Enhancing Facial Harmony - Exploring the Combined Benefits of Facelift and Rhinoplasty

Learn how to boost your confidence and achieve facial harmony.

POSTED BY ANNA GRAHAM

Facial harmony refers to the harmonious alignment and proportioning of various facial features. Ancient Greeks as well as Renaissance artists like Leonardo da Vinci have studied this concept extensively.

Reducing facial disharmonies to achieve effortless beauty can be achieved through facial harmonization techniques, including non-surgical cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and Botox or surgical interventions such as rhinoplasty and jawline contouring.

1. Increased Self-Esteem

Facial discord can wreak havoc on one's self-esteem, particularly if due to facial asymmetry. Luckily, skilled professionals have many techniques for improving facial harmony such as rhinoplasty, chin implants and jawline contouring - each face being unique, so personalizing approaches for maximum effectiveness are necessary for the best outcomes.

Ancient Greek and Renaissance artists excelled at finding ideal proportions, from architecture to facial features. Yet despite our tireless pursuit of facial harmony's perfect combination, some individuals still struggle to attain an aesthetic look that is in balance.

Balance can be achieved using both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as liquid nose jobs, uses dermal fillers injected directly into facial muscles in order to reshape and contour your nose without leaving an unnatural look and feel behind - unlike more invasive techniques which could leave you looking overdone.

3. Reduced Stress

Rhinoplasty is a facial surgery procedure that improves facial balance and harmony by changing the proportions of your nose. Rhinoplasty may even eliminate or lessen the need for facelift surgery altogether; in fact, many surgeons combine rhinoplasty with facelifting in order to achieve maximum rejuvenation results for their patient's facial features.

An effective surgical facelift involves manipulating the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) in the middle of the face through either plication or imbrication of its SMAS layer, in order to reposition platysma muscle and address laxity in neck soft tissues, jowls, melolabial folds, and platysmal banding.

A skin-only facelift focuses solely on lifting skin in the neck and midface area; however, this does not address jowls or melolabial folds which require deeper plane or composite facelift techniques to address. These involve dissecting zygomaticus muscles and ligaments in order to free cheek fat and muscles from bone implants in their bodies.

4. Increased Confidence

As soon as you look in the mirror and recognize a more youthful and refreshed version of yourself, your confidence naturally skyrockets - this can have a ripple effect throughout all aspects of life, such as nailing that job interview or impressing during that big presentation at work.

Undergoing a facelift requires using surgical skill and experience to achieve natural-looking results, with incisions placed behind ears or along hairlines in a discreet fashion - so no one is likely to detect that any cosmetic treatment was undertaken.

Who Should Consider a Mini Facelift? Those suffering from mild to moderate jowling and neck skin sagging could benefit from a mini facelift, which tightens deep facial tissues through shorter incisions made within natural creases around their ears to restore a more defined and youthful appearance without needing a full-facial lift.
