In the past few years, looks have become an important factor for Singaporeans. They see it as a way of socializing with others. From young to old, everyone seems to have become conscious of how they look. For this reason, the cosmetic industry in Singapore has witnessed a boom. One of the most common cosmetic procedures is known as facial rejuvenation or facelift. It has been used by many people over the last couple of years, in order to achieve a young and youthful look. A lot of research has gone into developing the technique and a wide range of facelift options is available today. Here is a list of 5 common facelifts Singapore and its people have become most fond of in recent years.
1. Thread lifts
Thread lifts are another method that is gaining popularity in Singapore. A thread lift procedure involves the use of thread materials that are used in stitches during surgery. The threads are placed under the skin and are used to tighten the region around the face and neck.
The S-Lift procedure is usually done on the lower part of the face – the neck and jawline. The name comes from the S-shaped incision that the surgeon makes in order to separate the upper layer of the skin from the underlying tissues. The muscles and tissue are then tightened to give the face a slimmer look. The jawline and neck becomes more expressive and the face looks younger overall. The procedure is minimally invasive and therefore preferred by many over the other traditional surgery techniques.
3. Skin Only Lift
Cutaneous or skin only lifts are done in the lower facial region and the neck. The procedure involves small incisions around the ear that allows surgeons to dissect the skin from the underlying muscles. Excess skin is stretched and the remaining part is stretched to the incision point before it is closed. This form of muscle tightening technique provides a more youthful look to the patient’s face.
4. MACS Lift
The MACS and the Quicklift are modified procedures based on the S-Lift technique. The only difference is that the MACS Lift procedure requires more time than the S-Lift. But the results are more dramatic and that is what makes it a good option for candidates with minor facial aging.
5. subperiosteal facelift
The subperiosteal facelift treats the soft tissues in the face and uplifts the skin to provide a rejuvenated and younger look.
The different types of facelift procedures available are gaining worldwide popularity and are used by a number of young and old people to tighten their skin.
