Why choose a Facelift?
When we look in the mirror we expect to see a reflection of how we feel. When perception aligns with our sense of self, we experience joy. When perception is not aligned, we can lose connection with ourselves and feel like we are disappearing in the world. Facelift surgery can help realign these perceptions, buoy the spirit and deepen our connection to joy.
What is a Facelift?
Facelift surgery also known as a Rhytidectomy, helps improve the appearance of aging changes that result from a “loss of structure”. When the supporting structures of the face give way, sagging skin at the cheeks and jawline become obvious leading to the appearance of jowls, excessive skin in the neck and a heavier, square looking face. Facelift surgery repositions the tissues up into the mid-face, creating a more youthful and lighter look.
There are many different techniques used to achieve a facelift, but not all results are the same. Many facelift techniques are performed as a “skin only” dissection that relies on the skin for the lifting improvement but will result in a temporary and incomplete correction with the skin stretching as it relaxes overtime. A “deep plane facelift” is a technique utilized by Dr. Bensimon and other skilled surgeons that focus on the deeper structures of the face for the most natural and longest lasting correction.
Results from a Facelift should be long lasting and will improve the future aging of the face. All faces should not look the same. The goal is not to create a new face but rather to take enhance what makes you unique. After surgery, patients may experience some bruising and swelling lasting one- two weeks. Complementary procedures such as the BensiPeel™, and Fat Injection will provide comprehensive rejuvenation and may enhance your result.
