When it comes to facelifts, many people believe that there is just procedure. This is not the case however. There are different types of facelift procedures and which is used will depend on what results you want to achieve.
Below is an explanation of each type of facelift so you can decide which is best for you.
- Full facelift
A full facelift, as the name suggests, focuses on tightening the skin across the entire face. A full facelift is an excellent choice if you want to achieve a more youthful appearance overall and reduce lines and wrinkles on your face. A full facelift is the most common of the 3 facelift procedures and is performed on thousands of men and women each year.
- Mid facelift
A mid facelift focuses on the middle part of the face, and will help to rejuvenate the skin around the eyes as well as the cheeks. Wrinkles around the eyes and a loss of volume in the cheeks are very common as we age and a mid facelift provides an excellent way to combat these problems. A mid facelift is often used in conjunction with dermal fillers in order to add volume to the cheeks.
- Lower facelift
A lower facelift, sometimes called a necklift, is perfect for patients who want to reduce sagging skin below the chin. Sagging skin underneath the chin is particularly prevalent in people who are over the age of 60 but it can affect younger people too. A lower facelift will help to significantly reduce the sagging skin in this area and provides a very naturally youthful look that can take years off you.
