Reasons to Choose an UpLift Facelift

All You Need to Know About an UpLift FaceliftFacelift surgery has certainly come a long way in terms of techniques and varieties. Today’s facial plastic surgeons are able to create real anti-aging results through facelift surgery in its many forms. One of the most recent developments in the world of facial rejuvenation is the UpLift facelift, an effective but minimally invasive approach. If you’ve been considering a surgical intervention to reverse the effects of aging on your own face, there are several reasons to think about an UpLift facelift.

Erase Up to a Decade With an UpLift Facelift

While nothing can stop the aging process completely, an UpLift facelift can do much to turn back the hands of time and reverse some of the signs of aging from your face and neck. The surgical changes made during an UpLift procedure will make you look younger than your chronological age by up to 10 years. That’s a new 40-year-old face for a 50-year-old patient, and so on. By tightening skin, muscles, and supportive tissues, the UpLift goes to the root of your aging problem and corrects it. Consult with your facial plastic surgeon to discuss the specific anti-aging benefits this procedure can offer to you.

UpLift Facelifts Require Minimal Downtime

Many prospective facelift patients worry about finding enough time to recover from a full surgery. An UpLift facelift, however, offers real results to patients without the month of recovery they might be expecting. The entire healing process after an UpLift facelift typically lasts about one  to two weeks, after which patients are able to resume their normal activities. You may experience some of your side effects, like swelling and light bruising, beyond the first two weeks. These signs are often easy to cover with makeup, starting one week after your surgery. Talk to your facial plastic surgeon about specific recovery instructions and make sure you follow his advice to have the smoothest, quickest recovery possible.

The UpLift Facelift Blends Two Procedures Into One

The UpLift facelift is not a mini-lift, because it is not simply a skin suspension procedure. Instead, the UpLift includes both complex neck reconstruction, muscle reattachment, liposuction if required, and the tightening of the supportive tissues of the face. Any incisions made for the UpLift facelift will be well hidden inside the ear, around the earlobe, and under the chin in the natural creases of the skin. The procedure is typically performed with intravenous anesthesia and typically lasts about 2 to 3 hours.

Developed by Dr. Anurag Agarwal, a Naples board certified facial plastic surgeon, the UpLift facelift draws from the techniques of a traditional lower facelift and neck lift. The focus of the UpLift procedure is on the jawline and upper neck region, a key area that will often show the first signs of aging in men and women. While the UpLift facelift is not an answer for aging concerns in the mid and upper portions of the face, the changes made to the lower region are dramatic.

Are You a Good Candidate for the UpLift Facelift?

As with any surgery, not everyone is an ideal candidate for the UpLift procedure. Many prospective patients can be considered, however, given the nature of the surgery. If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate the lower face and upper neck quickly but effectively, this might be the right procedure for you. If you can dedicate at least 7-10 days to healing from your surgery, an UpLift could be a smart choice.

To be considered for the UpLift procedure, you must be exhibiting some of the initial signs of aging in the lower facial region. These could include fine lines and wrinkles, fatty deposits, loose and sagging skin, and unhappiness with the way aging has changed you. Typically, patients are 35 years or older for this procedure and there is no upper age limit for an UpLift. For an UpLift procedure, you must be in good overall health, not smoke, and have realistic expectations for your post-surgical results. The best way to determine if an UpLift is right for you is through a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
