How Can I Get Natural-Looking Results with a Facelift?

Chances are that you have seen an Austin facelift patient whose looks seem drawn and unnatural. This “wind-swept” appearance undermines the whole purpose of a facelift: change that is subtle, effective, and attractive.

Poor surgical techniques often lead to this type of result. The good news is that a skilled surgeon can usually prevent these problems. Learn how Dr. Tjelmeland plans procedures to achieve high-quality outcomes.

Austin Facelift Patients and Meridian Plastic Surgery

Dr. Tjelmeland’s strategy with your facelift is to restore your appearance to a younger version of yourself. To understand rejuvenation, consider what caused unwanted changes in the first place. Over time:

  • The structure of the face loses its strength.
  • Skin becomes less elastic and begins to sag.
  • These combined effects form fine lines and wrinkles around the face.

As a result, Dr. Tjelmeland has found that the best facelifts address both the lower and the upper levels of the face—not just one or the other.

Our Surgical Approach to Facelift

In your procedure, Dr. Tjelmeland will:

  • Tighten the deep connective tissue of the face.
  • Remove loose skin and tighten the upper level of skin in a natural-looking way.

Focusing on only the deep connective tissue would leave the face open to wrinkles and sagging. However, addressing only the upper level of skin would put strain on the face, creating the “windswept” look. Because Dr. Tjelmeland completes both steps together, he can provide you with results that are more durable and natural-looking.

Meridian Plastic Surgery tailors every facelift to the individual. It’s the best way to ensure results that look like you, only rejuvenated and years younger. To learn more about how Dr. Tjelmeland can help you accomplish this goal through facelift, get in touch.
