Your skin changes throughout your life, and your face is often the first reflection of your age. Over the years, lines and wrinkles form as your skin gets thinner and more delicate. Repetitive facial expressions, sun damage, and collagen loss all contribute to aging skin.
Cheeks lose volume, skin gets crepey, and wrinkles form around your eyes, nose, and mouth. While you can’t stop the hands of time, you don’t have to settle for skin that makes you look older than you feel.
A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that can freshen your features, tightens sagging skin, and give you a more youthful look. But sometimes, facelifts get a bad rap. We’ve all seen celebrities with lips that are too big and skin that’s too tight.
So how can you ensure that your facelift looks natural and beautiful without being overdone? Turn to Christopher Brooks, MD, and our team at Brooks Plastic Surgery for the best cosmetic surgery in Hollywood, Florida. In this blog, we’re sharing the secrets behind how to get a natural-looking facelift.
Find an expert in facelift techniques
The key to getting natural-looking results is getting treated by a skilled plastic surgeon who understands the complex structures of the face. During your facelift consultation, Dr. Brooks evaluates your face and talks with you about what you hope to achieve with surgery. He considers a number of factors, such as:
- Your age
- Volume your face has lost
- Damage your skin has suffered
- Any asymmetries or irregularities
- Your goals for cosmetic surgery
Most facelift procedures involve small, discrete incisions around the ears or scalp to tighten skin. Fat transfer procedures can redistribute volume in the face and restore a youthful look. Scars from treatment are nearly invisible, and the results are naturally beautiful.
Dr. Brooks takes a conservative approach to facelifts and cosmetic surgery, enhancing your natural beauty without making your face look tight or overdone. A natural-looking facelift can boost your confidence and give you a new lease on life.
Get the right facelift for your concern
At Brooks Plastic Surgery, we make personalized facelift recommendations for each patient. A successful facelift is one that addresses your areas of concern while highlighting your best features.
An upper facelift, or brow lift, tackles the signs of aging above the eyes. Sagging brows can make you look tired and make your eyes look small. Upper facelifts lift your eyebrows and minimize forehead wrinkles to make you look more awake and more youthful.
A midface procedure addresses the eye area, cheeks, nose, and lips. With age often comes lost volume in the cheeks that can make your face appear sunken and older. A facelift in this region can restore volume, erase nasolabial folds, and perk up sagging lips.
If sagging skin in your lower face or neck is what’s bothering you, a lower facelift will treat the area below the corners of your mouth. A facelift in this region can tighten the skin around your chin and neck and take years off your look and restore your profile.
Cosmetic surgery is a personal decision, and we do our best to make sure you feel confident in your choice. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Brooks Plastic Surgery today.
