“Giving a “Lift” For a Younger-Looking Face: Getting To Know Facelifts Better

What is a facelift?

This is also known as a Rhytidectomy, which comes from two Ancient Greek words “rhytis” (wrinkle) and “ektome” (excision). This literally means the excision or removal of wrinkles through a surgical procedure. The main purpose of a facelift is to give the patient a more youthful appearance.

Who can get a facelift?

The most common belief on who are the best type of people to get a facelift are those women (or sometimes even men) who have reached an old age. They say anyone who is around 40-60 years old can get a facelift since this is usually the age range where people start getting wrinkles.

While there is truth to that belief, take note that the skin’s texture and overall condition are just as important in determining who can best undergo a facelift. Always consult a doctor first before you head straight into a surgical procedure!

However, for you to have an idea on the “criteria” for a person who can undergo a facelift, here are a few example traits:

  • The patient’s skin is flexible and elastic enough.
  • The patient has a strong bone structure to provide enough support for the stretched skin.
  • The patient has realistic expectations of the accomplishments and limitations of a facelift.
  • The patient has good overall health to prevent potential complications.
  • The patient has skin on his/her face or neck that is loose.

The Benefits of a Facelift

The main and most sought after benefit of a facelift is the way it makes women look younger. However, aside from giving women a younger and fresher look, there are a few other great benefits of a facelift which include:

  • All of your loose and saggy facial muscles are tightened and restructured for a better, wrinkle-free face.
  • You don’t only look younger, but you can feel younger as well. An improved and younger appearance often allows women to feel younger too as they look in the mirror and appreciate their fresher-looking face.
  • Even if the facelift procedure is mainly for older women with far developed signs of aging, middle-aged women who are a little bit younger can also have a facelift. You can get a facelift as long as you’re already starting to show signs of aging. The good thing about getting a facelift when you’re a tad bit younger allows for better and faster healing and recovery.
  • The facelift procedure eliminates wrinkles by pulling at loose skin, but the pulling is done in a way that it results in a naturally younger-looking face. The skin is not tightened too much, as this can cause the face to look unnaturally tight and “pulled”.
  • These days the facelift procedure doesn’t just focus on the superficial layer of the face because it now addresses underlying structures such as cheek fat too. These underlying structures can also contribute to the loosening and drooping of skin, but before these structures weren’t given so much attention. However, modern facelifts rearrange these structures before proceeding with pulling and cutting the skin, thus lessening facial tension and lengthening the durability of the facelift.

Where can you get a facelift?

Facelift Westchester clinics are among some of the great places to get a quality facelift that is safe and legit. One of the clinics you can visit, for instance, is Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center, where Dr. Chang Soo Kim can give you the right facelift and other cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Kim is a dedicated doctor who’s driven to lend patients a helping hand at achieving natural beauty with several types of face and body enhancements. He’s greatly valued by his patients due to his caring and warm personality from day one or consultation day to the last days of recovery and follow ups.

Remember though to always make sure you really are “facelift-able” by setting a consultation appointment with Dr. Kim first before the surgical appointment! That way, you can end up with the best results for your face to achieve a wrinkle-free and youthful look!
