What is a face lift?
There is no such thing as ‘a’ face lift – the term really covers a whole range of different surgical techniques that can be used to rejuvenate and enhance facial appearance, which includes tightening, repositioning and adding volume. The effect of time and lifestyle are unique to everyone, and so the requirements for a ‘face lift’ are similarly personalised. However, what is generally true for almost everyone is that as we age, we lose volume from our face, elasticity from our skin and gravity acts to accentuate these issues. For example, some people who have lost a significant amount of weight in later life, through lifestyle changes or surgery, have mainly excessive skin that needs removing. Similarly, some people find that a loose ‘chook neck’ runs in their family, whereas they
are blessed with beautiful full cheeks that really could not be improved by surgery. Surgery can be used to address individual issues, but generally the best result is achieved by optimising skin texture and reducing sun damage with non surgical means. At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, they have developed a range of unique, physician only skin care to protect, revive and improve the appearance of skin. When combined with photodynamic therapy, a light treatment that selectively removes sun damage, it can be an effective first step whilst considering a surgical option. Mr Brown and his team of nurse educators and dermal therapists will advise you about which nonsurgical and surgical options might be beneficial to assist in achieving your personal, facial rejuvenation goals.
