The face lift is a procedure that is performed to help men and women create a more youthful appearance. The modern face lift strives for a natural looking rejuvenation–the goal is for you to still look like yourself, just the best version of you from a few years ago–a version of you that is well rested and just got back from a relaxing vacation. The face lift targets the lower portion of the face and jowls. There is a full face lift and then there is a mini facelift–depending on what specific issues each person is looking to improve. Some patients may opt to combine the face lift with a brow lift or blepharoplasty in Houston for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Ideal candidates for the face lift are in good physical and mental health with no issues that could impede the body’s recovery, non-smokers, and they should have a realistic expectation for the procedure and potential results.

What to expect from a facelift is something that you should know before getting the surgery. This is because there are things that you should prepare yourself for before and after the surgery. This will help you get the best results from the procedure.
The first thing to expect is the look of your face after the surgery has been done. You will be surprised how much your appearance can change simply by having facelifts. The effects are not permanent, but they last for a very long time. It will take quite some time for you to notice the changes in your appearance, because the skin must adjust to the surgery. After the procedure, you will notice that your skin looks smoother and younger.
Another expected outcome is that your skin will feel a lot smoother and more toned. You will be surprised at how much your appearance will improve just by getting a facelift. This is because the procedure is what causes the most of your sagging skin. Your surgeon will basically use sewing equipment to pull your skin tauter. This will then make the area around the eyes smaller. The facelift will also make the inner corner of the eye appears to be better toned.
You will also be able to expect your skin to stay healthier after the procedure has been done. This is because collagen will be used to help restore the youthful appearance of the skin. In fact, it will even help keep it from falling off so easily. You will notice that the area around your eyes will be smoother after the facelift has been done. This means that you are less likely to develop fine lines and wrinkles in this area of your face.
Another thing that you should expect from a facelift is that it will improve the way that your skin looks under your eyes. Your eyelids will not be as droopy or puffy after the facelift has been done. In fact, you may even end up with very defined circles underneath your eyes. This is a wonderful thing to see if you are tired of looking tired and worn out.
Overall, you should be able to see an overall improvement when it comes to the way that your face looks after a facelift. Of course, this improvement is going to vary based upon the specific type of facelift that was performed. However, you should be able to expect at least some of these things. Keep in mind that it is a good idea to talk to your doctor before you get the facelift done. This will help you understand what you can expect from a facelift in general.
