If you’re dealing with significant skin laxity and facial wrinkles, you may consider undergoing facelift surgery to restore your youthful appearance. However, procedures like the traditional facelift and deep plane facelift are quite invasive, and you may prefer to avoid such major surgery. If that’s the case, one effective alternative that you may want to consider is the ponytail facelift in Dallas, a popular, less invasive facelift technique offered by Dr Evan Beale.
What Is a Ponytail Facelift?
A ponytail facelift is an alternative facelift technique known for being somewhat less invasive than traditional facelift methods. The ponytail facelift gets its name from its similarities to the process of putting your hair into a very high and tight ponytail. The procedure focuses primarily on the pulling of skin to achieve a more defined and youthful-looking facial appearance. Despite being less invasive than other facelift techniques, the ponytail facelift is known for providing major skin rejuvenation.
How Is a Ponytail Facelift Performed?
During a ponytail facelift, Dr Beale’s main goal is to lift the skin of the upper face, cheeks, and jowls, tightening loose facial skin and reducing the appearance of folds and creases. To begin the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions behind the ears, where any resulting scars will be completely hidden. Using an endoscope and suspension, Dr Beale then utilizes these incisions to pull the skin of the scalp and the face. The SMAS layer of connective tissue is also lifted during this facelift procedure, but it is not separated from the facial skin.
Benefits of the Ponytail Facelift
The ponytail facelift is an effective facelift procedure that can offer some or all of the following benefits:
- Creates smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking facial skin
- Tightens loose, sagging skin
- Less invasive than traditional facelift methods
- Smaller incisions than traditional facelift methods
- Any scarring is completely invisible
- Long-lasting results
- Provides the mid-face with significant lift
- Delays the need for a more invasive procedure
- Requires only local anesthesia
- Increased self-confidence
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
One of the nice things about the ponytail facelift is that it typically requires a shorter recovery period than other facelift procedures. For the first week, you’ll need to rest frequently, although you should start taking light walks as soon as you feel up to it. You should be able to resume your normal routine and return to work after about a week, but it’s best to refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least two to four weeks.
Am I a Candidate for a Ponytail Facelift?
Adults who are unsatisfied with their facial wrinkles and skin laxity could be good candidates for a ponytail facelift. To be an ideal candidate for the procedure, you should:
- Be in generally good physical health
- Have the desire for firmer, smoother facial skin
- Prefer to avoid a more invasive facelift procedure
- Have a decent amount of facial skin elasticity
- Have realistic expectations for the procedure
- Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Be a non-smoker
What Kind of Results Can I Expect From a Ponytail Facelift?
Typically, the results of your ponytail facelift in Dallas will appear gradually as the swelling and bruising subside and your skin settles into its new position. On average, it takes around a month to see the complete effects of the procedure, which should include firmer, more youthful-looking facial skin and significantly reduced mid-face skin laxity. You can generally expect the results of your ponytail facelift to last for approximately five to seven years.
