Santa Barbara, CA - Dr. Robert W. Sheffield Mentions the Steps of the Facelift Procedure He Performs.  Signs of aging appearing on the face don’t follow any specific patterns. Hence, a person in his 60s with a face looking like 40s is equally possible as a person who looks way older than his actual age. This diverseness in the appearance of reduced skin elasticity, baggy jowls, fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness is based on various factors like one’s skincare routine, environment, habits, and genetics. Therefore, according to Dr. Sheffield, there is no particular age limit for having a facelift procedure.

“During a consultation, I generally ask my patients to see their reflections on a mirror and specify the signs they are getting bothered about. If it comes to conditions like lax skin on neck and face, or sagging jowl, the facelift Santa Barbara will appositely come in aid. But, if it’s about fine lines and wrinkles, I suggest them non-surgical treatments like medical spas,” said Dr. Robert W. Sheffield, SB Aesthetics.

It’s important to understand that the mini face lift Santa Barbara procedure is executed to bring the saggy tissues underneath the skin into their prior positions, which get loosen up with skins of the neck area, jowl, and cheek. However, contrary to other techniques, a facelift, also known as rhytidectomy done by Dr. Sheffield, ensures natural-looking outcomes instead of simply tightening the skin.

The procedure involves minute incisions for curving the front and backside of the ear. And, utilizing these incisions, the entire skin surrounding the face and neck area would be lifted. The lax fat gets repositioned with sutures to obtain a more youthful look. 

Dr. Robert W. Sheffield Brings More Lights on The Aging Process of Skin

With aging, deficiency in essential biochemical components like elastin and collagen happens in women. That's the reason gravity makes skins of the face and neck saggy. However, skin is not the single aspect this process is constrained in. Aging also slackens up the fibers holding the fat layers beneath the skin, which contributes to an overall aged appearance of the face. However, for patients without that much need of a surgical facelift, SB Aesthetics offers other minimally invasive treatments like liquid facelift and filers with PRP Facelift.

The doctor also added, "I have seen many younger patients approaching for a facelift, and the youngest patient I have performed a facelift on was at her mid-30s."

He also admitted that patients getting their facelift done within their 30s to 40s can remain on the good side compared to people having the procedure done after that age period. To back this statement, he also stated that their skin could bounce back faster during the recovery period because of having more elasticity and skin tone.
