Why do some facelifts look unnatural?
Have you ever wondered why some facelifts look unnatural? The surgeon’s skill level and technique play a large role in the look achieved by a facelift. You can have a natural look, if you choose a surgeon who is willing and able to create it. It can seem like all facelifts look unnatural, because when the results look natural you don’t even know the procedure took place. If you are thinking about facelift surgery, and want beautiful, natural-looking results, contact the Cosmetic Surgical Center today.
Goals and Technique
The results of a facelift will look unnatural if too much skin is removed. This creates a very tight face, limiting facial movement with animation. Believe it or not, some patients and surgeons actually prefer this outcome.
Dr. Rai feels that a good facelift is one that does not look like you have had surgery, even to friends and family. They should comment on your youthful appearance and glow without necessarily being able to tell you underwent an operation. Achieving this effect is truly the art of plastic surgery.
Dr. Rai will remove excess skin as a part of the procedure, but the real youth-restoring effect is achieved by repositioning the tissues beneath the skin, restoring your natural, youthful contours.
