Surgical vs. Non-surgical Facelift

From retinol peels to microdermabrasion, it seems we're always chasing the newest strategies to take a few years off our face. But the world of anti-ageing is chock-full of rumours and misinformation, making the search for firm, youthful skin a sometimes scary place.

There’s no harm in having wrinkles and sagging skin. A few facial lines can be endearing and add character to your face. But it’s no secret that many of us would prefer to keep them in check.

Everyone’s skin ages, which is why the skin of a young child and the skin of a 90-year-old looks very different. Skin loses elasticity as we age because collagen production slows down over time. This process can be exacerbated by a variety of factors, including sun exposure, pollution, and certain lifestyle habits. As you get older, your skin tends to become thinner and drier, too. When your skin doesn’t have as much moisture or volume as it used to, it can also make it more prone to wrinkles.

The appearance and shape of your face are altered because of normal age-related changes. Your skin becomes less elastic and looser, and fat deposits decrease in some areas of your face and increase in others. Age-related changes in your face that may be reduced with a face-lift include the following:

  • Sagging appearance of your cheeks
  • Excess skin at your lower jawline (jowls)
  • Deepening of the fold of skin from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth
  • Sagging skin and excess fat in the neck (if the procedure includes a neck lift)

Without medical or surgical intervention, it can be challenging to reverse the appearance of wrinkles once you have them.

Surgical vs. Non-surgical facelift

Nowadays we have 2 options to maintain our looks – Surgical facelift and non-surgical facelift. A face-lift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a younger appearance in your face. The procedure can reduce the sagging or folds of skin on the cheeks and jawline and other changes in the shape of your face that occur with age.

During a face-lift, a flap of skin on each side of the face is pulled back, and tissues below the skin are surgically altered to return the contour of the face to a more youthful shape. Before the flap is sutured closed, excess skin is removed.

A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done as part of a face-lift to reduce fat deposits and sagging skin on the neck.
A facelift won't decrease fine creases or wrinkles in your skin or damage from sun exposure. Other cosmetic procedures can address the appearance or quality of the skin itself.

For maximum results, many patients can combine with other treatment such as laser or any kind of medical spa to achieve skin goals. Face & Neck Lift, the surgery begins with the use of general anaesthesia. This will allow for the best surgical experience. An incision will then be made along the hairline and in the natural creases of the skin near the ear to hide any possible scars. Depending on the amount of work being completed,

Additional incisions may be made in the upper lip or lower eyelids, or under the chin. Through these incisions, fat and underlying tissues are sculpted and redistributed to form the desired contours.

Muscles and other deep tissues may be lifted, tightened, or otherwise altered. Excess skin is trimmed away to reduce sagging, and then the remaining skin is pulled tight across the new contours of the face.

A less invasive alternative to this traditional facelift technique is the limited incision facelift, wherein the procedure is performed through shorter incisions at the temples, around the ear, and potentially through the lower eyelids or upper lip. If you do not undergo surgery, cause of many reasons, not ready to have anaesthesia or financial matters, you may try a non-surgical facelift at Lumina Aesthetics Clinic Bali. HIFU High Intensity
