In the last couple of years, and accentuated by the Zoom and video meetings during the pandemic, beauty standards have shifted towards a desire for a square lower third of the face. What are the possible reasons? In this article, we will explore the different methods for achieving this look.
More angular faces give a greater impression of security and strength; they look better on screens; they usually have a more defined oval, and, therefore, their appearance is less sagging.
Besides this, a youthful look is characterized by defined lines on the face. When the line from the chin to the furthest point of the jaw begins to lose definition, the face looks less fresh and youthful.
More and more patients have been requesting the shape of the faces as celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Keira Knightley, and Olivia Wilde. They all have one thing in common: a more defined jawline and a more prominent chin.
How to achieve a facelift?
Facelifts are very popular among the population, and there are two ways of going through this procedure: choosing a surgical procedure or choosing a non-surgical one. We will go through the advantages and disadvantages of each of these methods.
Facelift through surgery
A surgical facelift aims to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and neck by tightening and smoothing the skin and underlying tissues. It can help reduce sagging, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. However, it's important to note that a facelift is a surgical procedure with associated risks.
Surgical treatments, by their nature, involve incisions, tissue manipulation, and anesthesia. This invasiveness can lead to a longer and more uncomfortable recovery period compared to non-surgical options, which often have minimal downtime.
2. Risk of Complications
Surgical procedures carry inherent risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and anesthesia-related complications.
3. Longer Recovery Time
Recovery from surgery can take weeks to months, during which patients may need to limit physical activity, take time off work, and avoid certain activities.
Surgical procedures typically result in some degree of scarring, which may be visible depending on the location of incisions and individual healing factors.
Facelift without surgery
If you are not willing to go under the knife, here are some common non-surgical treatment alternatives for achieving a facelift-like effect:
These neurotoxin injections can temporarily relax the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and fine lines, particularly on the forehead and around the eyes. They can provide a smoother, more youthful appearance.
A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure in which dissolvable threads are inserted beneath the skin to lift and tighten sagging tissue. It can provide a subtle lifting effect without surgery.
Chemical peels use chemical solutions to remove the top layer of skin, leading to improved skin texture, reduced fine lines, and a more youthful glow.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face are very effective non-surgical methods for enhancing your unique features and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
