Over time, collagen production slows down or stops completely with age, which can cause your naturally even and smooth skin to its elasticity. You will notice fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots take over your skin.
Fortunately, several surgical and non-surgical procedures can reverse the effects of ageing, restoring your youthful appearance. At Belvedere Clinic, highly experienced specialists can help you figure out the best course of action based on your current condition.
Common strategies adopted during facelift surgeries
- Mini facelift
The mini facelift is a surgical intervention which utilises small, almost invisible incisions under the hairline to remove excess tissue and tighten the skin. It is an extremely intricate procedure that works best against jowls that appear in the lower half of the cheeks due to reduced collagen and elastin in your skin.
- Mid facelift
As the name suggests, mid-facelift procedures target the middle part of your face, specifically the cheeks. However, instead of using implants, the surgeon will remove excess tissue from below the skin or use the existing tissue to tighten the skin. This procedure works best against the visible signs of ageing like expression lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. It is recommended to patients who do not have visible jowls or marionette lines.
- Deep plane facelift
Another extremely intricate technique, deep plane facelift involves lifting and strengthening the lax muscles at the base of the neck and chin. Essentially, your surgeon will reshape and reposition the musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), which is used for smiling and frowning. After recovery, you will notice radiant and smoother skin free of wrinkles.
- Jawline rejuvenation
While most people show the first signs of ageing near the jawline and neckline, this effect is very pronounced in women. As the name implies, jawline rejuvenation essentially involves liposuction – removing excess fat – from the neck area. This procedure allows your surgeon to reshape and contour your jawline.
- Liquid facelift
Liquid facelift is a collective name for a variety of non-surgical interventions used to reverse the effects of ageing in people. People prefer these techniques as it is quicker and more affordable, and often does not require taking time off for recovery. Several techniques include using Botox (cosmetic form of botulin toxin), dermal or soft tissue fillers, and chemical peels (in-office or at home).
While non-surgical procedures do not require the patent to go under the knife, they will still need to visit a trusted cosmetic surgery clinic. A dermatologist can suggest the perfect blends of injections and products, which can accelerate your recovery and leave you with fresher skin.
No cosmetic procedure, surgical or non-surgical, should be performed without expert guidance. Improperly administered techniques can lead to adverse effects like drooping skin, leaving your face in a worse condition than before. For affordable cosmetic procedures under highly qualified surgeons, get in touch with reputed clinics offering such services. Experienced professionals can guide you in the right direction and help you become the best version of yourself, appearance-wise.
