The ageing of the face is inevitable. As the year’s pass, the skin of the face and neck begins to fall. The line of the jaw is softened, excess tissue is generated in the front of the neck, and a double chin is formed.
Rhytidectomy, also called facelift, can improve your appearance and self-confidence. The goal of a facelift procedure, whether via surgery or by therapy, is to improve the overall appearance of the face. A facelift cannot stop ageing nor can you turn back the needles of time. It will improve fine wrinkles to some extent. What facelift without surgery can do is help your face look its best and give you a healthier and more youthful appearance.
Initially, the neck is treated. Liposuction is used to remove excess fat. If the neck muscle under your chin (platysma) falls off, it will be modelled back into a more natural position. The incision of the facelift is started in the hair area of the temple, in front and just above the ear, and continues towards the lobe, surrounding the ear, and ends at the hairline behind the ear. In all cases, the incision is located where it will fall into the natural folds of skin in search of hiding.
For men, the incision is adjusted to accommodate the natural lines of the beard. The skin rises outward, and then reposition and tense the underlying muscles and connective tissue. After trimming the excess skin, the incisions are closed with fine sutures and metal clasps, and a bandage is placed to protect the entire area. The surgery takes approximately four hours.
FACIAL STRETCHING “CHEEK UPLIFT” (FACE STRETCHING OF THE MIDDLE SECTION OF THE FACE)
The midface or cheek uplift is a procedure that raises the cheeks vertically opposite to the fall produced by gravity and creates a more natural, youthful and relaxed appearance. Unlike other facelifts, the antigravity facelift leaves no visible scars on patients.
A non-surgical facelift stretch helps to rejuvenate lower sections of sunken eyes, stretches the corners of the mouth and softens the lines produced by smiling. Also, it has been proven that this technique returns fullness to the cheeks and helps to reposition lines on fallen cheeks. It is an ideal procedure for those who are around 40 or who are in their early 60s.
Some of the benefits of cheek lift without surgery are to improve the smile, raise cheekbones and remove the marks that over the years have been created. The objective is to adapt the expression and features of the individual to a more youthful aspect, remove the fat from the face, tighten the facial muscles and redistribute the skin and thus, giving a better appearance to the complexion and neck completely.
