Considering a Facelift? How to Combine Procedures for Full Facial Rejuvenation
Choosing to undergo a facelift can be a transformative decision, and if necessary, combining the procedure with other facial cosmetic surgeries will enhance your overall results.
Maximizing facelift results through the strategic combination of complementary facial cosmetic surgeries requires an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who can tailor the procedures to meet the unique needs of their patients.
By considering the balance of facial features and creating a custom surgical plan, a comprehensive facial rejuvenation approach can deliver natural results that best restore a more youthful version of yourself.
What Can a Facelift Achieve on its Own?
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is designed to address multiple signs of aging in the mid-to-lower face and neck by stretching, lifting, and tightening sagging skin and underlying tissues. This procedure can accomplish the following:
- Reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles.
- Provide smoother, firmer skin from the neck to the cheeks.
- Enhance volume in the cheeks and hollowed areas of the lower face.
- Remove or redistribute fatty deposits.
The Importance of Your Plastic Surgery Consultation
Addressing multiple aspects of visible aging in the face and neck ensures a comprehensive facial rejuvenation and a more balanced and natural-looking outcome. This process begins when you schedule an in-depth consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon.
The doctor will review your medical history, evaluate your facial anatomy, and ask about your aesthetic concerns and goals. They will then recommend the procedures that can best meet your unique needs.
This personalized approach helps to ensure that the chosen surgical enhancements will provide your desired results.
5 Cosmetic Surgeries to Consider Adding to Your Facelift
A facelift is the gold standard for facial rejuvenation: it can tighten sagging skin, eliminate wrinkles, and reveal more sculpted, youthful contours. However, the secret of natural yet stunning plastic surgery results is cohesion.
If you have additional signs of aging around the neck and eyes, you may want to consider combining procedures. The following five cosmetic facial surgeries can be performed during your facelift:
1. Neck Lift
A neck lift focuses on tightening and smoothing loose neck skin while eliminating neck banding and is almost always combined with a facelift. Enhancing a facelift with a neck lift ensures a seamless transition between the lower face and neck, avoiding a mismatch in rejuvenation.
2. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Blepharoplasty can dramatically improve the appearance of droopy upper eyelids or under-eye bags for a younger, more refreshed, and engaged look.
3. Brow or Forehead Lift
A brow lift addresses the upper face by elevating a sagging brow and reducing forehead lines to make you appear more inviting and approachable.
4. A Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)
If you have always wanted to improve the size or shape of your nose, combining cosmetic nose surgery with your facelift is a convenient and cost-saving way to address this issue.
5. Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
When large or protruding ears (another often long-standing cosmetic concern) have caused you to be self-conscious about your appearance, consider adding cosmetic ear surgery.
3 Non-Surgical Facial Treatments You Can Add to Your Facelift
Your plastic surgeon may also suggest complementing your facelift with non-surgical treatments after healing from your procedure. These treatments may include:
1. Injectable Facial Fillers
When facial volume loss is extensive, dermal fillers can add additional fullness for enhanced facial contours and a younger-looking appearance.
2. Laser Resurfacing or Chemical Peels
Poor skin texture and discoloration can be improved with laser facial treatments or chemical peels to improve the overall quality of your skin and a more radiant complexion.
3. RF Microdeedling With Morpheus8™
Morpheus8™ combines microneedling with radiofrequency and is an advanced technique that is also used to address problems with skin texture, including sun-damaged skin blemishes, active acne, and acne
Full Facial Harmony
Integrating complementary surgical and non-surgical treatments with your facelift can prevent unbalanced and potentially asymmetric results for facial rejuvenation that is in sync.
Cost-Efficiency and Reduced Overall Downtime
Combating facial aging by combining cosmetic procedures allows for consolidated downtime rather than separate recovery periods. Bundling procedures can also be cost-effective compared to undergoing each surgery individually, as you can save on facility and anesthesia fees.
