What is Facial Rejuvenation?
Technologies and techniques for facial rejuvenation have evolved over the years, and now more natural-looking outcomes can be achieved with less invasive approaches. Each individual’s facial features and profile are unique, requiring a customized approach to facial rejuvenation for optimal results. Facial rejuvenation may include various procedures such as facelift and neck lift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, otoplasty or ear surgery, chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, and partial or mini facelift.
Need for Facial Rejuvenation
The face is the most prominent part of the body from a cosmetic perspective. If the face appears tired, dull, or shows signs of aging, a person starts looking older even if the rest of the body may be more athletic and younger looking. The face may start losing its firmness, smoothness, and natural glow due to various factors such as sun damage, gravitation forces, family factors, environmental exposure, stress, injury, and repetitive facial expression.
Facial rejuvenation may become necessary if a person is dissatisfied with the facial appearance, and desires to achieve a more youthful-looking face. Smooth and resilient, young-looking skin occurs due to the natural presence of collagen and elastin proteins in the skin. The collagen and elastin levels may become depleted due to aging and other factors, causing the skin to lose its firmness. This leads to sagging skin, folds, wrinkles, and lines on the face, which can make a person look much older. Facial rejuvenation procedures can reverse these conditions effectively.
Facial rejuvenation includes several minor and major procedures, which may be used independently or in combination to meet the unique needs of a patient.
Facelift and Necklift
Facelifts and neck lifts are typically performed together in order to achieve a more consistent-looking facial appearance. These are extensive procedures, primarily involving the midface, the lower face, and the neck. Midface lift can help restore youthfulness to the area beneath the eye up to the nasolabial fold, and reduce smile lines. Facelifts can produce a more defined jawline, reduce sagging skin from the face, minimize wrinkles, and make the overall face smoother and younger-looking. Necklift involves tightening of loose neck muscles and removal of excess fat and skin.
A partial or mini facelift is more suited for people in the age group of 40 to 65, who need to reduce signs of aging without going for extensive surgery. A mini facelift involves less invasive techniques, less downtime, and improved contour along the jawline and underneath the chin.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure on the upper face that involves the removal of excess fat and skin from the lower and upper eyelids. It can be used as a corrective procedure for patients having drooping upper eyelids and dark bags beneath the lower eyelids.
A forehead lift or brow lift is designed to make the upper face look more rested and refreshed. It can raise drooping brows by removing excess skin and fat, and reduce the lines and furrows that make a person appear tired, angry, or sad.
People with a depressed chin can restore better harmony and balance to the face with a chin augmentation procedure. It involves the placement of a synthetic implant through a minor incision under the chin or through the mouth. The tissue grows into the implant and integrates with it naturally.
Rhinoplasty and Otoplasty
These are corrective or cosmetic surgeries of the nose and ears respectively. These procedures are designed to improve the size, shape, and appearance of the nose and ears to achieve more harmonious facial balance and well-defined looks.
