Facelift: The Benefits of Undergoing Facial Plastic Surgery
By The Landings Surgical Centre on September 11, 2014
At The Landings Surgical Centre here in Halifax, we understand that all treatments must be tailored to the needs of patients. Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau work closely with everyone who comes in to visit their surgical centre, making sure that they understand all of the risks and benefits of any surgery that they undergo.
One particularly helpful surgery is the facelift, which removes lines and wrinkles to make patients look years younger. We want to focus on the benefits of a facelift. As you'll note, not all of the benefits are obvious.
About Facelift Surgery
A facelift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that is performed in order to reduce the sagging and wrinkles in the mid-face area. This includes the wrinkles around the eyes as well as sagging and drooping of the upper cheekbone area. The surgery will involve incisions made behind the ears and along the lower portion of the hairline in order to adjust underlying tissue and tighten the skin of the face.
Reducing Wrinkles Around the Eye Area
The primary benefit of a facelift is that it effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, smooths out lines, and tightens the overall skin of the face. This helps patients look years and years younger as well as energetic and more refreshed.
Improved Facial Appearance Overall
Not only will the facelift improve the appearance of the middle-face area, it will also bring out the best in the patient's other facial features. Just tightening and firming a prominent part of your face can improve other parts of the face as well.
Scars Are Subtle and Well Hidden
As we noted above, the scars are made on the periphery of the face, and your surgeon will work hard to ensure that the incisions remain hidden from view. As patients heal, the incisions should fade, making scars subtle and hard to notice.
Restoring Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem
Many patients who undergo a facelift notice a major change in their self-esteem and self-confidence. The surgery allows for a a sense of total enhancement of aesthetics and wellness, bringing out the best in you.
Adding Vitality to Your Professional Life
If you are involved in a career that involves lots of public appearances of personal interactions with clients, a facelift can actually improve those first impressions and last impressions. Your appearance and improved confidence can go a long way toward making a convincing case for your business or professional proposal.
Is a facelift right for me?
While a facelift is an effective treatment option for many people, it is not always the ideal answer for everyone's needs. Some patients may find that a facial lift that targets another part of the body, such as the forehead (brow lift) or the jowls (lower facelift), may be more ideal for their facial rejuvenation needs.
During your consultation at our practice, we will be sure to go over all of these matters in full detail, addressing your unique needs for facial rejuvenation and aesthetic enhancement. We can even help design a total makeover to enhance the overall look of your face as needed.
