What is a liquid facelift?

Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift essentially uses fillers and botox/dysport to restore the volume of your face lost by the aging process. It does not take the place of a facelift but beneficiallly adds to the final result.

What is a vertical facelift?

Direction of lift

Facelift
Hello Celine, IN order to understand this, you would need to know the "usual" way to perform a facelift, SMAS lift. The major direction of skin redirection is in the posterior direction, towards the ear. In a vertical lift, the primary redirection is toward the loser eye lid. The link below will provide you more information. http://drkulick.com/procedures_vfl.php

Dr. David Sherris answered:

Does facelift always look natural?

They should!

Strength_training
Most experienced facelift surgeons aim to deliver natural results. During healing things may look distorted, but with time things relax and swelling resolves. The people you see who do not look natural have usually done too many facelift (3 or more depending on the patient). See a facial plastic surgery expert to get an idea!

Dr. Brock Ridenour answered:

Why do men think they need facelifts?

Same as women

Men
We live in a youth-oriented society that is discriminatory towards the older population (ageism). While men are not judged on their appearance to the same degree as women, some men feel the need to look young in order to be confident and competitive at work. Men, like women, want to look as young as they feel. Facial rejuvenation in men should be conservative in order to avoid looking feminized

How severe is the pain of a facelift?

Should be mild

Facelift
Your facial plastic surgeon can give you details on what to expect, but the discomfort is usually mild and relatively short lived. Severe pain, especially if associated with swelling, after facelift may be sign of a serious problem and you should report this to your surgeon ASAP.

Dr. Barry Press answered:

Is there a good alt to facelift at 60?

Please understand...

Botox
the difference between a facelift and its alternatives. A good facelift elevates and repositions the skin and soft tissue of the face to more youthful positions. It does little to nothing about surface changes. Many of the alternatives (Botox, fillers, laser) can improve the surface characteristics of the skin but do nothing to reposition the soft tissues. So, often these are complementary.

How many men are having facelifts now?

Male Facelift

Skin
More and more men are becoming more aware of the importance of their appearance in their daily lives. In addition to medical skin care, surgical rejuvenation can make a big impact on an older man's appearance. Make sure your surgeon is well versed in the different goals of male and female facelifts so you don't end up with an overly feminized, tight, unnatural look.

Can pregnant women undergo a facelift?

No

Children
Non-essential procedures should be avoided, as the developing child is susceptible to physiologic stresses. Additionally, it is very unlikely a 30 year old would be an appropriate candidate for a facelift.
