The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that over 128,000 Americans have some form of facelift procedure each year. A facelift is intended to help reduce the natural signs of aging in the skin around your neckline and face. Some people will also have a facelift performed in conjunction with a necklift or eyelift. This allows them address several problem areas all at one time instead of having to come back for multiple procedures.
Some of the more common areas a face lift addresses include sagging in the middle of your face, deep creases below the lower eyelids or along the nose and mouth. It can also help mitigate the loss of skin tone and texture in the lower face along with loose skin or excess fatty deposits under the chin.
Some people might also opt for facial implants to accentuate their cheek bones or chin. They might also choose to have a fat augmentation procedure to move unwanted fat from one part of the body and have it placed into the cheek, or chin to give the area prominence, without the use of implants.
Your recovery time will vary depending on how much modification was done to reach your goals as well as your age and quality of aftercare. Your surgeon will advise you on the best way to have a speedy and successful recovery.
