How can a facelift after weight loss help?

Many patients are surprised to find out their faces look older and gaunter after losing a significant amount of fat. As stated above, there are also some early aging signs like wrinkles, loose jowls, hollowed eyes, sunken eyes, and many deep lines/ceases on the face.

After undergoing a massive weight loss, these issues will happen at an earlier and faster rate, and also escalate to a more serious degree. That’s when a facelift (with or without a neck lift) comes to the rescue.

The facelift has been known as one of the golden standard procedures to fix issues regarding aging signs whether it’s to contour the face, bring back the original youthfulness, or address the sagging state, and help customer match their look with their new healthy body.

To know exactly what procedure you need to apply for, during the consultation, doctors will discuss which parts you are concerned about the most and then give recommendations about whether you need a facelift only or other procedures too if indicated.

Experts can help you understand your specific options and which way is best to achieve your goals. Each patient is different, and the plastic surgeon will have to individualize your treatment plan to best match your desired goals.

Due to a large amount of excess facial skin, a full facelift will be needed. Facelift incisions will start from along the hairline, curving down behind the tragus, moving around the earlobes, and then back behind the ear into the hairline. These incisions allow doctors to maximize the “lifting” effect and also keep the tragus and earlobes away from any potential damage. The remaining incisions will be largely camouflaged by the hair. These incisions help mask any traces of the procedure and outsiders won’t notice it without taking a closer look. There may be an extra incision under the chin to repair the neck muscles in front of the neck.
