Top Procedures To Combine With A Facelift By Milan Lombardi MD on December 28, 2022

A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure, also known as rhytidectomy, for giving a more youthful look to the face. Facelifts can address any age-related changes, such as facial skin sagging, flabby jawlines, and drooping skin in the neck. Facelifts also smoothen the area around cheeks and chins.

There are several procedures relating to facelift cosmetic surgery. Combining your facelift with other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures can enhance the results even more, both economically and aesthetically. SynergyMD as your cosmetic surgery center in Tampa looks at the best combos.

Top Procedures To Combine With A Facelift

So what are the other top procedures that you can combine with a facelift? Facelifts are performed on the middle and lower portions of the face. Keeping that in mind, it is a great idea to combine other related procedures along with a facelift to obtain complete facial rejuvenation.

Here are some procedures to combine, but always consult your surgeon for personalized recommendations.

Facelift & Blepharoplasty:

Eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery that corrects any disfiguration of eyelids. This procedure is done on the upper and lower eyelids to lift sagging eyelids, get rid of creases around the area of eyes and remove wrinkles or tired look. After this surgery, patients feel refreshed while getting a younger appearance.

Facelift & Browlift:

The browlift procedure is performed on the upper third of the face, including the forehead and skin between the eyes. Combining this with a facelift will rejuvenate the entire face. Most patients prefer to do the eyelid, browlift, and facelift procedures concurrently for a beautiful, entirely rejuvenated and youthful facial appearance.

Facelift & Neck lift:

Neck lifts or lower rhytidectomy are procedures to improve the visible look around the neck and jawlines due to aging. The scope of this procedure varies depending on the patient. It can be done in a limited manner involving the area around the ears or more extensive manner involving the chin, jawlines, neck and ears. By combining a neck lift with a facelift, one can get an improved facial contour that corrects sagging skin on face and a double chin, turtle neck for a smoother, seamless face.

Facelift & Chin Augmentation:

Chin Augmentation is used to enhance and reshape the chin for a youthful appearance. During the procedure, an implant is inserted into the chin so as to balance the facial look. This particular facial surgery aims to provide correct height to the chin, forward projection and shape and when combined with a facelift, enhances the overall look of all facial features.

Facelift & Fat Grafting:

Fat grafting restores the youthful appearance by increasing facial fat volume. During the procedure, fat is taken from an area with excess fat and transferred to the face using a specialized surgical procedure. This excess purified fat is used to fill in the cheeks, around the eyes, jawlines, and other facial areas as needed.

Facelift & Injectables:

This is an injectable treatment method where a small amount of fillers is injected straight into facial tissues responsible for creating facial volume, smoothening muscles, and eradicating wrinkles. Botox, Dysport, Juneau, and Xeomin, and other dermal fillers are used in this non-surgical procedure. To get the best results out of a facelift, this one is an easy procedure to pair.

Facelift & Laser Treatment:

Laser rejuvenation procedure decreases dark spots, acne spots, age spots, scars, and other blemishes and gives the skin a smooth look at its best. This combined treatment has no side effects and zero recovery time. Doctors can recommend occasional laser rejuvenation treatments for long lasting youthful appearance after a facelift procedure.

Facelift & Chemical Peel:

Chemical peels combined with facelifts augment facelift surgery results. Chemical peels are non-surgical and act on the surface of skin to minimize visible signs of aging. Also, chemical peels are used to treat sun-damaged skin and remove blemishes and age spots. When combined with a facelift, chemical peels can be done few months after having a facelift. While a facelift reshapes facial features, it does not correct blemishes on the face and the like. Hence, combining a chemical peel after a facelift is very effective.

Facial surgeries are very common and popular. A facelift in Tampa is about facial balance and hence, combining a facelift with other procedures aids with targeting all areas of the face in one step.
