As we age, our defined facial features and structures begin to thin and can start to droop or sag. The natural loss of collagen, combined with effects from sun exposure and even genetic traits, cause our skin to lose its elasticity and obscure the shapes and angles of our jawline and cheekbones.
Thankfully, facelift procedures have become a proven and safe way to restore a youthful look to your face and perhaps bring back confidence from a toned and defined face structure. Dr. Jennifer Walden specializes in performing the fusion facelift that addresses all facets of facial aging in one procedure.
In this procedure, Dr. Walden will reshape the face around the cheeks, eyebrows, eyes, and chin to create a fuller and more youthful look. The excess skin is removed, and the quality of the remaining skin is improved. This helps to create a more even tone and color to blend in with the rest of your body.
Despite the “all-in-one” procedure, recovery from the fusion facelift is no longer than standard procedures conducted elsewhere. For the first week after your surgery, you should limit sun exposure and harsh cleansers for the first few weeks. For patients that did not have laser resurfacing, a little cover-up makeup should be all that is needed.
After the first few weeks, the scars will begin to fade and should be nearly invisible 6 weeks after the surgery. During the fusion facelift, Dr. Walden keeps incisions as small as necessary and strategically locates them to be hidden once everything has healed.
