Those who may consider undergoing a facelift procedure are typically seeking to reduce the side effects of aging. Specifically, the side effects best treated by a facelift include, but are not limited to, loose skin, deep-set wrinkles, sagging around the neck and jawline, and more.
If you are seriously considering or are already planning to get a facelift, you may be interested in learning more about other procedures you can get alongside it that can improve the final result and take years off of your face.
While a facelift on its own can do a lot to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline, those who have considerably loose skin under their neck may want to consider talking to their surgeon about taking the right steps to remedy it. Specifically, if you find yourself struggling with the development of intense loose skin under your neck, an additional necklift may be a viable solution.
While facelifts do a lot to relieve facial sagging, they do not serve to fill sunken areas that may be affecting your entire face shape. If you are thinking about getting a facelift but are unsure about whether it will enhance any sunken facial features, consider injectable fillers, which are a non-invasive procedure commonly used alongside facelifts in order to fill out parts of the face that have been negatively affected by aging, usually under the eyes and the cheeks.
A facelift will not be the most effective in addressing any facial scars, blemishes, or sun damage. Laser resurfacing, however, can provide relief in that regard.
Laser resurfacing, also known photorejeuvenation, is a skincare procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light that improve the appearance of skin. The procedure does not typically take a very long time, nor is it necessarily painful; this makes it a viable option alongside a facelift.
No two individuals are exactly alike. An experienced and qualified surgeon should always make sure that you are a suitable candidate for a facelift and any other procedure you may consider alongside it. Keep in mind that not all individuals should undergo more than one procedure at a time.
