A facelift can be a life-changing procedure and is one of the most popular facial procedures today. Patients tell us that with the added confidence they feel after a facelift, they find they have the energy, outlook, and physical appearance they had many years ago. Some of our patients ask us if people ever combine other popular facial procedures with a facelift. And the answer is ‘absolutely’! While plenty of people find that the facelift procedure is expected to give them the results they’re looking for, others have further requests.
If someone had a facelift decades ago, it was basically a skin-tightening procedure. A surgeon would take sagging skin on the face, pull it tight, and reattach it. This is why the facelifts of decades ago tended to look unnatural. Today, we know it is NOT just the skin that should be given attention during a proper facelift. Fortunately, medical techniques have evolved, and with the combination of innovative equipment and education and the true excellence of Dr. Torkian’s skill, a beautiful and natural facelift is what our patients. During a facelift, we carefully tighten and adjust the facial muscles, because the muscles are responsible for the foundation of the face shape and movement. We can also adjust fat where needed, and then, of course, the last step is tightening loose skin to finish the lifted and youthful look.
