The facelift, neck lift, and eyelid lift are three procedures many of our mature patients know very well. That being said, Drs. Annie and Brian Buinewicz also feel that our patients don’t quite know how each of these procedures can work individually and together to address unwanted signs of aging for years to come. Let’s go over which concerns can be addressed with each facial rejuvenation procedure, so you can get a better feel for how to address your problem areas.
1. Droopy Eyelids? Consider Blepharoplasty.
Patients come in every day telling us they’re upset with their droopy eyelids. Drooping or tired upper eyelids can keep our patients looking bored, exhausted, and disinterested when their face is in a resting position. To address droopy upper eyes, we always suggest blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a surgical cosmetic procedure in which excess skin is removed from the eyelids to produce a more youthful, awake appearance. Benefits of blepharoplasty include:
- Minimal scarring is hidden in the natural folds of the eyes.
- A minimal recovery period of about five to seven days.
2. Banding Around Your Neck? Consider a Neck Lift.
The neck is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. This is because the skin covering the neck is thin, sensitive, and constantly moving with our facial expressions. If you’re concerned with your neck looking saggier, showing signs of banding, or generally looking older, we recommend considering a neck lift. This surgical cosmetic procedure reduces excess skin around the neck contributing to a sagging appearance and pulls the skin tight for a smooth, naturally youthful look. Benefits of a neck lift also include:
- Contours the neck and jawline.
- Can also be used to minimize the appearance of a double chin or “turkey waddle.”
3. Sagging Skin Giving You Jowls? Consider a Facelift.
The facelift is arguably one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures known across the country. That being said, many of our patients have reservations about considering a facelift. Over the past few decades, board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Brian Buinewicz have perfected giving patients a naturally youthful appearance with the help of a facelift. Unlike the “wind-blown” look our patients fear when considering the procedure, our modern-day facelifts gently restore the features of the mid-face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits of a facelift include:
- Results last for up to 15 years following surgery.
- A single facelift can rejuvenate the eyes, cheeks, mouth, jawline, and lips.
