How To Enhance Your Facelift



How To Enhance Your Facelift

There’s nothing that effectively reverses the signs of aging better than getting a facelift. It’s globally known for smoothing out wrinkles and giving your face the definition it’s lost over the years. While the procedure alone is very effective, getting additional treatments on top of it can truly give you a full face rejuvenation. For final results that will restore your youthful appearance, here are popular procedures that can help enhance your facelift:

How To Enhance Your Facelift

Eyelid Surgery

While a facelift can firm up your appearance, getting eyelid surgery can help provide optimal results around your eyes. This procedure specifically tackles the bags under your eyes and puffiness on the lids that typically come with age. With careful precision, your surgeon will make an incision and remove any excess skin around your eyes and neatly tuck away stitches right under your eye’s natural creases so there’s zero evidence of having any work done. This procedure is ideal for those who have excess skin in that area of their face, making them look tired even when they’re not. Eyelid surgery is a great way to transform your appearance, helping you look refreshed and give off the illusion that you’ve gotten your 8 hours of sleep all these years, even if you didn’t.

Brow Lift

Getting a brow lift is a great procedure that compliments a facelift as well as eyelid surgery. Not only does it remove any saggy skin on your forehead, but the slight lift can also help eliminate a heavy looking brow and help smooth out crows feet beside your eyes. Incisions are most commonly hidden along the patient’s hairline so the scar looks virtually invisible. Patients report having satisfying results, looking more awake and alert instead of having an unintentional stressed or tired appearance.


A great way to complement your facelift is by combining it with minor liposuction. It’s an effective way to help add definition to the face for a more sculpted appearance. This is typically done around the neck as older patients tend to have extra fat deposits in this area that cause that “double chin” effect. Liposuction is known to help eliminate this and help contour and elongate the neckline for more desired results.

Botox and Fillers

While a facelift can produce effective results on its own, Botox and fillers can help further eliminate trickier wrinkles in areas around the lips and eyes. Botox is also great to use as a preventative measure to help maintain the youthful results of your facelift as it helps relax the muscles that are responsible for causing fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to eliminating lines, fillers are an effective way to also enhance certain facial features and restore volume to targeted areas of your face. Juvederm, for example, is a great way to plump up thinning lips or contour your cheeks or jawline.

Chemical Peels Or Laser Treatments

While facelifts are an effective way to eliminate sagging skin around your face and helping eliminate deep lines and wrinkles, they don’t tackle the quality of your skin. For full facial rejuvenation, depending on the type of skin issues you’d like to tackle, opting for a chemical peel or other laser treatments are great options to go for once you’re fully recovered from your surgery.

Chemical peels, or epidermal peels, are an effective way to help improve and smooth out your skin texture, even out skin tone, improve years of sun damage and further minimize fine lines and wrinkles. For more age-defying results, going for a laser treatment like the Profractional laser can help improve your skin’s appearance of scarring, wrinkles, and discolouration. Depending on the type of skin results you’re looking for, medical grade skin care products may also be sufficient enough to help with your post-surgery skin. It’s best to consult with your surgeon and see which route is best for you post-facelift.

Enhancing your facelift ultimately depends on the desired results you’re looking for and what you’re hoping to get out of the procedure. Getting a facelift isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” treatment, everyone is unique which means the procedure needs to be catered to each patient’s specific facial symmetry.
