula, the doctor can suction out excess fat using small incisions that remain hidden. The procedure provides excellent results for many patients, especially for those who have found fat under the chin to be resistant to diet and exercise changes.
Recovery after chin liposuction is relatively short, though you may wear a chinstrap to support your skin as it shrinks down and contours over the neck.
What Is a Mini Necklift?
Many patients who come in for facial rejuvenation consider a full necklift but actually decide a mini necklift is the better option. A mini necklift is less invasive than a full necklift, and it involves changing the region under the chin and the front of the neck, ensuring your skin remains smooth and youthful. The results are more subtle, however, so this procedure is based on your needs as a patient.
Remember that if you want to improve your neckline and also up near your cheekbones, a mini facelift may be the better option. Talk to your doctors about the differences between the two procedures.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery alters the effects of aging. Your eyelids may have begun to sag over your eyes as you have grown older. The procedure may remove puffiness under the eyes and fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is not for everybody, so speak with your surgeon about any health risks associated with eyelid surgery. If eyelid surgery is right for you, you can combine it with other cosmetic surgeries for a bright, fresh look.
What Is a Browlift?
If you have noticed that your forehead is drooping or you have a lot of lines showing up there, you might consider a browlift. Browlifts give you a more natural and elevated appearance in the upper region of your face, preventing hooding over your eyes. A browlift ultimately softens your appearance and gives you a well-rested appearance.
Should You Consider Multiple Procedures at Once?
Your doctor may recommend that you undergo several procedures at once to create a balanced look for your face. You can undergo all the procedures at one time, allowing you to go under anesthesia just once and then recover just once.
