I’m interested in getting a facelift. However, there are so many different techniques out there. In fact, it seems like there’s a new type of facelift every day. Can you explain to me what some of the more common or more effective facelift techniques are and what they’re best at treating?
The number of facelift techniques that are described is mind-boggling. Most of these “techniques” are merely marketing tricks to re-name a common procedure that has been performed for years. There is even one large corporation that is nationwide which has trademarked the name of a facelift and used mass marketing to convince the public it is something better and unique. Don’t be fooled. Most facelift techniques or variations of incisions and elevations of the deeper fascial layer. Regardless of the name that is given, incising the skin, gaining access to the fascial layer and elevating it in some way is a requirement for an effective and long-lasting facial result.
