If you are ready to reset the clock on your appearance, look no further than a facelift. It’s a cosmetic procedure that is suitable for both men and women. The procedure lifts sagging jowls, decreases extra padding that contributes to unwanted roundness/softness, and leaves behind a more chiseled and defined appearance, especially around the cheeks, jawline, and neck. A facelift is extremely beneficial for both men and women because it targets areas of their face and neck, they are unhappy with and leaves behind little to no evidence. Women benefit because it restores the smooth, supple, and graceful contours for a naturally rejuvenated appearance. The facelift benefits adult men and women regardless of age.
Enhances Personal Satisfaction
One of the biggest effects of aging for men on their faces is a softening of features that decrease the masculinity of their appearances. Aging naturally causes the skin and muscles of the face and neck to shift downward and droop, causing less definition, especially around the jawline. Many men find these concerns bothersome as they impair their ability to shave and perform other grooming tasks and makes them feel less attractive or desirable. A facelift eliminates those issues by restoring the ruggedness, masculinity, and youth to their appearance and boosts their confidence.
Women choose it for natural rejuvenation purposes to soften their features and preserve an attractive, youthful appearance as they experience the adverse effects of aging, hormonal imbalances, and life. Wrinkles, frown lines, loose pooling skin, and other unwanted skin concerns decrease one’s self-esteem and confidence. Regardless of need or skin concerns, the facelift is a solution that is extremely beneficial to both men and women. A younger and more desirable appearance is possible for everyone, regardless of age or gender. Thanks to the facelift, the physical signs of aging in the face or neck are temporary and cosmetically reversible.
Enhances Desirable Features
Aging decreases the fullness of one’s appearance leading to lines, creases, and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth, creating an older and harsh look. Many people feel self-conscious once these lines start to appear. In many cases, wrinkles are a premature sign of aging that is hard to ignore or camouflage. A facelift doesn’t boost collagen production. Instead, it allows Dr. Hershcovitch to reshape the contours of the face to restore fullness. He strategically repositions excess and unwanted fat tissues and may also incorporate dermal fillers to augment the volume loss, so patients have softer, supple skin, and a naturally younger appearance.
Eliminates Wrinkles and Sagging Skin
Aging decreases the skin’s collagen and elasticity. As a result, the skin, muscles, and tissues of the face and neck develop lines and wrinkles and become looser, leading to sagging folds of skin, especially in the chin and neck areas. While many people rely on remedies and store-bought beauty treatments, clothing, accessories, and makeup to mask these unpleasant concerns, their effectiveness is minimal and often short-lived. A facelift is a highly desirable solution because it provides a more reliable and immediate effect on one’s features. Dr. Hershcovitch uses special techniques to remove excess facial and neck, tissues, and muscles to lift and tighten the skin. The incisions are made in the less visible areas of the hairline, ears, and jawline to minimize the development and appearance of scars.
Addresses Multiple Aging and Skin Concerns
Aging is a natural process that can’t be stopped. Everyone you turn, your skin is exposed to elements and the effects of lifestyle, stress, sun exposure, health, etc. that can make you look and feel much older than you truly are. Wrinkles and lines often develop around the eyes, mouth, and neck before anywhere else on the body. Many patients get a facelift to get rid of marionette lines, crow’s feet, laugh or smile lines, etc. to eliminate 10 or more years off their appearances. Aging impacts everyone differently. Some people have a predisposition for wrinkles, double chins, droopy, sagging facial features, and hollowed turkey necks. Men, tend to accumulate fat in their lower face around their neck and jawline in addition to wrinkles.
Is Combinable With Additional Cosmetic Procedures
There are many cosmetic treatments available to refresh one’s appearance and target specific unwanted traits to increase overall personal satisfaction and self-confidence with appearance. A facelift is a standalone option that can be used in conjunction with other popular antiaging treatments and procedures to turn back the clock and reset one’s features. It is not uncommon for patients to incorporate a brow lift, blepharoplasty, etc. into their facial rejuvenation treatment plans.
Provides Faster, Longer Lasting Results
A facelift can also be used instead of temporary, nonsurgical options, such as dermal fillers to provide patients with long-term results. Combining additional cosmetic procedures with a facelift is a convenient, cost-effective, and safe way for patients to achieve their desired look faster. It eliminates the need for additional recovery time and provides more consistent, natural-looking results.
Shorter Recovery and Better Outcome
The doctor utilizes special, advanced techniques to minimize the amount of manipulation to the patient’s skin to perform the work safely and effectively to minimize the noticeable signs of the procedure. Fewer and smaller incisions placed in the hairline and other inconspicuous areas provide patients with less scarring, bruising, a shorter recovery, and a better, more organic, desirable appearance.
