Here at Paul Sabini, MD we understand that in time, gravity, sun exposure and the stresses of daily life take a toll on our faces and necks. Deep creases can appear beside the mouth, the jaw line slackens and becomes jowly, and the neck can develop loose folds and fat deposits. Facelifts can counteract these signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, resulting in giving your face a fresher, youthful look.
Facelift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, varies in range from minimally invasive “lunchtime lifts” to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. However, facelifts do not stop the aging process and in time the signs of aging will gradually appear once again. Ideal candidates for facelift surgery share these certain important traits:
- Skin elasticity:A good facelift candidate will have skin that retains some of its natural suppleness and flexibility. This is important because, during the procedure Dr. Sabini will tighten the facial skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Healing with optimal results depends on having skin that is able to conform to its new and improved contrours.
- Strong bone structure:Facelift candidates that have well-defined underlying bone structure will provide the support needed to contribute to satisfying results.
- Have realistic expectations:Candidates should understand not only what facelifts can accomplish, but also the limitations of facial plastic surgery procedures (even though we are good, we cannot stop the aging process).
- Good overall health:Since facelift surgery is an invasive procedure that requires significant healing and recovery, it is essential that the patient be physically prepared for the surgery.
During your consultation, Dr. Sabini will discuss whether you an ideal candidate for a facelift. Furthermore, patients that want to improve their brow, eyelids, nose and some of the mid-face area, may consider combining a facelift with a brow lift, a mid-face lift or eyelid surgery. Injectable soft-tissue fillers, facial implants and skin resurfacing can also enhance the effects of a facelift.
