As with any other form of cosmetic surgery, getting a great result with a facelift requires great skill and precision on the part of the surgeon. There are certain keys to a great result that every good surgeon aims for. A facelift is a procedure that combines artistry with science so getting a great result isn’t just about performing a medical procedure but also achieving a desirable aesthetic outcome.
With this in mind, below are the 5 biggest secrets to a great facelift result.
- Improved skin quality
One of the biggest secrets to a great facelift result is improved skin quality. A facelift is often combined with fillers in order to give the skin a smoother and fully appearance. The core thing that many patients desire when getting a facelift is to have better quality skin so this is vitally important.
- A more youthful appearance
The main purpose of a facelift is to combat the natural signs of aging that affect the face, namely loose and sagging skin as well as lines and wrinkles. When performed correctly, a facelift is a very effective way to get a more youthful appearance.
- Discreet incisions
The last thing that any patient who is getting cosmetic surgeries wants are scars that are noticeable. The good news is that with a facelift the incisions are made in areas that are very discreet and not visible most of the time. The incisions are usually made at the ears and/or hairline so they are not noticeable at all in most situations.
- Meeting the patient’s expectations
This is extremely important. Although the surgeon will have an idea of how best to tackle a particular facelift, it’s always vital to keep in mind the results that the patient desires.
- A natural look
One of the things that facelift surgeons hear most from patients is that they do not want an unnatural look where people can tell they’ve had work done. The dreaded ‘stretched’ or ‘wind tunnel’ look is easily avoided providing the surgeon is reputable and experienced.
Book a consultation
If you’re interested in getting a facelift then the first step is to book a consultation. At the consultation you’ll be able to have all your questions answered and have the surgery explained to you in detail, including the risks and recovery.
