What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical face procedure used to correct moderate to severe signs of aging such as midface sagging and deep wrinkles. The procedure aims to lift and tighten the tissue and remove any excess skin. A sucessful facelift in Huntington Beach will result in a youthful appearance without an overly tightened look.
What is LiteLift®?
In the Huntington Beach area, patients can also benefit from the LiteLift®, a facelift technique that offers different benefits. The technique uses limited incisions that are easily hidden behind the ear and within the hairline. Because it is less invasive, patients in Huntington Beach can find effective results with less downtime and quicker healing.
Who is a Candidate for Facelift or LiteLift®?
Those in the Huntington Beach area can benefit from a facelift or LiteLift® procedure when they experience moderate to severe signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and facial sagging. Patients should be in good health to be candidates with no medical conditions that could affect healing. Having realistic expectations and maintaining a positive outlook throughout the procedure process can also help ensure satisfying results.
The Procedure Process
The facelift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. If patients are having the LiteLift® technique, they might only need local anesthesia or sedation for their comfort. There are many different incision patterns that can be used during the procedure, depending on the extent of facial aging and the technique being used. After the appropriate incisions are made, the tissue is lifted and excess skin is removed. Patients in Huntington Beach might also choose to add another procedure like a browlift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery.
Recovery and Results
For both the facelift and LiteLift® techniques, there will be some recovery time where patients should rest at home. However, those who have the LiteLift® procedure usually experience a much shorter recovery time. After the facelift or LiteLift® procedure in Huntington Beach, patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance with reduced wrinkles and sagging. Although the procedure can give a significantly younger appearance, it cannot prevent the aging process. Your face will continue to age naturally with the rest of your body.
