Improving a specific area of the face is typically done because of a specific facial problem. All procedures are tailored to fit the individual patient’s needs and desires. For many, a single procedure designed for a target area of correction will provide the youthful facial enhancement they desire. However, patients with more extensive aging will more likely have multiple trouble areas. Instead of undergoing multiple procedures separately, you may benefit from combining facial treatments into a single sitting.
Benefits of Combining Procedures
There is often a three to six week recovery period after most facial procedures. Patients who choose to undergo multiple procedures at different times will require multiple recovery periods. When you combine procedures, you only need to undergo this recovery period once, meaning you can take less time off work and less time away from activities. Due to the use of the laser in most of his procedures, the recovery time is reduced.
While there are some costs associated with combining your procedures, you can avoid the extensive costs of repeat anesthesia and facility fees. When combining procedures, you will only need to pay for the facility and anesthesia once rather than multiple fees each time you go for a new surgery.
If you have extensive facial aging, undergoing a single procedure at a time may affect how you feel about the quality of your results. Your facelift might not look as good as you wanted because you still have heavy, hooded eyes. Rejuvenating your whole facial appearance in one sitting can help you feel more satisfied with your results.
Possibly Combined Facial Procedures
Facelift surgery is designed to correct excess sagging skin of the mid to lower face. Multiple facelift techniques are available depending on where drooping skin occurs and how extensive it is. Facelifts benefit patients who require firmer muscles and the removal of excess skin. However, it doesn’t provide any improvement to the upper face, brows, or eyelids.
Eyelid lift surgery is designed to correct heavy, drooping upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids that may be contributing to a constantly fatigued or angry expression. Drooping eyelids are frequently caused by the weakening of the tissue that comprises the eyelids. Eyelid lift surgery (upper, lower, or both) removes excess eyelid tissue or fat pads under the eyes that can cause puffiness.
A neck lift can help create better definition between the neck and jawline as well as help restore a slimmer appearance. Many people fail to realize how significantly an undefined jawline and neck can age your appearance. The neck lift tightens the platysma muscle and removes excess skin to produce a slimmer, more toned appearance. Liposuction may also be used to provide better definition along the jawline and neck.
