Overtime you begin to see the slow signs of aging. But what do you do to combat this and what are the best treatment options? Referred to in the surgical world as a rhytidectomy, the facelift is a procedure designed to correct existing signs of aging. The facelift has become one of the most requested cosmetic procedures today as it provides patients with exceptional results. Men and women can both benefit from a facelift surgery, as well as other cosmetic procedures such as a neck lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or facial injections.
During a facelift procedure, a person’s age and gender play as great a role in the technique as his or her quality of skin does. Dr. Hamilton can perform a facelift utilizing a wide array of techniques. Age does play a part in what surgery is performed. Some surgeries, such as a Deep Plane Lift, correct extensive signs of aging, while others like the Mini Face Lift procedure are minimally invasive. A male or female patient in their 50s is much more likely to get away with just having a mini-lift than a patient in their 80s. The tissues of a younger patient are more likely to hold the results of the procedure for a longer time.
Though the results of a facelift procedure will provide rejuvenation that last ten years or longer, routine maintenance can further draw out a youthful look. Laser treatments can be performed to refine the texture of the skin and increase collagen production; Botox injections, dermal injections, and minor lifting procedures such as the brow lift or mini-facelift can be performed alone or in conjunction with procedures to target specific areas that display signs of aging.
