You don’t have to be a Hollywood actress to recognize the stunning beauty and grace that younger looking skin can give. Unfortunately, the busy lifestyle of today, coupled with the air pollution in many big cities could really take a huge toll on your skin’s health and lead to visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and age spots. Thus, it’s no wonder so many women opt to get facelift surgery to look young again.

What it is

Essentially, facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess facial skin, and redraping it on the patient’s face and neck. This is only the general idea of the treatment though, as there are many surgical procedures that might cause some of its elements to vary. Facelifts are often combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures like eyelid surgery for better results.

What it does

A facelift procedure mainly removes visible signs of aging, which can include deep creases below the eyelids, sagging in the midface, loss of muscle tone, fallen or misplaced fat in the face, or loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw. Know though, that while this procedure can make you look younger, it is in no way meant to change your fundamental appearance, nor is it aimed at halting the aging process.

In both real life and popular culture, the demand for facelift in Beverly Hills has increased and has become part of the city’s beauty and celebrity culture. In turn, reputable cosmetic surgery practitioners have since been held in high regard. However, with the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, doctors are seeing grim possibilities for their business earnings–prompting some of them to contemplate retiring early.

When the law was first passed in 2010, Democrats wanted to slap a 10% tax on cosmetic surgery procedures and materials related to esthetic surgery. However, the public and the doctors were basically kept in the dark as to which processes or materials would fall under that 10% tax.

Aging leads to a variety of changes in the face. Volume loss takes its toll on the facial tissues, affecting muscle tone and skin elasticity. Fine lines become prominent on the forehead, around the eyes and the mouth. Facial skin, especially on the cheeks and chin, sags as fat loss occurs on those areas. Cartilage on the nose may also deteriorate due to natural degeneration.

While the aging process cannot be stopped, minimally invasive procedures, such as a “liquid facelift” through injections, can be done to combat these facial aging effects. Scientifically approved fillers are injected into target spots to fill creases and sags for a fuller, rejuvenated appearance.
