Natural Facelift: Artistry and Medicine Combined
If you have been considering a facelift to rejuvenate your appearance, but are concerned about relying wholly on a surgical intervention to achieve the results you want, then there is an option you should explore. It’s called the Natural Facelift, and it combines injectable fillers with an advanced surgical approach that lifts the skin and facial structures at a natural angle.
By injecting natural tissues such as collagen or fat into the facial tissues, the patient receives a natural lift that can minimize the amount of surgery required to achieve desired results. A Natural Facelift also may include tightening of the neck and facial muscles, as well as neck liposuction, to remove excess fat beneath the chin that often results in the appearance of a double chin. In order for the entire face to be achieve balance, the Natural Facelift may incorporate eyelid and browlift surgery.
By combining the artistry of injectables with the medicine of advanced surgical techniques, the dreaded “pulled” or “stretched” look of most facelifts is avoided. The result is a younger, rejuvenated, more natural “you.”
Turning Back the Hands of Time
Many factors comprise the approach to a Natural Facelift, including basic bone structure, skin type, skin elasticity, ethnic background, your personal healing time, and your expectations. Keep in mind, however, that a Natural Facelift cannot stop the aging process, nor can a Natural Facelift change the quality or texture of the skin. A Natural Facelift can, however, give you a more freshened and rested appearance, with the potential to make you look as much as 10 years younger.
Is the Natural Facelift Right for You?
So, how do you know if the Natural Facelift is right for you? First, if you are interested in improving the signs of aging in your face and/or neck, then then Natural Facelift may be an excellent option for you. Many Natural Facelift patients are often looking to address creases below the eyes, nasolabial folds, sagging in the midface area, loose skin and fat in the chin and jaw, and/or jowls. Second, you should also be in good overall health, should not smoke, and should be realistic about your goals for improvement. A consultation is the best way to determine if a Natural Facelift is your best choice. Third, you need to be able to allow for ample recovery time.
Recovery usually takes 10 to 14 days, although some patients go back to work in seven days with makeup. Makeup and sunscreen can be worn after seven days. In addition, it is important that you maintaining your Natural Facelift, which requires annual skin care treatments and the replenishment of facial volume (with injectables) as it diminishes.
The Natural Facelift is a wonderful way to defy the aging process and, for most, the benefits that are gained are never lost.
