Navigating the realm of facial rejuvenation can be a contemplative journey, especially for those considering a transformation at Synergy Plastic Surgery in Austin TX and the surrounding area. The choice between a facelift and a forehead lift, or perhaps a combination of both, is a common inquiry. While the answer varies for each individual, understanding the distinctions between these procedures is crucial. In this blog post, we’ll explore the nuances and offer insights into determining which approach might be the ideal fit for you.
A facelift is a renowned facial plastic surgery procedure that focuses on rejuvenating the lower two-thirds of the face. By lifting and repositioning deep facial tissues, this procedure addresses concerns such as jowls, deep lines, loss of jawline definition, lower face laxity, flat cheeks, and excess fat in the lower face and neck. In 2020 alone, over 234,374 facelifts were performed in the U.S. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
Is a Facelift Right for You?
Consider a facelift if you aim to correct:
- Deep lines or folds
- Loss of jawline definition
- Lower face laxity
- Flat cheeks
- Excess fat in the lower face and neck
Facelift candidates often notice a transformation from a sagging facial skin square shape to the once-enjoyed oval shape. To witness real-life results, explore our facelift before-and-after photo gallery.
Forehead Lift Defined
In contrast, a forehead lift, or brow lift, targets the upper portion of the face. This procedure involves hidden incisions behind the hairline, facilitating the removal of excess skin and the subtle elevation of the forehead to a naturally more youthful position.
Is a Forehead Lift Right for You?
Consider a forehead lift if you aim to:
- Smooth away deep forehead lines
- Lift heavy or drooping brows
Forehead lifts are often combined with eyelid surgery to enhance the overall appearance of the eye area. To explore results, see our browlift before-and-after photo gallery.
Exploring the Combined Approach: Facelift & Forehead Lift
For those seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation, a combined facelift and forehead lift present an excellent option. This simultaneous procedure not only streamlines costs by consolidating surgery and anesthesia fees but also facilitates a unified recovery. Choosing this approach at Synergy Plastic Surgery allows you to achieve a naturally smoother, tauter, and lifted look across your entire face.
