Facelift Surgery Dallas

A facelift can impede the onset of middle age, helping our patients to feel like a refreshed, younger version of themselves This procedure provides our patients with a boost of confidence, helping their appearance to represent the youthful energy that they still possess. For a better understanding of how a facelift turns back the clock, it helps to know exactly how we age and what it does to our face as time moves on.

The Effects of Aging on Your Face

We are all born with a certain amount of skin elasticity that begins to fade as soon as we reach our early 20s. The gradual slackening of skin contributes to the ever-changing shape of our face, leading to:

  • Wrinkles and lines forming in the corners of our mouths.
  • Excess skin hanging from our necks.
  • Fat accumulating around our chins.

By the time we reach our 40’s or 50’s, our appearance can begin to look completely different than how it once did from younger years.

Reversing the Effects of Middle Age

A facelift focuses on the lower face consisting of the chin, neck, cheeks (also known as jowls) and nasolabial folds. By making small incisions in the hairline, Dr. Bassichis can tighten muscles that have slackened over time and also remove unsightly fat that has accumulated in unwanted places, such as the chin and neck. When the procedure is complete, the lower third of the patient’s face will be more smooth and tighter than it has been in years.

Additional Procedures That Complement a Facelift

Because a facelift only addresses the lower third of the face, there are additional surgical procedures that can enhance the results of a facelift. Many Dallas patients have benefitted from combining the following procedures with a facelift for a full facial rejuvenation:

  • Brow lift: Tightening the area around the brow to raise the brows and smooth lines and wrinkles that can cause our patients to look upset or angry.
  • Eye lift: For patients with bags under their eyes or excess skin that droops into their line of vision, an eye lift opens up the eyes by removing skin and fat deposits to refocus attention on the eyes.
  • Dermal fillers/Fat grafting: In the years following a facelift, volume loss will continue as the effects of gravity continue to sag facial features. Dermal fillers offer the opportunity to maintain a facelift for longer time periods without losing the fresh new look.
  • CO2 Laser Resurfacing: These non-surgical treatments help with the overall texture by stimulating the collagen beneath the surface to provide more youthful looking skin.

During the consultation, Dr. Bassichis will perform an examination to determine the best approach – as well as eliminate any concerns that you may have regarding the process – of improving your appearance.

The Benefits of a Facelift

In addition to taking years of of your appearance, there are also several inherent benefits in the procedure. Facelifts can help to restore confidence and lost vitality by aligning your physical appearance with the way you feel.

As the premiere facelift expert in Dallas, Dr. Bassichis is committed to helping you choose the right option to successfully recapture that younger, more refreshed version of yourself.

Facelift Dallas

 

A facelift is the perfect way to recapture ten or fifteen years that have slipped by with one simple procedure. But like most patients who come to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Dallas, they are likely wondering how long to expect these results to last. Most of the results depends on the patient and how they care for their skin after the procedure.

Factors That Influence Your Facelift Results

Everyone knows that genetics play a large role in determining the way that people age, and some are luckier than others. But there are also factors within their control that can promote the optimal skin health needed to extend the results of a facelift. By refraining from these behaviors, patients will be more likely to look youthful many years after their facelift:

  • Smoking: Many people don’t recognize how detrimental smoking is, not only to their health, but also to their appearance. Smoking causes wrinkles to form and skin to become sallow and lackluster. Quit smoking before a facelift in order to gain a fresh start.
  • Weight fluctuation: Losing and gaining, gaining and losing – if a patient’s weight is unstable, it can cause jowls to form and skin to grow slack before its time. Maintaining a stable weight will not only be good for the body, but help the skin to stay supple for longer.
  • Sun without protection. The days of tanning for hours on end have ceased. To preserve skin from sun damage, stay out of the sun in the peak hours (10 am to 2 pm). When going outside, it is important to wear high SPF sunscreen and protective clothing to shield yourself from harmful UVA and UVB rays that can cause wrinkles, age spots, and even skin cancer.

By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and carefully caring for their skin, patients’ facelift results can last an average of ten years. Another trick to keeping the results up to par is through skin care, which helps to nourish the skin with essential nutrition that it needs to keep healthy.

Skin Care and Other Beneficial Treatments

Facelifts can be considered to be similar to a time machine. It’s like having a fresh slate again to begin all of the good skincare practices that never got practiced before. When patients come to our Dallas office, advice is offered for follow-up care in the form of products and procedures to enhance their newfound youth. This includes:

  • Skin care formulated for their skin type and its needs: As we grow older, our skin can benefit from using different treatments or more refined products to provide dazzling results. We recommend products that will keep our patients’ skin radiant and revitalized long after their facelift.
  • Procedures to address aging over time: While a facelift is excellent to restore the middle of the face and neck from sagging, lines and wrinkles, it does not address volume loss or age spots. For those problems, we encourage patients to explore dermal fillers to regain youthful volume and laser treatment to remove age spots and visibly tighten skin.

To preserve youth regained through a facelift, it is important to dedicate time to a healthier lifestyle which will allow patients to enjoy the results for longer while providing a better quality of life in general.
