Procedures You Can Combine With a FaceliftPosted on August 12, 2020
Facelift techniques have advanced dramatically in recent years to produce subtle and natural-looking results. A facelift can reverse signs of aging like jowls, sagging skin in the midface, and deep creases below the eyes and at the corners of the mouth. The results are a smoother, younger-looking face with a more defined jawline. Many patients also choose to combine their facelift with another procedure.
By combining plastic surgery procedures, you can achieve your ideal look faster and with a single recovery period. A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon can combine procedures to give you a naturally younger and fresher appearance, as well as bring your facial features into better harmony.
Here are a few recommended procedures that can greatly complement your facelift results.
A facelift corrects the effects of aging in the middle and lower part of the face — below your eyes. A brow lift, or forehead lift, restores a younger look to the upper part of the face. It subtly raises droopy eyebrows for a more alert look. It also smooths the lines and furrows on the forehead and between the eyebrows that can make a person appear angry, sad, or tired.
By combining a facelift with a brow lift, you’ll get a more complete refresh of your face without additional recovery time. You’ll look younger, more relaxed, and more alert.
The other upper-face procedure that is commonly combined with a facelift is eyelid surgery. The same aging process that causes the skin on the lower face and around the jaws to stretch and sag can cause the eyelids to droop, giving you a sleepy and prematurely aged appearance.
Upper eyelid surgery can make the eyes appear brighter, younger, and more attentive, and can remove fatty deposits from the lids that make them heavy and difficult to raise fully. Lower eyelid surgery lifts drooping lower lids and reduces the puffy appearance caused by fat buildup below the eyes.
Combining a facelift with eyelid surgery shifts the focus of your face from loose, hanging skin around your jawline to brighter, more beautiful, and alert eyes.
Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty
Nose surgery or rhinoplasty can also be performed in combination with a facelift. As the central feature of the face, the nose defines your appearance in important ways. Nose surgery can change the size or shape of the nose in many ways and is a highly customized procedure. It can change the shape of the tip of your nose, modify the bridge of your nose, narrow the span between your nostrils, and even change the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
Rhinoplasty can be performed to make subtle changes that keep your nose in harmony with your rejuvenated face after a facelift. Or it can be done to make more significant changes to your nose to bring it into better balance with your other facial features.
