With so many fantastic nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures available today, many patients are able to delay the need for cosmetic surgery for several years or even decades. There often comes a point, however, when the progression of facial aging outruns superficial treatments. On the other hand, some patients simply want to get ahead of the aging process and give their look a boost. In either case, facelift surgery provides the unparalleled opportunity to achieve dramatic, natural-looking, and long-lasting enhancements that can make you look years younger. At Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao is proud to help Tucson, AZ men and women restore a more youthful look they feel confident about with a comprehensive suite of facial rejuvenation surgeries, including the facelift. Discover the benefits of facelift surgery below, and find out just how much younger you may appear after your facelift.
What’s the right age for a facelift?
If you’re like many patients, you may be wondering if you are too old or too young for a facelift. In most cases, the answer is no. With a wide variety of facial rejuvenation techniques available, as well as several different types of facelifts, patients from their 20s to their 70s – and beyond – can benefit from facial enhancement surgery.
Which kind of facelift do I need?
The most appropriate facelift technique for you will depend on a number of personal factors, including your specific concerns, your desired goals, your remaining skin elasticity, and others. Following a comprehensive evaluation and consultation, Dr. Rao may recommend one or more of the following facelifts and/or facial rejuvenation surgeries:
- Full facelift
- Lower facelift
- Mini facelift
- Neck lift
- Brow lift
- Eyelid lift
How much younger will I look after a facelift?
When performed properly by a highly qualified plastic surgeon, facelift surgery can provide remarkably natural-looking results that appear fresh and youthful. Generally speaking, the most dramatic outcomes can be achieved in older patients who undergo more extensive procedures, like a full facelift, though younger patients can certainly take years off their look as well. On average, patients can expect to look about ten years younger after a full facelift.
How long does a facelift last?
The longevity of your facelift results will depend on the elasticity of your skin, your body’s natural rate of aging, genetics, your lifestyle, and many other factors, though most patients enjoy their new look for many, many years after facelift surgery. To preserve your facelift results for as long as possible, be sure to:
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet
- Drink plenty of water
- Do not smoke
- Limit sun exposure
- Wear sunscreen
- Keep the skin moisturized
- Take advantage of nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures
