A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, can address sagging and other signs of aging in the bottom two-thirds of your face. This procedure rejuvenates your appearance through the removal of excess skin and the lifting and tightening of sagging facial and neck muscles. Dr. Cory Yeh, an Orange County double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs both surgical and non-surgical facelifts.
Over the years, the advances in facelift surgery have allowed surgeons to produce more natural looking results. Facelift surgery is not only fast and safe, it can also effectively add firmness, youth and volume to your skin, while concurrently improving facial contour and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. As such, facelift surgery is one of the most sought out cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. In fact, statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that it ranked among the top procedures performed in 2011.
What can a facelift do for you?
Contrary to popular belief, a facelift in Orange County can do more than just lifting the skin and getting rid of wrinkles. This is particularly true nowadays as advanced facelift techniques are designed to target specific problem areas such as the forehead, eyebrows and eye area. While others target the cheeks, jowls and neck, each facelift technique can be tailored to a patients’ needs and can be performed along with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Who is a good candidate for a Facelift Surgery
In general facelift candidates must be in good physical health and have realistic expectations to be considered for this procedure. The best candidates for facelift surgery are those that show signs of facial aging but have some skin elasticity. Most facelift patients are 30 years of age and older, however, most surgeons look for the following qualities
Good Facial Structure
Good Skin Condition
Surgical versus Non-Surgical Facelift
There is a considerable difference between surgical and non-surgical facelift. The former addresses more serious facial skin problems and the results can last up to 10 years or more. The latter is more of a temporary treatment which deals with tissues associated with the aging process and can last for a couple of months to a few years. As far as facelift procedures are concerned the traditional facelift remains as the most practical solution during and after middle age, when the bodies collagen production slows and aging process becomes more rapid and irreversible.
