Men and women with increased skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles are often embarrassed that the signs of aging have developed. They may miss their more youthful appearance with soft, supple, firm skin and smooth appearance. In situations where the development of fine lines and wrinkles have occurred, it may be time for patients to talk to a plastic surgeon in the Las Vegas, NV area about the benefits of a facelift.
What is a facelift?
The facelift procedure is perhaps the most commonly known facial surgery performed by cosmetic plastic surgeons. The facelift is used to reduce relaxed skin while tightening it and smoothing away unwanted fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. It can also help define the jawline, reducing the appearance of hanging jowls. This procedure is performed in a way to reduce scarring at the incision points, as incisions are made in behind the ear or within the hairline to easily disguise them. By hiding incisions in the hairline and behind the ear, patients will not have to deal with the telltale signs of plastic surgery with noticeable scars.
What other options are available to me?
Not every patient is a proper candidate for a surgical facelift. In fact, many patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may be better suited for less invasive or nonsurgical approaches. This may include:
- Facial fillers/dermal fillers
- Neuromodulators (Botox)
- Collagen stimulators
- Silhouette Instalift
- HydraFacial MD
When patients consult with their doctor about their concerns, many of these alternative treatments may be discussed with the plastic surgeon as alternatives. These treatments are often suggested by our team when patients are not ideal candidates for the facelift surgery or may benefit from a more conservative option.
