Q: What kind of results can I expect from a facelift? I am 51, slender, non-drinker, non-smoker and skin is sagging. I live a healthy lifestyle.
Why is my face dropping rapidly? My mother is 70 and her skin is tight. I use sunscreen.
A: Jowls are a combination of lifestyle and genetics. Jowls can be improved with a surgical facelift or Silhouette Instalift, which is an absorbable thread that is woven under the skin to lift the skin in an hour or two procedure.
Over a 6 month period the threads are absorbed and your body is stimulated to produce your collagen. Therefore, you receive a double benefit from the Silhouette Instalift, the lifting of moderately lax skin and a contour improvement.
If; however, the facial skin, jowl, and neck tissues are very lax then a surgical facelift will be the most beneficial.
A plastic surgeons who is well trained and has an artistic eye will offer the procedure that is optimal for a natural looking rejuvenation.
