Embracing Youthful Skin
Aging gracefully does not mean you have to accept the loose, sagging skin for what it is. Dr. Fortes, a highly skilled and compassionate plastic surgeon, offers a variety of procedures at his practice in Houston, Texas, including the facelift.
The purpose of a facelift is to give a more youthful appearance by addressing concerns like wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial muscle tone.
A facelift cannot completely change one's appearance or stop the aging process, but it can provide personalized cosmetic, restorative surgery to enhance facial harmony and achieve specific aesthetic goals. Apart from cosmetic benefits, a facelift may also have functional advantages. It can help improve breathing by lifting the cheek, positively impacting the patient’s nasal airflow. A facelift solves various problems related to facial aging, including sagging skin, deep creases, jowls, and loss of muscle tone. It can also address concerns such as facial asymmetry and the overall appearance of aging. By providing a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation, a facelift can help individuals achieve a more balanced and rejuvenated facial appearance, enhancing function and form.
Improved Quality of Life
One of the primary benefits of a facelift is the tightening of sagging skin in the jowl and neck area, which helps to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. This restorative surgery addresses multiple signs of aging, including sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and jowls, providing a comprehensive solution in a single procedure. Additionally, a facelift can re-contour the jawline and neck, resulting in a firmer and more defined appearance. The procedure also helps eliminate a double chin and improve facial contours, contributing to a more youthful and attractive look. Modern facelift techniques aim to make the surgery less invasive, leading to a quicker recovery and allowing individuals to return to their regular daily lives sooner.
By providing a more defined and smoother facial appearance, a facelift can enhance self-image and restore a more youthful look, ultimately boosting confidence. The procedure's long-lasting and comprehensive results contribute to increased confidence and a positive self-image, addressing the visible effects of aging and helping individuals feel more comfortable and satisfied with their appearance. Dr. Fortes is known for his personalized approach to patient care, taking the time to understand each individual's needs and desires to create a customized treatment plan. He is dedicated to helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals and feel their best, prioritizing their well-being and satisfaction.
Tightening Sagging Skin
Dr. Fortes will need to evaluate your skin and facial structure to determine if you are a candidate for a facelift, as well as for other procedures, such as endoscopic brow lift, eyelid surgery, fat grafts, laser resurfacing, and rhinoplasty, which may be recommended in conjunction with a facelift. Dr. Fortes will answer all your questions and address any concerns you may have before you undergo facelift surgery.
He has been recognized as one of the top surgeons in Houston and across the U.S., known for his exceptional work in facial rejuvenation, body contouring, and breast augmentation. Fluent in both English and Spanish, Dr. Fortes is committed to providing his patients with the latest and proven facial and body procedure techniques, ensuring they receive attentive, personalized care and a satisfying experience from start to finish.
Reversing Early Signs of Aging
Most facelift patients usually experience some discomfort after surgery, but none that should be severe. You will want to minimize your movements in the first few days following surgery, and you may also be advised to keep your head elevated for a few days after surgery to help keep the amount of swelling down. Drainage tubes may be placed beneath the neck or behind the ears to minimize swelling during your initial recovery period.
A facelift's results can last up to 15 years, especially for younger patients with healthier skin.
Various facelift techniques include deep plane facelifts, full brow lifts, and mini facelifts tailored to address specific cosmetic concerns.
Before a facelift, it's recommended to avoid prolonged sun exposure, wash the face with mild soap and water, and follow the surgeon's preoperative instructions.
Final results are typically better visualized at 12 weeks after surgery, with noticeable improvements within the first few weeks.
