What is it?

Although the term facelift is commonly used, in most cases the surgery involves is a neck and face lift, a procedure involving the face and neck to produce a more overall improvement. The surgical procedure repositions deep tissues that have sagged with the passing over time, which are then adapted to the skin to provide a lasting effect.

Today, the results are very natural and great importance is placed on both client’s safety and avoiding technical defects which make it noticeable when a person has had a facelift. Today, the dissections are much less aggressive, the detachment and stretching of the skin more limited and the scars well hidden.

FAQs

How long do the effects of a facelift last?

This surgery provides clear facial rejuvenation. Obviously the client will continue to age, but the starting point is their appearance after surgery. 

Why does this type of surgery have such a bad reputation?

Because of badly performed facelifts by surgeons lacking adequate training. In these cases, the consequences are often highly visible scars, displacement of the hair line in the area of the sideburns, lowering and lengthening of the ears and extreme stretching of the skin, among others. 

Who are the best candidates for a facelift?

The best cases are people with moderate ageing whose skin is in good condition.Although a facelift can be performed at a wide age range, the ideal moment is around the age of 50, if you have developed sagging skin. However, it is safe to say the right moment does not depend on age, but on the state of the skin on the face and neck.
