Appearing inauthentic or windblown is a common concern for people seeking to address facial aging with a facelift. After a facelift, people fear they will not look like themselves.
Facelifts that leave you looking like the skin was pulled back so far, typically happens when an inexperienced cosmetic surgeon pulls the skin back too tightly, causing an unnatural, overly-taut look.
Facelifts have evolved over the years, allowing for less common instances of a windblown appearance from happening.
Dr. Bridges uses his vast skill set and aesthetic eye to leave his patients with the facelift they desire.
How Do I Pick the Right Cosmetic Surgeon?
One way to ensure you will not leave your facelift surgery with unnatural results is to pick the right plastic surgeon.
Facelift surgery is a complex procedure that requires a professional and experienced cosmetic surgeon.
With over 23 years of cosmetic and breast reconstruction experience behind him, Dr. Bridges is an experienced and trust-worthy cosmetic surgeon.
He is committed to hearing about your aesthetic goals and concerns to surpass your expectations.
What Does It Mean to Be Windblown?
The “windblown” effect after a facelift happens when tension is placed on the skin instead of performing the facelift within the deeper level of the face called the submuscular aponeurotic system.
This technique will leave your skin pulled back, revealing an unnatural, tight look.
How Has the Way Facelifts Are Performed Changed?
After your consultation, Dr. Bridges will discuss the details of your facelift procedure where he will assess your facial anatomy and develop a personalized surgical plan to suit your goals.
A facelift can rejuvenate your face by minimizing the jowls on the lower face, repositioning the deeper tissues, and tightening the loose skin for a smoother appearance.
Repositioning the underlying tissues can also help fill hollow spaces in your cheeks and under the eyes.
The scars of your facelift procedure are typically hidden within the natural contours of the hairline and extend down around the earlobe and back into the hairline.
You can feel more confident that you will have a facelift that completely satisfies you.
