These days, there are countless ways to look younger and feel better about your appearance. From non-invasive injections to surgical procedures, options run the gamut and can be tailored to suit the patient’s unique needs. One of the most common forms of anti-aging is a facelift. Touted for taking years off the face and leaving you looking younger and fresher looking than before, a facelift is a popular choice for men and women alike. But how do you know if a facelift is right for you? Allow us to explain.
Understanding the Facelift
While many people have a general idea of what a facelift can do for their appearance, it can be helpful to have a more detailed understanding. In short, and as the name implies, a facelift lifts the face. Providing more contour by tightening and redraping the facial skin, a facelift can address unwanted jowls and wrinkles, breathing new life into your face.
Depending on your needs, you may be better suited for a mini facelift or Sub SMAS facelift. However, if you have lost your well-defined jawline, have deep wrinkles in the cheeks, sagging near the cheekbones, loose skin and fat deposits in the neck, or deep lines around the mouth, then a facelift could be for you.
Consider the Endoscopic Brow Lift
An endoscopic brow lift is another excellent option for lifting the face. Pioneered by Dr. Grady Core himself, the brow lift smoothes forehead lines and lifts any excess skin hanging over the brows. There are countless benefits to the endoscopic brow lift. These include: eased muscle tension, a more relaxed appearance, easy combination with other procedures, and less required downtime and recovery. Due to the fact that the endoscopic brow lift requires only small incisions in the scalp, this is the preferred method of choice for lifting the brow.
