A facial rejuvenation surgery usually includes eyelids surgery, a neck lift and a rhytidectomy. Depending on your specific case, a brow lift, bichectomy as well as chin or jowl implants can be added. If you are looking also for a Rhinoplasty, that is a different procedure and it needs to be done in a second session. It is important to understand that a rejuvenation will make you look younger as if you were in your 30’s. Have a look at your photos and compare with the mirror test.
The Mirror Test
Use a well-lit room and stand in front of a mirror. Focus in your features and ask yourself what is bothering you. Are your eyelids kind of droopy ? What about laugh lines around your eyes ? Check if your cheeks and neck are sagging. Have a closer look to any lines on your face. And now your lips. Are they deflated or longer or do you notice any wrinkles ? If the answer is yes to any of these and something is bothering you about your actual look, then facial rejuvenation is for you.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty is a highly demanded procedure. The eyes are the windows to the soul and the most prominent feature of the face. Therefore, it is not recommended to make dramatic changes in their appearance. The goal is to look like yourself but much better and younger. Overemphasizing the concept can make your eyes look smaller and with a different shape. Your face will change forever and the days when this was acceptable are gone. Now it is all about natural looks.
Facelift surgery, also known as Rhytidectomy or usually called mini facelift. Facelifts are to correct the saggy skin on the lower part of your face. However, Facial Rejuvenation is much more. It focuses on facial harmony, A facelift will make you look better and Facial Rejuvenation will make you look younger. To maintain the facial harmony, eyelid surgery is a go. A facelift can take away 10 years, but a facial rejuvenation can take away 20. Keep in mind that the best age to undergo face procedures is at your 50’s or older to get the best results.
A Neck Lift, also known as Lower Rhytidectomy, is always needed when thinking about face surgery. You cannot address your face and left sagging skin on your neck. That will definitely ruin your appearance. This surgery improves the signs of aging of the neck and jawline. It removes and tightens loose skin. Nowadays, there is also available the neck liposuction. It has proven to be very successful and gets rid of the fat easily. The goal is to have a neck which looks softer and defined according to your new looks.
Neuromodulators such as Botox®, Xenomin® or Dysport® are agents that block muscular nerve signals. They weaken the muscle and nullify or limit the muscle contraction. This immediately diminishes wrinkles in the area. If you are considering them, share your thoughts with your cosmetic surgeon. Depending on your specific case, they may be useful and make a significant change. But in most cases, if you are looking for permanent and long lasting results, these aesthetic procedures are not recommended.
Juvéderm®, Restylane® or Voluma® work by replenishing the hyaluronic acid levels in the skin. Fat loss is more visible as we age and fillers help to reduce wrinkles. They add volume to the face and helps with hollow eyes and cheeks. They are famous for making a plumping effect. These aesthetic treatments are safe and they are not used only to address the early signs of aging. Plumping lips are highly demanded nowadays because they makes you look very sexy.
Am I a good candidate for Facial Rejuvenation ?
Keep in mind that Facial Rejuvenation is not recommended if you smoke. Smokers have high probabilities of complications and healing is very slow. This is the kind of surgery that needs you to stop smoking two months before the procedure. Then prepare yourself for a 12-night journey in order to have a perfect full recovery. If you are coming by yourself, we recommend to choose Guadalajara, MX and stay at the recovery home where you will have the best nurse, chef and head concierge ever !
