Our facial features are the first thing others notice about us. We want to create a positive image in another’s mind, and we become less happy about our appearance as we age and mature. The smooth skin of our youth has become brittle and shows wrinkles. Sagging along the jawline becomes apparent. Fat deposits beneath the skin result in folds and creases. A facelift, known in medical circles as a rhytidectomy procedure, can correct most of these problems. The question most adults ask at some point is obvious. Am I now a suitable candidate for a facelift procedure? Outcome expectations vary from one individual to another. That’s where we come in. We specialize in facelift surgery consultations and the procedure itself, and we welcome questions from our Folsom-area residents who desire more information.
What Does a Facelift Correct?
A traditional facelift is performed by repositioning the skin on the lower one-half of the face. The skin is pulled away from the subcutaneous tissues so that excess fat can be removed. In some cases, a small amount of muscle tissue may be relocated or removed. This allows the skin to be draped back over the subdermal tissues so that it lays flatter. The skin is also pulled upward and outward just a bit. The result is smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and sags. Candidates for this procedure are adult men and women experiencing creasing on the cheeks, moderate wrinkling on the face, and sagging of skin along the jawline.
Is This Procedure Right for Me?
We will need to consult with the client at our office in Folsom and take a close look at the facial features before recommending facelift surgery. We will ask about the expectations of the client and inform them of the limitations placed on each type of surgery. If we and the client agree that a facelift is a viable solution to the age-related concerns, we will schedule a surgery date and give the client information that will help them to prepare.
Once recovery is complete, the facial skin will be smoother, appear to be tauter and suppler, and free from moderate wrinkles and crow’s feet. Most clients enjoy positive results lasting for up to a decade.
