Facelift Bellevue | Face Lift Seattle Page added by Dr. Philip Young of Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:
We added a page to discuss what a facelift does and how to make sense of all the lifts that are advertised out there in the media. You can visit this page at any time: Facelift Bellevue | Face Lift Seattle. Essentially, all the lifts such as quick lift, lifestyle lift, s lift, smas lift, deep plane lift, mini lift, traditional face lift, etc are a variation of the basic facelift that we discuss on this page. The facelift entails making an incision in front and behind the ear to pull the face and neck up for facial rejuvenation. The incision in front is mainly for a facelift, while the incision that extends behind the ear is for a neck lift. Everything else in the face can benefit from fillers | fat injections or The YoungVitalizer . This is our flow chart which you can click to enlarge:
In general what this explains is that for you face you should first consider the YoungVitalizer which is less invasive. Even before this you can consider fillers with the knowledge that the fillers last 6 months to a year at most. After doing less invasive procedures you can move on to more traditional procedures if needed. If jowls are your main issue a facelift would be ideal. If the neck is your concern, a necklift would be the best option.
What the page will go into is also the idea is bringing more light back to the face. We talk about the aging process on this page and how the changing of the grape to a raisin makes the tissues draw or move inward and downward. This movement effectively causes a shadow to be cast over the face by the structures above them. For example the brows start to cover the upper eyelid. For the lower eyelids, the eyes and brows start to cover the lower eyelids and cheeks. For the nasolabial folds, it is the cheeks that start to cover the folds and make them look deeper. For the marionette lines, the lower cheek and mouth help to create more shadowing in the marionette area, etc, etc.
