Two of the most significant facial rejuvenation procedures are blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and facelift surgery. While each is performed on different areas of the face, they both can help create a more youthful appearance. If you are considering plastic surgery to refresh your face, you may be researching both these procedures. Why not combine the two for a balanced facial rejuvenation?
The facelift is the gold standard of anti-aging plastic surgery. Removing loose skin around the upper neck, jawline and jowls and elevating the lower face tissues can restore a more youthful appearance. Facelift surgery can erase several or more years from your facial appearance, especially if most of your aging features are in your lower face. However, it does not address bags under the eyes or droopy upper eyelids that make you look tired and older.
One Surgery Day for Facial Rejuvenation
If you have sagging skin on your lower face and neck, and excess skin around your eyes, consider a two in one plastic surgery day. Both a facelift and blepharoplasty can be completed on the same day for a full rejuvenation. Doing one or the other is wonderful, but if you have aging issues in both places, the results can look unbalanced. If you only have the eyelift, you will still have jowling or sagging skin around your jaw and neck. When you complete both at one time, you are addressing the two main areas that make the face look older.
Beyond the benefits of a balanced, refreshed appearance, combining multiple procedures for facial rejuvenation can be more convenient. Patients who combine blepharoplasty and facelift surgery or any other lift procedure also combine their recovery time. Typically, the recovery time is the same for facelift surgery whether you have only a facelift or add an eyelift, brow lift or other procedure at the same time.
If you want to refresh your face from your upper neck to upper eyelids, consider a two-in-one facial rejuvenation surgery day.
