Everyone’s body is built and used entirely differently. Diet, lifestyle choices, and stress levels can certainly make an impact, but sometimes the way a person ages just comes down to genetics. Getting older is inevitable, and even though healthy eating, exercise, and a disciplined skincare routine might mitigate aging symptoms for a lot of people, surgical intervention works too.
Cutaneous facelifts have become more popular than ever. Their results help tighten aging, wrinkled skin giving you a more youthful appearance. So is this procedure for you? That’s a question only you can answer. But before you do we’ll fill you in on what exactly a cutaneous facelift is, the pros and cons of the procedure, and why it’s so popular in 2021!
What Is a Cutaneous Facelift?
A cutaneous facelift is one of the earliest facelift techniques ever developed! Which makes its surging popularity that much more impressive.
Used as a temporary way to tighten aging and wrinkled skin around the neck and lower face area, this technique doesn’t require manipulating the underlying musculature of the face. Instead, the surgeon makes incisions around the earlobes and the hairline and separates the skin from the musculature as conservatively as possible. Next, they pull it into its new, much tighter position. Finally, the surgeon will then trim the excess skin, place the appropriate sutures and that’s it!
