Who Has a Facelift?

by | Dec 19, 2021 | Blog, Facelift

First things first, if you have had a deep plane facelift, chances are that nobody needs to know except you! The Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift that I perform is the most advanced.

It can turn back the appearance clock by up to 15 years without you looking unnatural or distorted.

The facelifts of years gone by, or even of today when performed by inexperienced practitioners who may not have stayed up with the latest advances, could be detected.

Typically, the tell-tale signs were an overly ‘pulled’ look of the skin and with features appearing out of proportion.

The Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift creates a more define jawline, a smoother, more youthful looking neckline, and more pronounced cheekbones. When combined with eyelid or eyebrow surgery the hooding of excessive skin around the eyes can also be addressed.

Recovery time is less, scarring is less visible (incisions are made by the hairline which is easily covered), and patients report looking like themselves, only younger! Deep plane facelifts are natural because the patient’s own ligaments are re-tensioned and repositioned.

The stereotypes of the woman who has a facelift are also well overdue for an upgrade.

Reality television and mainstream media present images of lives that, while may be entertaining, many women can’t relate to. Stereotypes of ‘trophy wives’ are both derogatory to the person depicted and unhelpful to others when this is the main image presented. Images of men who have had facial plastic surgery are also rarely presented however men also choose to address the signs of ageing in this way.

The women and men who consult with me come from all walks of life. What they have in common is that they are seeking to restore aspects of their physical appearance that they once took for granted.

Ageing happens to us all and seeking to look as best as you can or as young as you feel is normal and healthy. While many people embrace and surrender to the naturally occurring changes in their appearance, many others don’t think twice about dying their hair or upgrading their skincare. Adaptation to your health and physical needs over time makes sense. There should be no stigma with exploring the many pathways available and deciding what is best for you.

Of course, surgery is serious and should never be entered into without proper consideration. Safety, your recovery period, being both physically and mentally healthy to start with, having realistic expectations, affordability and feeling comfortable with your chosen surgeon and their team are all important things to assess.

Part of the process may also involve smashing stereotypes.

One of my recent Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift patients said how much angst was involved in her decision-making process because she couldn’t relate to, or see herself, represented in the stereotypes mentioned above. A mother of five and highly successful businesswoman she had become reclusive, avoiding face to face meetings, and connecting via phone calls over zoom meetings as the changes in her appearance impacted her.

Giving herself permission to explore whether a facelift was right for her was extra hard because she didn’t see herself as vain or insecure, and she wasn’t.

Healthy, confident women and men are empowered to do what they feel is right for them.
