Do fine lines, deep wrinkles, and aging spots concern you? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. These conditions are among the top concerns along with under-eye hollowness and lipstick lines for adults in their late 30s, 40s, and into their 50s. Your parents and grandparents may have thrown in the towel and said, “well, I guess it’s here to stay”. But today’s adults are no longer accepting that answer. We have treatment options not available before, like microneedling RF (Morpheus) which helps produce collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid and Calcium based fillers to fill in hollowed areas and botulinum (AKA Botox) to undo wrinkles or better prevent those from worsening or even forming. Gen Zs and Millennials are all about prevention and they use botulinum and fillers for prevention rather than for correction.

If you are beyond the millennial years and are part of the Gen X generation or beyond, don’t worry we got you covered with various forms of facelift procedures that are available to turn back the clock by at least a decade.


1. Facelifts eliminate the appearance of unsightly wrinkles

Facelifts work to tighten the skin and the tissues under the skin, like fascia, fat, and muscle to turn back the clock and give your face the lush plump appearance it once had. Although small incisions are usually made when performing these procedures, this is done in such a way as to make them as inconspicuous as possible – usually by placing them in the natural creases and folds so only you ever know about them. Eventually, most patients forget about these markings as well.

Regardless if a patient has a full facelift procedure, a mini facelift, or a non-invasive procedure performed, all of them agree that afterward, they are left with virtually no traces of wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, or neck areas that signify aging.


2. Facelifts improve facial contours

Not only do facelift procedures eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and even necklines and jowls; they can significantly improve your facial contours. The areas around the cheeks and lower eyelids are smoothed out, while a more attractive jawline is created in the process. Hint, hint for those seeking the #snatched jaw they once had or never did but always wanted one. For example, if you have an excessively fleshy neck area, what’s commonly referred to as submental fullness, your surgeon may suggest you have liposuction performed at the same time as the facelift. Furthermore, you may choose to have a microscopic tightening procedure done at the same time as your facelift, to not only pull your skin but improve its texture with energy devices like CO2 laser or Morpheus. There are so many new innovations with facelifts and skin tightening. The key is to feel comfortable with the choice you’ve made coming to The Spiegel Center and working with our doctors to choose the right treatments that will achieve the results you desire.


3. Choosing the right plastic surgeon

Before having a facelift procedure performed, you should ensure to choose a surgeon based on reputation and experience. This will not only ensure that the procedure is performed safely; it will ensure that you are fully satisfied with the end results. The easiest ways to find a suitable surgeon are to search for online referrals and reviews and to speak with other patients who have had procedures performed already. When performed properly, a facelift can enable you to look as much as a decade younger. To achieve the best possible results, it is imperative that a surgeon be chosen who specializes in facial enhancement procedures. In general, if you suffer from any medical conditions and/or use blood-thinning medications make sure to advise your medical team about all your medications and medical conditions to ensure that no complications are experienced afterward. Now stop second-guessing yourself and take action to place an inquiry and get your consultation booked. Good luck from all of us at TSC.
