Fillers. Botox. Lasers. The three of these aesthetic procedures share a category of non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. Whether you’re trying to eliminate wrinkles or tighten skin, the are all very effective for subtle enhancements and improvements of the facial aging. However, there may come a time when you need a more effective “pick-me-up” to restore a youthful appearance. A Facelift is a great option to help turn back time, but you should first know if you’re ready and which facelift option is best for you.
When to Consider Facelift
Facelift is a procedure normally performed on patients between the ages of 40 and 60 to correct the sagging skin of the neck and lower face. Additionally, it improves the appearance of lower face wrinkles, jowls, and it restores jaw definition. Whether or not you are ready for a facelift is also determined by your sentiments about the appearance of your face and neck. If by pulling slightly back on the sides of the jaw and up toward your ears results in a more desirable appearance, you may be a good candidate for one of three kinds of facelift procedures:
The Mini Lift
The Mini Facelift is ideal for younger candidates in their 40’s who would like subtle improvements to reverse signs of aging. This procedure corrects mild skin laxity and jowling and is known to be a safe procedure that can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The Mini Facelift is an outpatient surgery and requires the least amount of recovery time.
The Deep Plane Facelift
The Deep Plane Facelift is an effective technique to restore natural-looking and long-term results. This procedure differs from the Mini Lift in that it’s suitable for those who are showing more significant signs of aging. Ideal candidates tend to have droopier skin and heavier jowling of the lower face. This facelift technique is known to be the most effective way to reverse these signs.
The Allure Lux Lift
Like the Deep Plane Lift, The Allure Lux Lift is another great option for those who show advanced sign of aging but is more appropriate for those who have also experienced hollowing and loss of volume in the midface. During the Allure Lux Lift, a Deep Plane facelift will be performed to correct the saggy neck, skin laxity and heavy jowling. Fat Transfer, a method of precisely placing fat microdroplets, is then performed to restore loss of volume of the cheeks and midface to give you an all-around natural and refreshed look.
