THINKING ABOUT A FACELIFT? TALK TO DR. ZUBOWSKI FIRST

In my experience not every person who thinks they need a facelift actually does, and that’s why it is so important to find and consult with a reputable cosmetic rejuvenation surgeon (preferably board certified in both plastic surgery and general surgery) before you decide to move forward.

The goal of a facelift is not to advertise that you’ve had cosmetic work. Rather, it should subtly revitalize your appearance with a natural looking improvement. There are several reasons why I might recommend a traditional facelift. If my examination reveals the majority of certain indications, then and only then will I suggest that you seriously consider the procedure.

So what are some of these indications? Firstly, people are continually observing that you look tired and/or down, when the opposite is true. During your examination I will be looking for a loss of facial muscle tone and skin elasticity that extends to the neck area. Have you noticed the appearance of deepening creases around your nose and mouth and unflattering jowls? Does it seem that your chin, as you’ve aged, is less defined? And finally, have you taken to wearing neck hugging sweaters and tops in an attempt to hide an obviously aging neck? Patients who present with a tired appearance or have loss of muscle tone and skin elasticity usually will benefit from a mini-facelift that does not include the neck.

This procedure is appropriate for those of you who are just beginning to notice the signs of aging. There are also options other than surgery for patients who don’t have significant signs of facial and neck aging yet, but who could benefit from a facial “tune-up” with injectables such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and/or Botox®.
