Your facial plastic surgeon can do facelift surgery in a number of ways. I have given you some ideas below that may be useful to you in your quest for your perfect facelift look.
*Full face lift – Full face lift is the most popular. It is the term that refers to the surgical procedure that lifts only the upper facial area,but leaves the lower face and neck intact. A “Full face lift” is usually the most complex surgery,a patient will ever go through. Your facelift surgeon like Dr William Portuese will have several options for you,including: bilateral facelift,which is surgery of the entire face; or lateral facelift,which just lifts the eyebrows and the upper cheekbones.
*Tummy Tuck and Face Lift – A tummy tuck is when the stomach muscles are tightened to reduce the appearance of excess skin. This type of surgery is performed on women as well as men.
*Mini-face lift – Mini face lift is a cosmetic surgery that just covers up the wrinkles around the eyes. Some people find it is the best way to get rid of unsightly bags under the eyes.
*Facial Skin Flaps – This is a procedure where the skin is pulled back from the nose and mouth so that the face appears smoother and puffy. It looks like your cheeks are almost swollen out.
*Traction laminectomy – This procedure involves scraping the top layer of skin away from the face so that the skin does not hang over the bridge of the nose. This method is used to treat conditions such as rosacea.
*Liposuction – Liposuction is where an under-layer of fat is removed from the body. It is very effective at removing fat in the upper body but sometimes ends up hurting the skin.
*Vaser Prosthesis – This surgery is where the surgeon makes a graft of tissue to replace the lost skin. This can be used to add skin in cases where the patient’s body does not have sufficient amount of fat cells to support the increased weight.
*Jaw Contouring – The dental implant is implanted into the jawbone to shape the mouth. It is also used to correct conditions such as drooping of the molars.
*Facial Hair Removal – Hair removal is usually done by waxing. If you have large amounts of facial hair,then this may be the best solution for you.
*Liposuction – This is when an under-layer of fat is removed from the body so that the skin does not hang over the bridge of the nose. This method is used to treat conditions such as rosacea.
These procedures are all very common and it can be a great scar to get after your facelift surgery. Keep in mind that whatever procedure you get,your surgeon will be the best one to work with and he or she will make sure that your results are perfect.
