in the world of cosmetic and plastic surgery, it can seem like there are options for a “”younger looking you,” just around every corner. If you’re like millions of women who suffer from sagging skin and are feeling the toll of age on your face, it might be time to consider getting a face lift. But did you know that there are two types of surgical face lift procedures to choose from? Traditional and Subperiosteal face lifts are the two options that you and your doctor can discuss during your initial consultation. But what is a subperiosteal face lift and how does it differ from a traditional one? Read on to learn more.
What’s the difference between Traditional and Subperiosteal Face Lifts?
Similar to a traditional face lift, a subperiosteal face lift involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision near the top of your forehead or scalp. However, unlike a traditional face lift where tissues are removed in order to give patients a more taut appearance, a subperiosteal face lift involves remolding and repositioning the soft tissues within the face.
Why Choose a Subperiosteal Face Lift
Since its initial appearance on the surgical floor in the early 1970’s the subperiosteal face lift is gaining a lot of popularity among individuals everywhere, largely due to the long lasting results that patients are obtaining. Although results from a traditional facelift are fairly good, results from a subperiosteal face lift are even better and last a lot longer.
Who Is a Suberperiosteal Face Lift Ideal for?
subperiosteal face lifts are ideal for candidates who have a good skin tone that can recover easily from being manipulated during surgery with minimal scarring.
Subperiosteal face lifts are also ideal for individuals who have excess skin or fat around their neck and jawline. This surgery can also help to lift and tighten the lower areas of the face and neck in order to give you the look that you desire.
If you’re considering getting a face lift, you might be an ideal candidate for a subperiosteal face lift. Not only will this type of face lift help you obtain longer lasting results but it will also help you to look like your younger self once again.
