When signs of aging start appearing, it can be a long tiring process to choose the right makeup routines to hide them all. The more long-term solution to these is a cosmetic procedure to erase the lines. There are several ways to correct age lines, but for those that are suffering from multiple facial folds and wrinkles, the best option would be a facelift.

There are different types of facelifts that can be chosen based on the aging issues to be addressed. The traditional facelift still continues to be the best solution for those with deeper age lines in several parts of the face.

Benefits of the Traditional Facelift

  • Regardless of whether the lines appear due to hereditary reasons, external environmental factors, aging, or stress, the traditional facelift can be used to correct them. In each of these cases, great results can be expected.
  • After facelift surgery, the face looks several years younger. The corrected area does not develop wrinkles and fine lines as easily as it did before the procedure; the face ages more gracefully at a slower pace after the traditional facelift.
  • If there is sagging skin in some portions of the face, this can be corrected with a traditional facelift, preventing the face from looking dull and lifeless. It also helps achieve a perfectly contoured look. With the jawline better defined and the facial skin tightened, the face has a naturally younger and rejuvenated appearance.

The Procedure

The traditional facelift procedure takes slightly longer than the other types of facelifts. General anesthesia is administered before the procedure.

The surgeon then creates the incisions. The positions of the incisions vary depending on the affected areas. The common places chosen are the temples, behind the ears, and under the ears. The incisions are made along the natural curves so that any post-surgical marks are nearly invisible after the surgery.

The conventional facelift is a full facelift and so the lines below the eyes, at the corners of the mouth, and at the chin can all be corrected. The excess fat and loose skin can also be corrected with the traditional facelift.

Your surgeon will be able to provide the pre-surgery and post-surgery instructions to be followed.

Who Can Get a Traditional Facelift?

The degree of correction possible from the full facelift procedure is suitable mainly for those over 50 years of age who might be suffering from deeper lines. The patient should be in good health overall before the procedure, as this will make for a more efficient recovery after the surgery. Those with strong facial bone structure will obtain the best results. People who have undergone other facial cosmetic procedures can also opt for a facelift.
