Can a Facelift Look Natural?
A facelift is a very desirable procedure for many people, but one of the main hang-ups people have is that they worry the results will look unnatural. It is completely normal to feel this way especially with all of the horror stories roaming around the internet about undesirable results and “botched surgeries.” Often times these horror stories from plastic surgery were because the surgery was done by an inexperienced surgeon.

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that helps to keep skin be tight. As we age, our body gradually slows down the production of collagen causing the skin to sag. External factors such as smoking, poor diet, sun damage, weather, and harsh skin cleansers can cause the loss of collagen to occur at a faster rate. This makes your skin looser and laxer every day, which can cause you to look tired and have an older appearance. That is why a facelift is such a desired procedure as it helps to lift and tighten the skin for a youthful look. However, an experienced surgeon won’t just focus on the overlying skin as this can lead to undesirable results, they also need to contour the underlying facial muscles. The superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) is tightened and contoured to reposition the underlying structures of the face. The point of repositioning the underlying structures is so that your skin, once re-draped, will lay precisely where it should and have a natural elevation.
There is an art to facelift surgery. Part of the artistic skill of the facelift is knowing how much skin needs to be removed for the perfect result. During the facelift procedure, the skin is lifted off the face and stretched over the face, then the excess skin is removed. If too much skin is removed this can result in an undesirable look. Overcorrection is far more noticeable than under-correction. Your skin should move naturally with your facial expressions, be soft and supple, and cover the underlying SMAS without putting pressure on it. Overstretched skim will not adhere to these rules and cause you to look unnatural.
