Female face lifts in Charlotte NC
Female face lifts in Charlotte are still more common than male face lifts. Because the skin on a woman’s face is thinner and more flexible than a man’s, and the ligaments are usually not as strong, a female face lift also requires greater skill, but can achieve greater results. The surgeon needs to make the initial incisions in slightly different places in order to make sure they can’t be seen. A woman’s face also tends to have less vascular skin, which means less post-operative bleeding.
The key to performing female face lifts in Charlotte is to recognize the facial traits most often associated with femininity in our society. These include a greater lateral arch to the eyebrows, a narrower nose, fuller lips and smoother skin. A surgeon who performs female face lifts in Charlotte will probably want to accentuate these qualities, or give them to a woman who doesn’t already have them. At the very least, he or she won’t want to damage them in any way.
There are two basic kinds of facelifts — the deep plane facelift and the deep plane minituck. The deep plane facelift is a more extensive form of surgery than the deep plane minituck, which means a longer recovery time. If you’re still fairly young or you’ve already had a face lift, you may be a candidate for a more limited procedure called a “weekend facelift.” Some surgeons do something like this, but not all do. Be sure to ask yours about it.
