There is nothing more rewarding to me than to see someone who has had facial rejuvenation that simply looks younger and more refreshed. The key to achieving this is to avoid as many if not all of the tell tale signs of surgery. Any hint that surgery has been performed will detract from the natural appearance of the face.
There are many techniques to accomplish a natural facial rejuvenation result. The process of selecting the ideal surgery starts with communication. Great communication between patient and plastic surgeon will be needed to determine what is most important to the patient, what the options are, and what the limitations to each option. Often, when we strive to accomplish more–more than a procedure can provide–we may acquire some aspects of a surgical appearance. Therefore, it is critical to have a clear and in-depth discussion about what can be accomplished and what perhaps cannot.
The range of facial rejuvenation procedures include:
- Face lift
- MACS, SMAS, Full, Extended, Deep plane
- Neck lift
- Anterior, limited, full, gland resection
- Fat transfer
- Eye lid lift
- Ear lobe repair
- Skin resurfacing
- Forehead lift or brow lift
Below is a before and after photo as an example of what a natural facial rejuvenation can achieve.
