As it ages, our skin goes through many changes because of genetics, exposure to the sun, stress, and other environmental factors. When you begin to look older than your years, it may adversely affect your confidence. You may consider rejuvenating your appearance with a facelift.
The facelift is a cosmetic procedure that offers your face a refreshed and more youthful appearance for years to come. Facelift procedures are also known as rhytidectomy, and it helps with eliminating several signs of aging on your face and neck area. This means you can get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, under-eye hollows, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and jowls that many facelift patients are upset or unsatisfied with.
The facelift is a highly customizable procedure that can be easily personalized to suit your unique requirements and help you feel confident in your appearance once again. For example, in patients with more minor signs of facial aging, the full techniques may not be required, meaning a mini facelift could be a better choice for you, reducing the cost and downtime from a full facelift.
Dr. Gilpin specializes in facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelift and neck lift surgery and strives to give you stunning results from your procedure that does not aim to change your existing features drastically but rather to enhance your natural beauty.
Our goal with every facelift procedure performed at Gilpin Facial Plastics is to offer natural-appearing results that are long-lasting and improve your facial anatomy. The advanced techniques we use to make sure that you do not end up with the pulled appearance that an inexperienced surgeon may unknowingly give you.
There is no ideal age to get a facelift, since everybody ages differently. If you are dissatisfied with the changes you see in your face, consider getting a facelift. Schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Gilpin, who will help you determine if the procedure will benefit you. A good candidate should be in good physical and emotional health and not be a smoker. Here are the changes in your face that can be eliminated with a facelift procedure:
- Sagging and loose skin in your neck and facial area
- The wrinkles which make you appear sad, angry or tired
- Loose skin at the sides of your face
- Looking older than your years
- Visible wrinkles and lines on your face and neck
The facelift is a highly customizable procedure and Dr. Gilpin uses different techniques to offer you the desired results. Here are the options you can choose from:
- Deep plane facelift: this technique will help eliminate the wrinkles and sagging skin from the lower part of your face, neck, and jowls. The SMAS area will also be lifted and tightened, giving you natural-appearing and long-lasting results.
- Limited incision facelift: Dr. Gilpin uses this less invasive technique when you require subtle enhancement in your lower face region. He will use shorter incisions and your recovery will also be shorter.
- Neck lift: if you have sagging skin in the neck area as well as a double chin, the neck lift procedure will help you the most. It eliminates the neckbands, giving your chin a more youthful definition.
- Facelift with laser resurfacing: Dr. Gilpin offers a combination of laser resurfacing with the facelift procedure so that all finer signs of aging like redness. Sunspots can also be addressed giving you an overall rejuvenation.
Most of our patients see their final results within a month or two after their facelift surgery. You may continue to see some subtle improvements for a year. However, these results cannot be permanent, because the skin continues to age. By continuing a healthy lifestyle, you can retain your results for a longer period.
Dr. Gilpin has the expertise to help you look about 10 years younger with the facelift procedure. In case of any future touchups to your results, you can talk to Dr. Gilpin about other procedures, such as non-invasive options like Botox and dermal fillers.
Franklin is a city and the county seat of Williamson County in Tennessee. Located about 21 miles south of Nashville, it is one of the principal cities of the Nashville metropolitan area and Middle Tennessee. In the 19th century, Franklin majorly depended on farming with the cultivation of Hemp and tobacco, and raising purebred livestock was another common occupation.
Today, it has developed as a residential and business suburb of Nashville. Several individual buildings, as well as five historic districts, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other than these, visitors enjoy nature at the 34-acre Pinkerton Park and Fort Granger which can be reached by a trail.
There are several festivals in Franklin that attract visitors by the droves, including the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival held in late September and Main Street Festival and Pumpkinfest, which is an annual fundraiser held on the Saturday before Halloween.
The Dickens of a Christmas is celebrated every second week in December and features volunteers in costumes from Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. Music and dancing are a big part of this festival, and visitors are served Victorian cuisine.
