When it comes to gaining the most from a surgical facelift –it’s best to face a few home truths before undergoing the procedure. Why? Because there’s value beyond just the ‘lift’, and it begins with a strong knowledge platform and a trusted hand. Not every cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon will excel in all procedures, so ensuring you choose one who specialises in facelifts and is up-to-date with the latest practises, knowledge and expertise, is essential. Our very own Adam Bialostocki is RACs – Royal Australasian College of Surgeons – qualified and his main emphasis is facial rejuvenation(facelifts, mid-face lifts, neck lifts, eyelid surgery, browlifts, rhinoplasty) breast surgery (including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and breast reconstruction), body contouring (including liposuction and abdominoplasty). Greater expertise hones greater results and peace-of-mind.
Before undergoing a facelift, it is essential to attune the exact anatomy of your face. A thorough evaluation must encompass questions suchas: how much volume loss you have, damage your skin has sustained, and the types of asymmetries your face shows. And, because everyone has asymmetries of the face – no one is perfect – it’s best to assume you won’t become perfectly symmetric post-surgery. However, a good surgeon will able to spot these asymmetries and manage them by making adjustments during surgery, to drive best outcomes.
As part of any facelift procedure, surgical rejuvenation must consider volume. Why? Because as we age, we lose fat, resulting in facial sagging – and not just the cheeks and eyes. It’s essential the options for adding volume back into the face are discussed and planned before surgery rolls out. This plan can include dermal filler injections, Botox, fat transfer or implant surgery.
Everyone deserves a positive surgical journey – and one that ensures results that speak the real you, and greater lift – for the long-term. Face facts and reach for specialist team to guide you.
