Combating Ageing Signs: Facelift and Jawline Contouring

As we age, our faces undergo natural changes, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of definition in the jawline. Thankfully, modern plastic surgery offers effective solutions to combat these signs of ageing. In this article, we will explore two popular procedures: the facelift and jawline contouring, discussing their benefits and what you can expect from each.

Facelift: restoring youthful vibrancy

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face and reverse the effects of ageing. It involves tightening underlying facial tissues, removing excess skin, and repositioning facial soft tissues. This comprehensive approach targets deep wrinkles, jowls, and sagging skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

During a facelift, incisions are strategically placed to minimise visible scarring. The surgeon carefully lifts and repositions the underlying tissues, smoothing out wrinkles and removing any excess skin. Facial muscles may also be tightened to enhance the overall results. The procedure can address various concerns, such as deep folds around the nose and mouth, loose skin in the mid-face, and sagging jowls.

Jawline contouring: defining your profile

A well-defined jawline is often associated with youth and attractiveness. Jawline contouring, also known as mandibular augmentation, is a procedure that enhances the jawline’s shape and definition. This can be achieved through various techniques, including chin implants, dermal fillers, or even surgical reshaping of the jawbone.

Chin implants are a popular option for individuals with a weak or receding chin. They provide added projection and definition, creating a more balanced and harmonious facial profile. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment the jawline temporarily. These injectable treatments add volume and sculpt the chin and jawline, providing a more youthful appearance.

Combining procedures for optimal results

In many cases, patients may benefit from combining a facelift with jawline contouring to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. By addressing both the upper and lower regions of the face, this combined approach can provide more harmonious and natural-looking results.
