Every face is different, and every face ages differently. These two facts make the facelift procedure one of the most individualized surgeries you can choose. Your facial plastic surgeon will need to account for your unique facial features and plastic surgery goals when planning your facelift.
When a patient comes to Dr. Roberta Gartside’s practice for a facelift consultation, the first thing she does is decide what type of procedure would best suit their needs. Facelift surgery is designed to correct:
- Sagging cheeks
- Creases around the mouth
- Loose skin in the neck area
- Soft jawline
- Sagging or wrinkled skin around the forehead
However, not every patient is going to have all of these issues. Dr. Gartside finds that it’s best to only undergo facelift surgery for the problems you actually want to fix. If you have a wrinkled forehead, you might find that a brow lift suits your needs just fine, while patients looking to get rid of prominent jowls may find that a mini face lift is all they need.
Whatever solution is best for you, it’s always a good idea to find a doctor who is willing to customize your procedure to that solution, and who has the skill to produce consistently good results across a variety of faces. Dr. Gartside has the experience and the record to show that she is an excellent choice to perform your custom facelift.
