Today many facelift options are appealing to men and women of various ages. Patients often will ask what is the best age for a facelift. That varies on an individual basis, as every face ages differently. Some patients opt to do a little bit of surgery in their early 40's while others wait and decide to do more of a major surgery in their 50's and 60's. Overall, the most important goal is to rejuvenate the patient and produce the most natural outcome, without appearing as if you have had surgery.
Heredity, personal habits, the pull of gravity, and sun exposure contribute to aging of the face. Therefore, facial rejuvenation is tailored specifically to the individual. Individual needs may include a browlift, eyelid surgery, necklift or even replacing the deep grooves or volume loss with fat. Dr. Edween will listen to your goals, assess your facial structure and will create a vision to rejuvenate your face to create the best, most natural results. Successful facial plastic surgery is result of good communication between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations develops in the consulting stage before the surgery is performed.
Nowadays facelifts are more than just pulling the skin as tight as possible, as evidenced by the wind tunneled looks of the past. Dr. Edween uses the most up to date and modern techniques of addressing the "deep plane, or underlying muscles as well as excess skin. The goal is to restore the contours of youth by repositioning muscles where they once were and replacing fat back where it has slowly disappeared. "My patients don't look surgically altered, they look natural and refreshed."
Other rejuvenating options
Limited/Minimal Incision Facelift.
More appropriate for a younger population, these procedures target a specific area. A smaller incision than the traditional facelift is used in front of the ear as a targeted area of skin and underlying tissues is lifted.
Considered a minimal incision facelift, concentrates on lifting the mid portion of the face, in the cheek area, where the descent of this area can cause deep tear troughs and visible nasolabial folds.
Often performed in concert with a facelift to address the excess sagging skin or vertical banding often seen in the neck. A small incision is placed under the neck; the underlying muscles are then pulled in to a position to create a clean angled jaw line.
