Can a facelift make you look younger?

Everyone experiences change in their body as we age. Sometimes the signs of ageing show even before we expect it. Sagging skin, fine lines or wrinkles can become more prominent on the face. There are various ways to fight skin ageing signs, including a cosmetic surgery facelift.  But, could a facelift make you look youthful again?

Artiste Plastic Surgery shares the benefits of facelift surgery in making you look younger.

How does a facelift work?

Facelift surgery is one of the most popular procedures in Australia. Usually combined with neck lift surgery, this procedure is considered among the most effective techniques in addressing the effects of ageing on the face.

During the procedure, your surgeon will perform an incision in front of the ear and along the hairline. Depending on the type of facelift, the incision can be extended behind the ear and under the chin when performed together with a neck lift. 

Benefits of facelift surgery:

1. It lifts sagging skin.

Sagging skin develops as the skin loses its elasticity with age. With facelift surgery, patients can achieve firmer skin by lifting and tightening skin, resulting in a more youthful facial appearance. 

2. It smoothens wrinkles and fine lines.

Facial movements are one of the causes of the formation of wrinkles that are more noticeable in the eyes and mouth. Facelift eliminates excess skin and tightens the remaining tissue, smoothing out wrinkles for fresher, younger-looking results. 

3. It helps get rid of jowls.

As we age, fatty jowls can develop, and cheeks can appear sunken. The facelift repositions the cheeks along the jawline, improving the facial contours and sculpting your jawline correctly for a more defined look.
