Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin develop on the face and neck over time, making you look older than you are. While plenty of creams and non-surgical options exist, plastic surgery is often the best way to achieve a younger and more rejuvenated facial appearance.
Dr. Bravo is one of the most trusted and well-respected cosmetic surgeons in Madrid, and he is committed to helping his patients achieve the physical appearances they desire.
Below, we’ll discuss some of the most important things Dr. Bravo considers when addressing aging on the face.
What Is the Purpose of Facial Rejuvenation?
Facelift and neck lift surgery are two of the most transformational facial plastic surgery procedures available to adult women and men. With these surgeries, Dr. Bravo elevates the underlying tissue, removes excess skin, and tightens the remaining skin to create a more youthful appearance.
To create stunning results for the face, Dr. Bravo focuses on these three aspects during his facial procedures:
1. Well-Defined Jawline
While many people don’t fully realize it, the jaw is one of the most important features of facial aesthetics. Sagging jowls that efface a defined jawline and excessive volume beneath it distract from the natural appearance of the face.
Because of this, Dr. Bravo focuses on creating definition along the jawline by eliminating sagging jowls, tightening the deep layers of the face and reducing the volume beneath the mandible to separate it from the neck and make it stand-out. This creates a nice and clean, clear shadow (called a gonial shadow) beneath the full length of the jaw (not only under the chin), highlighting the defined contours.
Dr. Bravo’s reduction neck lift emphasizes minimizing volume beneath the jaw, helping sculpt an angular and youthful jawline that is clearly distinct from the neck.
2. Extended Submental Line and Slim Neck Contours
Along with a defined jawline, Dr. Bravo addresses issues in the submental area (under the chin), such as “turkey neck” or a double chin deformity.
During a facelift or neck lift, Dr. Bravo’s objective with the submental area is to create a nice, straight line when a person is viewed from the profile and a flat surface below the chin, even when the patient flexes their neck.
Additionally, there should be a single crease between the chin and neck when the patient looks down. Even though this is may seem to be a small detail, by creating definition in the submental area, Dr. Bravo can help a patient’s entire face look younger and more attractive.
3. Eliminate Wrinkles, Lines, and Bands
As mentioned above, wrinkles and lines on the face and neck can make a person look much older than they actually are.
A facelift addresses many of these lines across the jawline and cheeks, and a neck lift seeks to correct the horizontal neck lines and vertical neck bands that may have developed over time. These improvements are achieved by removing excess skin on the face and neck and then pulling the remaining skin and muscle tight to create a more toned and youthful appearance that can boost your confidence and make you feel more comfortable with how you look.
