Hundreds of years ago, writer Baltasar Gracian extolled the value of beauty by writing that a beautiful woman should “break her mirror” while she is still young (and beautiful, one could surmise). This is an antiquated idea. Today, men and women of all ages are more in tune with their desire to maintain their appearance. The problem is, the path to a youthful face isn’t so cut-and-dry anymore.
At one time, the primary process of restoring a youthful facial aesthetic was to manually tighten the skin over the skeletal structure of the chin, jawline, and cheekbones. Today, non-surgical treatments have higher numbers of procedures on a yearly basis. The truth is, there is value in both surgical and non-surgical methods of facial rejuvenation. Success isn’t a matter of timing so much as it is about technique. From this perspective, you can see why facelift surgery can be an excellent option for younger patients.
A Time to Reboot
We are coming up on the time of year when we start to reflect on our choices; what we have done to get where we are, and where we would like to go in the future. This time of general “reboot” is excellent for doing away with ideas and behaviors that no longer serve us. If you have held the belief that facelift surgery is for the older crowd, the crowd that you are not yet a part of, maybe now is a great time to rethink this.
Facelift surgery isn’t for everyone. However, the refined techniques employed by conscientious cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Lorenc have paved the way for earlier, milder forms of rejuvenation. Our SelfieLift™ is a prime example. This particular approach to facial rejuvenation does not include surgery, or a minor procedure, if that. The SelfieLift™ often incorporates the effectiveness of multiple injectables, ranging from BOTOX to Juvederm. It may also involve the Silhouette Instalift, today’s safe and successful thread lift technique. A SelfieLift™ is customized to your unique needs and may require just a few hours of downtime, making it ideal for pre-holiday treatment.
For more dramatic results, but results that nonetheless look very natural, facelift surgery is a very real contender. Men and women as young as 40 are beginning to experience for themselves just how powerful a minor mid-, upper-, or full facelift can be. Due to the inclusion of facial filling with soft tissue fillers or fat injections, today’s facelifts are nothing like we’ve seen before, and that makes them quite special.
