Let's Face it... aging of the face is inevitable. A Facelift is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the aging face by removing accumulated fat, re-supporting underlying facial tissues, and removing excess skin to achieve a more youthful, smoother facial appearance. The lower third of the face is targeted for refinement; therefore, a Facelift does not eliminate forehead wrinkles, bags under the eyes, or crow's feet.
Dr. Bassichis believes that modern Facelift surgery is not about simply applying the same technique to every patient. In older style Facelift surgeries, the skin was pulled tightly back leading to an artificial, windswept or "done" appearance. Our priority at the Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center is to create harmony and beauty through judicious tightening and volume restoration to yield more natural outcomes for our Dallas-Fort Worth Facelift patients.
These 'restorative' Facelift procedures which Dr. Bassichis performs evoke more beautiful, natural-looking results that allow our patients' beauty to shine. We have found that successful Facelift surgery is a result of good rapport and trust between patient and surgeon where communication and mutually realistic expectations allow the best possible results. As well, with our complete Facial Health Maintenance Program TM, we can customize a regimen of skin care and treatments to promote and optimize your surgical outcome.
The Facelift procedure employs advanced techniques that lift and reposition the underlying facial tissues and remove excess skin. All incisions are carefully hidden in folds or creases to provide effective camouflage and avoid any hair loss or abnormal hair lines. Recovery time is about a week to 14 days. After recovery, you can expect a more rested and youthful looking you, with dramatic improvement in the lower two-thirds of the face. Although the results of a Facelift can last for many years, it is important to remember that everyone continues to age. While a Facelift cannot stop the aging process, wonders of facial plastic surgery can make a person appear a decade younger than their actual age. A Facelift makes aging gracefully and beautifully, a reality.
Is a Facelift for me?
A Facelift offers a way for your appearance to reflect your youthful inner spirit. If you would like a Facelift in order to feel better about yourself and are looking for improvement, not perfection, then a Facelift may be a good option for you. The best candidates for elective facial rejuvenation surgery are those with good facial skin elasticity, in good physical and psychological health, who are non-smokers. We look forward to speaking to you more about Facelifts at your complimentary consultation.
