facelift patientThe decision to undergo plastic surgery takes significant time and research. After all, it can be intimidating to undergo a procedure that changes the way you look. When it comes to looking and feeling younger, several plastic surgery procedures are available that can help you meet your aesthetic goals, but it’s essential that you choose a technique that addresses your unique characteristics.

Take facelift surgery, for example – it’s an excellent way to rejuvenate your face and look younger. But you’ve likely encountered surgeries that have gone awry. Frozen facial features, or eyebrows stuck in an expression of permanent surprise are just some of effects that can result from operations that aren’t uniquely tailored to the patient.

Dr. Lickstein only performs facelift procedures that complement a patient’s natural aesthetic, because a one-size-fits-all methodology is not what produces naturally beautiful results. If you’re worried about whether a facelift will change your facial expressions or your overall appearance, taking the necessary steps to make your facelift look as natural as possible will simplify the process.

What Does a Facelift Treat?

Facelifts are performed to decrease visible signs of aging that are making you feel self-conscious about the way you look. Due to the natural aging process, skin can lose its elasticity and droop from the middle of the face or around the eyelids, as well as lose volume in the cheeks.

In some patients, aging creates jowls or a double chin, along with lines around the nose that extend to the mouth. Changes like these happen slowly, but when you finally notice that you’re starting to look older, it may be a bittersweet feeling.

You might welcome the natural effects of aging and view its presence as a way of life, or you could be disappointed that you no longer possess the same qualities you had when you were younger. If you have a desire to look youthful and feel confident, then addressing your concerns with a facelift may be what you need.

Is a Facelift Right for You?

You should carefully study your options when choosing the right technique for facial rejuvenation. With recent innovations, you have various treatment options to consider that may or may not meet your expectations.

Typically, you’ll have to choose whether you want to undergo surgery or opt for a nonsurgical procedure. Nonsurgical treatments like non-ablative laser therapy or injectables are highly-effective when you desire subtle changes to your skin and facial contour. Slight changes in appearance are useful for patients who are not interested in surgery or who do not have enough skin laxity and volume loss to warrant a facelift.

Facelift surgery, on the other hand, will produce significant changes in the structure of the face and consistency of the skin. Older patients exhibiting signs of natural aging to a heightened degree may benefit from the dramatic results that a facelift can provide.

The only sure way to determine which procedure will address your cosmetic concerns is by scheduling a consultation with your physician. When you meet one-on-one with Dr. Lickstein, for example, you’re able to discuss the particular concerns affecting your face and how you imagine your results appearing when the surgery is complete.

Dr. Lickstein can examine your skin texture and may even take measurements or photographs of your face. He’ll also ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery by performing a physical and reviewing your medical history.

During your consultation, your physician will go over your options with facelift surgery and make recommendations about specific techniques that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Once you find a procedure that you think will benefit your lifestyle, your physician will begin working on a treatment plan that addresses the particular characteristics in your face.

Making a Facelift Look Natural

As your physician designs your treatment plan, they should keep in mind the natural contours of your face and outline improvements that only enhance your present features. Dr. Lickstein especially values facelift results that keep your fundamental look, and steers clear of any technique that would make it appear as if you’ve had work done.

During every consultation, Dr. Lickstein asks himself how he can create a natural, non-surgical appearance for every patient in a way that will help you feel noticeably younger without significant downtime. To achieve his personal goal of creating natural-looking results, Dr. Lickstein may have you make various facial expressions so that he can understand how you react and express yourself on a regular basis.

Based on your unique characteristics, Dr. Lickstein can design a custom treatment plan and perform facelift surgery that builds upon your natural beauty. You will still look like you; the only difference is that you will appear refreshed and youthful.

Any plastic surgery procedure should be constructed to suit your needs individually, and for a facelift procedure, you should receive results that blend in with the distinctive features you already possess. At Lickstein Plastic Surgery, we want to enhance your natural beauty, as opposed to creating an aesthetic that looks unfamiliar.
