Looking your best is something that sparks your interest all the time, not only on special occasions. While the day to day appearance of your face and body are crucial to your overall sense of confidence, there is something to be said for boosting youthfulness before important events. The holidays are a prime example of how special gatherings, along with their numerous photo ops, can present a challenge. We say start early! Friendly care from an experienced New Jersey plastic surgeon can lead you on a direct path to a younger version of yourself.
To decide on cosmetic treatment is one thing; to determine which approach to rejuvenation is right for you can take a bit more research and contemplation. It’s true that we live in the age of injectables. However, facial and neck procedures have held their value over the years. Here, we want to discuss the difference between facelift surgery and neck lift surgery to help you better understand how to achieve your desired result.
A facelift isn’t just a facelift anymore. Over the years, several techniques have been developed to address specific concerns related to facial aging. Some of our patients can obtain a beautiful outcome with a mini facelift or upper facelift. In other cases, symmetry is achieved best with a full facelift. During the procedure, the aim is to lift and remove excess skin to smooth out wrinkles. Dr. Ferraro also perfects proportions by addressing the distribution of fatty tissue beneath the surface. Along with the re-draping of muscle tissue, this redefines the jawline, cheeks, and temples.
It does little good to refresh the appearance of the face if the tissue across the neck is loose and wrinkled. Neck lift surgery has become a popular adjunct to the facelift because this procedure focuses on the curvature from the chin down. Neck lift surgery may remove excess fatty tissue with liposuction before lifting and removing skin that has lost its tightness.
There are ways to simulate the potential improvements achieved with either a facelift or neck lift. However, the best way to understand the power of cosmetic surgery is to consult with your trusted plastic surgeon. We would love to assist you in your objective to look younger not only during the upcoming holiday season but for several years to come.
