How Does an Asian Facelift Differ From A Standard Facelift?
As we age, our skin tends to wrinkle and sag. However, different ethnicities have different needs when it comes to facelifts. People of Asian descent have thicker and denser facial skin, which requires a different technique than a standard facelift. An Asian facelift focuses on the drooping muscles of the face and neck.
The deep facelift approach that Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang uses at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery has been more successful in reaching the buccal fat pads of the cheeks, which are usually larger on Asian faces. To learn more about the differences between a standard and Asian facelift, call our Atlanta, GA office to schedule an in-person or online consultation. The Asian facelift procedure is a cosmetic surgical procedure that Dr. Mang performs to reverse the signs of facial aging in Asian patients.
Am I a candidate for an Asian facelift?
If you are of Asian descent and have noticed that your face is starting to look tired or is showing signs of aging, a facelift may help. If you are experiencing drooping or sagging skin, a facelift can rejuvenate your skin and give you a more refreshed and glowing appearance.
The best candidate for an Asian facelift is someone:
In good physical health
Who doesn’t smoke
Has realistic expectations
Has Asian ethnicity
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang and his team offer Asian facelifts to help patients achieve a youthful appearance while focusing on what will specifically help results last the longest.
What does an Asian facelift do?
Dr. Mang is highly skilled and educated in the ethnic differences of the Asian facial structure. While relaxing in one of our comfortable private procedure rooms, Dr. Mang will perform your facelift. He usually will use the deeper approach to your facelift to ensure he addresses your thick and heavy skin. This also allows him to be able to access your buccal fat pads. Depending on your needs, your facelift could even extend into your neck where the fat is contoured there too. The difference between an Asian and a standard facelift is that it goes deeper into the skin to address the more thick and dense skin that most Asian patients have.
Asian facelift recovery
As with all surgeries, recovery time will vary for each patient. Most patients can return to their normal daily activities in 7 – 10 days. You will have bruising and swelling, and some patients even experience some numbness near their incision sites. These side effects will go away on their own pretty quickly. This is all normal and should disappear as you continue to heal. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will give you at-home care instructions and set up any follow-up appointments that you need.
