What are the goals of a great face lift? Plastic Surgeons approach the Facelift procedure in a variety of ways. A full Facelift has several components: the Brow lift, the upper eyes, the mid facelift, and the lower facelift. If a patient wants to rejuvenate the face, which of these procedures are generally the most important?
In summary these are the guidelines and primary goals for achieving a great face lift:
- the goal of a facelift is to make you look refreshed and younger, not ‘done’
- plastic surgeons aim for a restructuring of the face, not stretching of the skin
- studies show that other people notice your eyes and upper face first – thus, if you want to improve what other people will notice most, concentrate on the upper face.
- rejuvenation of the face with a combination browlift and mid-facelift usually gives a very natural and refreshed facial rejuvenation without looking stretched or tight.
- caution must be taken with the lower facelift as some techniques used by surgeons stretch the tissues horizontally giving the face a stretched appearance
