There’s an old saying that goes, “Like mother, like daughter.” If recent cosmetic facial plastic surgery trends are correct, this saying is becoming increasingly relevant. Just recently, there has been an increase in mother-daughter duos coming to my office in Charlotte for a consultation. During the consultation, both the mother and the daughter get to share a unique type of bonding that’s fun, feels good, and can also make them look great!
Going through the plastic surgery process together can actually make people feel much more at ease and comfortable with their procedure, as they know that they have someone there to support them throughout the entire process. One of the most common mother-daughter procedures performed today is the facelift. Undergoing a facelift, either surgical or non-surgical, is great for women of all ages, as the results can be made completely customizable and age appropriate for whomever is having the procedure performed.
For young women, a liquid facelift can be a great option to rejuvenate the face. A liquid facelift is is non-invasive, quick, requires no downtime, and can be done in the office without anesthesia or surgery. The liquid facelift is comprised of facial fillers to add lost volume, Botox to weaken muscles and diminish the appearance of crow’s feet and wrinkles, and a series of chemical peels to create vibrante and smoother skin. If you’re interested in learning more about the liquid facelift, I encourage you to contact my office today to schedule your initial consultation.
An older woman with more advanced signs of aging may elect to undergo a surgical facelift, which is performed under general anesthesia and as an outpatient procedure. Before undergoing the procedure, I make sure to address any and all questions or concerns that my patients may have towards their surgery. During a traditional facelift procedure, I make incisions in the temple and the hairline, where they are then hidden inside the ear or in its natural crease. The goal of a traditional facelift is to lift sagging tissue, remove excess skin or fat, and add volume when needed. I commonly advise patients with fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections to undergo a medical grade chemical peel to improve the appearance of the skin.
Following the procedure, patients can expect some bruising and swelling for the first couple of weeks, but all should subside in the months following your surgery, leaving you with fantastic and natural looking results.
