Can A Facelift Be Paired With Other Cosmetic Procedures?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


Facial rejuvenation with a facelift won't stop the aging process, but it can push the reset button on your appearance. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a skin tightening procedure to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles for dramatic results. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV men and women to tackle the signs of facial aging and look years younger. It is also easily paired with other complementary cosmetic procedures, such as an eyelid lift, brow lift, and nonsurgical options, either at the time of surgery or later on, to enhance your overall results.

The experienced team at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified and fellowship-trained Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint are proud to offer this life-changing procedure to address lax dermal tissue and attain a more youthful, tighter appearance. Here is a closer look from Dr. Myint on some of the most commonly recommended cosmetic procedures to complement a facelift and why combining aesthetic treatments can provide fantastic overall facial rejuvenation results.

Should I consider a facelift?

Are your eyelids or brows droopy? Has your lower jawline lost definition and has sagging skin? When you look in the mirror, do you see fine lines and wrinkles, even when your face is at rest? If you answered yes to those questions, perhaps it is time to consider facial rejuvenation with a facelift. A traditional facelift procedure can include the top, middle, and lower portions of the face and help men and women recapture their youthful appearance when the signs of getting older begin to creep in. However, with advanced surgical techniques, patients today can opt for a variety of options, including a mini facelift, lower facelift, or the most popular, a full facelift.

What other cosmetic procedures work well with a facelift?

Facial rejuvenation with a facelift procedure can remove sagging, loose skin, and get rid of those troublesome spots of fine lines and wrinkles. But, what about pairing your facelift with other cosmetic procedures to allow for one recovery period? The following are some common cosmetic techniques that complement a facelift:

1. Eyelid surgery

Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a rejuvenating cosmetic surgery for the eyelid area. It can tackle loose hanging skin on the upper eyelids or puffiness on the lower. It can help one or both areas simultaneously to lift sagging skin out of the eyes and smooth out bags underneath. It is a common procedure to pair alongside a facelift for optimal results.

2. Brow lift

If you have substantial facial aging in the brow area, then a facelift may not be enough. However, a brow lift is a perfect partner for a rhytidectomy because it will lift and tighten the uppermost part of the face, while a facelift targets the lower two-thirds.

3. Nonsurgical skin tightening

Dr. Myint and the expert team at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery offer laser resurfacing treatments with the latest technology. While a facelift tightens skin and underlying tissue, nonsurgical skin tightening with laser treatments improves the appearance and quality of the skin itself. Patients will enjoy their facelift results with more beautiful-looking skin.

4. Injectables

Dermal fillers and BOTOX® are some of the most requested treatments at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV. They offer a quick and easy way for patients to restore facial volume, smooth out wrinkles, and relax creases on the brow or forehead area. They are an easy anti-aging solution to incorporate after a facelift procedure to enhance and prolong a patient's facelift results.

What are my next steps?

The popularity of facelift procedures continues to grow as women and men realize the fantastic, natural-looking results it can provide. As with any elective procedure, you should undergo facial rejuvenation when you are mentally and physically healthy. It would help if you also discussed your goals with an experienced, qualified expert, like Dr. Myint at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, He understands the natural aging process and can determine the right combination of anti-aging procedures to help you look and feel years younger.
