Achieving Ageless Beauty: Exploring the Latest Facelift Trends

Miami Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jose Rodríguez-Feliz

Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity for a wide variety of reasons, including improved techniques meant to produce more natural-looking results and greater acceptance in many circles. There’s been a 19% increase in cosmetic surgeries just since 2019. In decades past, plastic surgery was often done in secret and not discussed by both the general public and celebrities alike. Today, “before and after” comparisons, healed results with a “thank you” to the surgeon, and even hospital pre-surgery selfies are plastered all over social media. The attitude towards cosmetic surgery has changed from trying to change yourself completely to enhancing natural beauty and attractiveness.

A more open discussion in general about having work done means more discussion about the types of techniques patients are choosing, how the results look with specific techniques, and which options might be ideal for you when making the choice to have cosmetic surgery. Trends throughout cosmetic surgery are bending toward a more subtle, natural appearance. This is especially true for what continues to be one of the most common cosmetic surgeries year after year: the Facelift. Facelift techniques have advanced greatly in the last several decades, and achieving a refreshed, natural-looking, youthful outcome is more possible than ever.

What is a Facelift?

In general, the Facelift is meant to create a younger-looking appearance, and this can be achieved by smoothing out wrinkles, tightening skin, and restoring lost facial fat. As aesthetics move away from overdone and dramatic changes, the trending goal of a Facelift is increasingly natural. Not to completely change the look of your face, but to look like you; just younger.

Also known as a rhytidectomy, a Facelift involves a plastic surgeon removing excess skin and tissue and tightening underlying structures. Which technique is used will determine how deep this manipulation will go. In some cases, the muscles and ligaments in the face responsible for movement may even be adjusted. If there are hollow or sunken areas in the face, fat transfer could be used to restore a full, healthy look, especially on the cheeks and under the eyes. In each case, your surgeon will ensure that incisions are made as discreetly as possible to avoid scarring.

Traditional Facelift

A traditional Facelift typically addresses the lower third of the face, from the mid-face down, and the upper layers of skin and tissue. The skin may even be manipulated separately from the underlying layers to smooth wrinkles. This surgery can help to define the jawline and address concerns like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Traditional Facelift is often combined with neck lift, blepharoplasty, or other techniques for comprehensive results. Since only the upper layers are manipulated with this method, there is a risk of the skin appearing overly tight if the tension cannot be placed in the ideal way.

Upper Facelift

In contrast to most Facelift options, the Upper Facelift addresses concerns in the forehead, eyebrows, and mid-face area. Forehead lines, sagging brows, and hollow temples can all greatly contribute to an aged appearance as well as a tired or dull look. Both men and women can see a more vibrant, alert appearance through the eyes and brows with an Upper Facelift. Depending on your aesthetic goals, other procedures can also be combined with the Upper Facelift, like eyelid lift or Lower Facelift.

Deep Plane Facelift

Arguably the most natural approach for Facelift results, the Deep Plane Facelift has gained popularity over the last decade as patients and surgeons see the clear advantages of this method. Since facial aging is caused by more than just loose skin and surface tissue, going deeper into the face can correct concerns more completely.

First, the Deep Plane Facelift adjusts and tightens the skin and underlying tissue as one unit for a more complex and nuanced result in those layers. In addition, during this technique, your surgeon will tighten and manipulate deep facial muscles and tendons so the results look incredibly natural and refreshed. Not just skin pulled tight over still-sagging muscle structure. Because this is a specialized technique, it is necessary to find a highly trained and qualified surgeon who has proven experience.

It’s All About Balance

The number of Facelifts performed is increasing every year due to more acceptance, a move away from over-plump fillers, and the prevalence of weight loss with Ozempic and other weight-loss medications. A great balance between looking more youthful and enhancing natural beauty is the key when it comes to all kinds of Facelifts for all kinds of reasons. Measured, proportional, refreshed, and simply natural.

The Importance Of Experience

It’s one thing to want natural results, it’s another thing to see them. The key to that is your surgeon. To learn more about what type of Facelift may be best for you, book a consultation with Florida Facelift expert Dr. Jose Rodríguez-Feliz and achieve brilliant, natural looking Facelift results.
