“After a lot of thinking and wanting to have this procedure done, I did it. And the results have been magnificent.” – Dr. Thompson Facelift Patient.
“Dr. Henstrom is an amazing surgeon and person. I am so pleased with the facelift, brow lift, and lower blepharoplasty that he performed on me recently. His work is simply amazing and he truly cares about his patients.” – Dr. Henstrom Facelift Patient
As some individuals approach their fifties and sixties they start to feel like they’re looking more and more like mothers or fathers. They begin to notice more facial laxity, sagging skin on the neck and jowls and just feel that their outside appearance does not accurately reflect their more youthful inner self.
When to Consider a Facelift?
Once you start to notice a significant amount of jowl and neck laxity, it may be time to consider a facelift. A facelift is a comprehensive, long-term solution with a natural outcome. When an individual is considering a facelift, it is important that they are healthy, non-smokers. Being in good health significantly lowers a few of the risks that come with any surgical procedure.
What will my facelift results look like?
Once patients have recovered and healed after having a facelift they are extremely happy with their results. They are left with a natural, more youthful appearance.
A facelift can take anywhere from 10-15 years of a person’s appearance as long as the SMAS layer is addressed. Addressing the SMAS layer during a facelift is crucial for natural, long lasting results. During our UFP facelift procedure, the SMAS layer and deep muscle is properly lifted and secured. No matter why, once a facelift is complete the aging process will continue. But, the patient will always appear younger than their true age.
During the consultation process many ask if they will still look like themselves after having facelift surgery and they answer is “yes”. At UFP, we take pride in helping our patients look like the best versions of their younger selves.
What will my scars look like?
During a facelift surgery, incisions are made which means their will be scars. Both Dr. Thompson and Dr. Henstrom are extremely successful in hiding the scars in the hairline and behind the ears. While you are healing, the incisions are pink. As you are healing, the coloration of the scars start to turn white and become less noticeable. Once the scars turn white they are easily camouflaged and nearly invisible to the eye.
