Face Lifts Facts

Face Lift Facts from Beverly Hills.

We will take a look at the most pertinent facts that you should consider when seeking a Facelift or facelift procedure. Today, we will concentrate on the basics of what a facelift can and can not do when it comes to rejuvenating the face.

Facelifts have been around for over 4,ooo years and the purpose reamins the same today….to rejuvenate the face. In simple terms, the facelift should tighten the underlying muscle layer (SMAS) of the face and remove excess skin and fatty tissue. Please keep that in mind when reading some of the more outlandish claims that are all over the internet.

The problem is the many variations on facelifts that have emerged over the past 20 years, including some that are not capable of accomplishing the basic goals previously outlined. Some do not allow SMAS tightening or skin removal, making them less effective in rejuvenating the face.

In the next segment on Facelifts, we’ll take a closer look at some of the more common types of Facelifts but today let’s end with palcing the apprpriate amount of emphasis on the aesthetic importance of facelifts and what they should accomplish. I have been performing Face Lifts for over 20 years and while the techniques have changed, my focus has not. The primary goal of my Facelift, as all my plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures is to create/restore the most attractive facial aesthetics. As simple as this sounds, this aesthetic vision is not taught in medical school or surgical training. It is however, the most important factor to consider when you are trying to improve your appearance. Isn’t that the purpose of having plastic and cosmetic surgery afterall?

The face has various facial features that carry different aesthetic importance. Some will transform the face into one that is youthful and attractive while others have much less impact. These aesthetic principles, The Palmer Code is outlined in my new book “What’s Your Number…the palmer code.” I strongly suggest you read and learn what makes the face and body attractive before you have any type of plastic surgery treatment or procedure. For now, I’ll leave you with this thought..if the cheeks are not ideally shaped, during any type of facelift procedure, the face will not be perceived as youthful and attractive and may actually appear overly pulled, tight and mishapen. The very best, top rated plastic and cosmetic surgeons understand this and when you see inspired Facelift results (gorgeous celebrities) this aesthetic vision has been followed (the Celebrity Lift).
