Scottsdale Facelift Guide

When there’s something you don’t like about the way you look, you may try to conceal the issue. For example, some choose clothing which makes them feel less self-conscious, or they avoid showing that part of their body in public.

However, this is a little more difficult when it comes to facial conditions caused by aging, which is why more people than ever are considering facelift services. In fact, according to a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, facelifts were the fifth most common cosmetic procedure in the US last year, with 131,106 carried out in total – a 4% increase from the previous year.

Otherwise known as a Rhytidectomy, a facelift can target specific facial issues, including smoothing loose skin on the neck and face, removing excess facial fat, and tightening underlying tissues. The impressive result is a fresher, firmer appearance.

What Does Facelift Surgery Involve?

As you age, youthful contours in the face start to change for a variety of reasons. This includes stress, heredity reasons, gravity, lifestyle (e.g., smoking), and environmental conditions such as sun damage. Whatever the reason for your facial changes, it can leave you feeling low in self-confidence.


Benefits of a Facelift

Facelifts can’t stop the aging process, but they do have a variety of benefits.

  • Look rejuvenated and fresh-faced
  • Improves visible signs of aging
  • Smooth sagging skin on both the face and neck
  • Can be undergone alongside other facial rejuvenation procedures


Rejuvenation Procedures

If undergoing a facelift, you may also wish to consider other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).

  • A brow lift serves to correct a deeply furrowed or sagging brow and improve wrinkles in the forehead area. The procedure places eyebrows in a better position for a youthful, alert appearance.
  • Eyelid surgery will rejuvenate aging eyes by removing excess fat and skin from around them to achieve a more rested, youthful appearance. You may choose to have this if you have fine wrinkles under the lower eyelid, sagging skin above the upper eyelid, or bags under the eyes.

Having several procedures together will help create your desired look in full. Once you’ve decided on the best course of corrective action, your surgeon will be able to provide you with an accurate quotation for the surgery.


The Right Candidate

These are some of the characteristics which may cause you to consider a facelift and benefit from the surgery.

  • You’re bothered by your facial appearance
  • Loose skin on your face and neck, creating jowls
  • Sagging in the center of your face
  • Deep creases below your eyelids or along the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Excess fatty deposits under your chin or jaw
  • You’re a normal weight, but have a double chin
  • Loss of facial fat which has dropped or disappeared

You should also be well enough to undergo surgery under anesthetic and not suffer from any condition which may impair healing. Your surgeon will take a detailed medical history to ensure you’re healthy enough for the facelift.
