Corona Plastic Surgeon Explains Attributes of Potential Facelift Candidates

Dr. Christopher Chung Describes Differences Between Chronologic and Anatomic Age Regarding Necessity for Surgical Facelift Versus Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatments

CORONA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) - Facelift procedures are designed to diminish or eliminate the deep wrinkles, excess skin, and sagging jaw line that are common signs of aging, explains Dr. Christopher Chung, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Corona. Some patients are under the impression there is a specific age to start considering a surgical facial rejuvenation procedure such as a facelift, he says, but everyone experiences age-related changes at a different rate. According to Dr. Chung, determining whether patients will benefit most from less-invasive injectable cosmetic enhancements or surgical restoration can often be established by analyzing anatomic indicators.

In a recent blog post titled, "Age Is Just a Number: Determining if Facelift Is the Right Option," Dr. Chung clarifies the difference between physical and physiologic age, explaining that many patients at his Corona plastic surgery practice believe maturity necessitates a specific procedure. Rather, "In order to consider surgical options, there has to be enough anatomic need," he moderates. Excess sun exposure, smoking, and genetic predisposition may cause some patients to appear older than they feel, he notes.

In a subsequent blog post titled, "Restore Youthful Appearance With Natural-Looking Facelift," Dr. Chung explores another common concern of potential facelift patients: a natural-looking result. Utilizing an enhanced technique designed to reposition the musculo-fascial (SMAS) and fatty tissues located beneath the skin, patients can often experience impressive results without the artificial effect typical with some other methods, he asserts. Facial rejuvenation procedures he offers include:

Ultimately, Dr. Chung provides several facial rejuvenation options to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals, maintaining an emphasis on customized treatment plans and a natural-looking outcome.
