A facelift is one of the most powerful rejuvenation procedures for good reason: it can reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and make you look decades younger. While it does wonders for areas spanning the middle of the face and lower, there are signs of aging the facelift might not be able to address. Thankfully, a facelift allows for multiple options and opportunities for customization. Let’s take a look at some of the most common signs of aging and how you can target them for a comprehensive rejuvenation treatment.

A Turkey Neck

The skin on our neck is especially delicate, and once we start aging our neck is more susceptible to folding and wrinkling that comes with aging. Some people then develop what’s called a turkey neck, which is sagging skin that makes the neck resemble a turkey wattle. Although a facelift can expertly address jowls and fatty skin on the neck, a separate neck lift procedure might be necessary to target more severe sagging on the neck.

Puffy, Drooping Eyelids

Sagging skin can also develop on our delicate eyelids, leading to drooping eyelids that make us look tired and old. A facelift is perfect for targeting signs of aging from the middle of the face and below, but to address aging in the upper half of a face, it might be good to pair it with an eyelid lift.

Sagging Eyebrows and Deep Frown Lines

When our foreheads start to sag and wrinkle, we develop a plethora of signs of aging: deep creases on the forehead, drooping brows, and deep frown lines between the eyebrows. A brow lift can fix that by lifting and tightening the forehead and eliminating frown lines. By pairing your facelift with a brow lift, you can have comprehensive rejuvenation from the top of the face to the neck.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

A facelift will reduce the deep lines and wrinkles on the face, but it might not be able address finer, surface-level signs of aging like expression lines. You can refine the results of your facelift by targeting any leftover fine lines and wrinkles with dermal fillers and injectables. Despite their nonsurgical procedure, the full range of injectables available can last for as long as a few months to a year.
Although it can’t address every sign of aging, a facelift can still be paired with the perfect procedure to provide comprehensive rejuvenation. To find the perfect facelift option for you, contact the talented surgeons of Burt & Will for a consultation.
