When Should Upper Facial Rejuvenation Be Combined With a Facelift?

To undergo a facelift means rejuvenating your lower face and neck. Facelifts eliminate sagging skin, sharpen a jawline softened by age, and tighten and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. 

But as you plan for facelift surgery, have you considered adding upper facial rejuvenation?

At Clinica Gomez Bravo, Dr. Bravo combines every facelift procedure with a platysmaplasty (neck lift) to create a consistent, natural look for your lower face and neck since flaccid skin, excess fat, or visible bands on your neck will show your true age. 

The same is true for your upper face. That’s why it’s essential to consider adding upper facial rejuvenation procedures to your facelift to ensure your entire face looks youthful and refreshed. 

Options for Upper Facial Rejuvenation

Once you’ve addressed the signs of aging in your lower face, consider including additional procedures to rejuvenate your face and keep your features balanced and youthful. 

Eye Rejuvenation

The skin around your eyes is the thinnest on your body and, therefore, the easiest to damage with age, sun, or excessive rubbing. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eye lift, fixes the signs of aging around your eyes and eyelids, addressing drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, crow’s feet, and dark circles. 

  • Upper Blepharoplasty: Dr. Bravo utilizes a technique known as Autoaugmentation Upper Blepharoplasty to correct ptosis (sagging) in the upper eyelids without removing volume. This method takes the sections of skin and fat removed from the droopy area of the eyelid and uses them to add volume to the upper eyelid nearest to your eyebrow. 
  • Lower Blepharoplasty: Dr. Bravo uses an internal and external approach to his lower blepharoplasty technique, creating more support for the lower lids and anchoring the muscles around the lids for more lasting results. 
  • Non-surgical Treatments: To address the loss of volume under the eyes or stubborn crow’s feet, Dr. Bravo also offers non-surgical options, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, fat transfer, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and skin resurfacing treatments. 

Lateral Brow Lift

As you age, the outer (or lateral) part of your eyebrows begins to succumb to the pull of gravity, leaving you looking tired or sad. This may be remedied in mild cases using BOTOX® Cosmetic; however, a more pronounced and lasting look is achieved with a lateral brow lift. 

An endoscopic lateral brow lift (brow tail lift) is a minimally invasive procedure designed to restore your natural brow curve and give you a younger appearance. Small incisions behind your hairline around your temple elevate the outer brow and reduce the appearance of sagging. 

Dr. Bravo may augment the lift with fat grafting around your temples or brow area to replace age-related volume loss.

Lip Lift

One part of your mid-face that a facelift does not address is your lips. Did you know that one of the essential elements of perceiving a youthful face is found in your lips? Younger women tend to show around two to four millimeters of upper teeth when their mouth is partially open but unsmiling. The aging process causes your upper lip to lengthen and cover your teeth, even more so if you’ve had lip fillers.  

Consider adding a lip lift to your procedure to add another element of youthfulness to your overall look. While fillers may replace the fullness that diminishes with age, a lip lift addresses the lengthening of your upper lip as you age. Dr. Bravo uses an incision at the base of your nose to gently lift your lip, leaving you with a more youthful pout.
