Facelift or Facial Rejuvenation
You may have asked yourself, "If I feel so good, why should I look so old?" and indeed, you don't have to! If you are showing signs of aging, or appear prematurely aged, your appearance can be turned back fifteen to twenty years. You can look younger without any of the stretched, tell-tale signs of having had a facelift.
A well performed procedure, using the most medically advanced techniques, is the most predictable way of restoring the appearance of youth. We can provide you with a long-lasting, natural, and youthful appearance, while continuing to look like yourself.
If you are considering a facelift, you should research your options. Facelift procedures vary, and so are the results. Beware of the clever catch-phrase quickie lifts (e.g. "smart," "life," "lunch hour," "S-lift," "mini," etc.) These are ALL mini lifts. Despite the fact that they are heavily marketed today, these are outdated procedures. They were performed in the 1920s and 1930s. The results are both limited and disappointing. They are performed today generally by practitioners of limited training. The medical science of facial rejuvenation has come a long way since then, so don't settle for hundred-year-old technology when it comes to your health and appearance. At Fairbanks Plastic Surgery, you can expect to receive optimal results with state of the art science.
Facial rejuvenation surgery should not be confused with facial resurfacing procedures, such as laser, chemical peel, or dermabrasion. Facial resurfacing refers to skin surface destruction, which then heals on the surface only. While beneficial in many cases, you cannot expect to attain anything like the rejuvenation and youthful appearance to be had through a medically advanced and well-performed facelift operation.
The most important things to avoid when considering a facelift procedure are the tell-tale signs of having had a facelift. Only a natural looking, younger appearance should be acceptable to you. Inferior facelift procedures result in the loss of sideburns, obvious scars, hair loss, or unsightly stitch or staple marks. These undesirable results are known as facelift stigmata. At Fairbanks Plastic Surgery, we have been able to avoid these unsightly features. Our perfected, medically advanced procedure will give you the youthful appearance you want without looking tight, stretched, or strange. We also employ special techniques to minimize bruising and swelling. Patients can generally plan to resume public appearances in 12 - 14 days.
