Time is one of the strongest forces. It can erode even the tallest of rocky mountains into little more than smooth pebbles.
It’s no wonder that it can make even the prettiest of faces filled with pits, wrinkles and countless other imperfections. Sun, sickness and stress can further exaggerate these effects until you look far older than you actually are.
The good news is that you can reverse some of the effects that time can have upon your skin. You can make your skin smoother and tighter by undergoing a procedure known as a facelift.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a complex set of procedures designed to rejuvenate your face. It may involve pulling your skin in certain directions, relocating fat to different areas, and removing fat to give your face a more rounded appearance, and so on.
The point of the procedure is to rejuvenate your look. This is done by improving the overall look and feel of your skin using techniques like those outlined above.
How Comprehensive is a Facelift?
The effect a facelift has depends upon the procedures used in it. It may incorporate other types of cosmetic surgeries or techniques to enhance their effects. The specifics of each procedure will vary in accordance with the needs of the patient.
Are There Any Risks or Side Effects?
Facelifts are relatively minor surgeries, but they do carry some potential side effects that should always be minimized.
These can include:
- Scarring, which can be minimized by strategically picking incision areas.
- Tenderness or soreness.
The thing to keep in mind about facelifts is that these risks can be minimized. This will keep your facelift surgery as safe as possible while reducing the overall amount of stress your body encounters during the procedure, which will lead to better post-surgery results.
Is a Facelift Right for You?
Facelifts aren’t for everyone. There are many contraindications that could potentially prevent you from being the recipient of a complete procedure, but you may still be eligible for other procedures that can benefit your face.
