A cosmetic surgery facelift is one of the most effective procedures to address signs of ageing. However, if not performed correctly by a qualified plastic surgeon, they may lead to an overdone and unnatural appearance.
In this article, Artiste Plastic Surgery shares five signs of good facelift results performed by a board-certified specialist plastic surgeon:
5 Signs of Good Facelift Results
1. There are no visible scars
Noticeable scars are the most common indication that you had a cosmetic procedure. If you don’t want others to immediately know you’ve had surgery, incision scars must be hidden.
In performing a facelift surgery, Artiste Plastic Surgery’s Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Jack Zoumaras, carefully place incisions along the shadows of the ear and behind the tragus to ensure that the incision will not be visible. This technique allows minimal scarring that you can never tell where it is.
2. There is no windblown or pulled look
While the goal of a facelift is to lift and tone sagging skin, too much tightness can be a bad thing. A good facelift has a natural-looking appearance rather than looking pulled or windblown.
Dr Jack Zoumaras employs unique facelift techniques to ensure patients achieve natural results. He redrapes the skin in a natural vertical direction, avoiding a windswept or pulled look.
3. Your smile looks natural
A facelift smooths and improves wrinkles, which typically form in the eyes and mouth area, by trimming away excess skin and tightening the remaining tissue. In the process of eliminating wrinkles, a good facelift maintains your mouth area, wherein you can keep a natural-looking smile.
With his deep understanding of facial anatomy and surgical finesse, Dr Jack Zoumaras ensures that there will be no permanently ‘surprised looks’ or unnatural contours when you smile.
4. Your ear looks normal with no deformity
A common facelift risk is having a distorted ear lobe resulting from pulling the skin down the ear lobes, distorting their shape. A good facelift does not result in any unnatural change to the shape of the ear.
Dr Jack Zoumaras ensures that the ear lobe and tragus are not altered by not putting too much tension on the skin. He carefully performed the surgery in layers 2 to 5 of the skin and redraped the skin as a covering, ensuring that there was no pixie ear deformity.
5. You look more youthful and less tired
A good facelift results in a younger, refreshed appearance and natural-looking results. When executed properly, it can take about 10 years off your appearance, restoring a more youthful, less tired look.
By lifting the facial skin, removing excess wrinkles, and repositioning the deep layers of the face to a youthful position, Dr Jack Zoumaras’ facelift technique ensures our patients the best possible natural results and achieve their overall goals.
