Ponytail Lift (Scarless Endoscopic Facelift)

What is a ponytail facelift?

Here we reveal information about the innovative lifting procedure or ponytail faceft in Madrid and Valencia (Endoscopic Facelift without visible scars) performed by Dr. Villamarín.

It is a comprehensive facelift procedure that attempts to minimize incisions and make them invisible. It is the least invasive degree of facelift with surgery (microlifting or micro facelift). It is especially designed for younger patients with mild sagging changes in the eyebrows, face and neck, minimal distention with minimal excess skin. Here are the main benefits of this advanced technique:

  • Refresh or transform your face (and with extension to the neck if necessary) through minimal and invisible incisions.
  • Long-lasting and natural results.
  • Procedure usually outpatient and under local anesthesia with sedation.
  • Sculpt the eyebrows by rotating and without overlifting, to obtain natural results and avoid the scared look.
  • It usually includes eyelid (gaze) surgery to obtain more beautiful results and refresh the look.
  • It may include endoscopic neck lift surgery to improve the appearance of the neck while eliminating a double chin.
  • Minimal and hidden incisions, without distortion of the hairline or the natural anatomy of the ear, so the tragus of the ear (pinna) is not altered.
  • Minimal invasion (keyhole or endoscopic facelift surgery) with this technique, since Dr. Villamarín keeps the skin and fat layers together, so that they remain healthy and oxygenated, and thus achieve youthful and vital-looking skin after surgery.
  • Faster recovery time and less inflammation, usually.
  • It usually includes a facial rejuvenation technique with regenerative cells, to add youthful fullness, also preventing the haggard and hollow appearance for many years.
  • Refresh your natural beauty with a more youthful appearance.

The absence of visible scars, especially when clearing the hair from the ears with the high ponytail hairstyle, and the directional continuity of the almost vertical vectors of elevation of the eyebrows, cheeks and rest of the face, consistent With the style of this hairstyle, they produce a glamorous effect on the facial appearance and gaze that has made this technique popular in recent times.

Am I a good candidate for ponytail facelift in Madrid and Valencia?

Dr. Villamarín will study each case to decide if the patient may be an ideal candidate for this less invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia, in order to achieve excellent results.

Candidates for a ponytail or facelift procedure should also be in good general health, have mild facial aging changes, and have realistic expectations. They should not suffer from skin, infectious, immune diseases, hypertension or uncontrolled diabetes. It is strongly recommended not to smoke from 1 month before surgery to 1 month after surgery. The patient must not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

Dr. Villamarín will meet with each patient individually to determine if they may benefit from a ponytail facelift. During this consultation, a thorough examination of the forehead, face and neck in general will be carried out. The objectives, benefits, results and alternatives without surgery will be discussed with Dr. Villamarín and then he will design a detailed and adapted treatment plan or tailor made for each patient. In the case of surgery, a preoperative procedure will be ordered and postoperative recommendations will be provided in accordance with the protocol for said procedure.

The ponytail facelift procedure in Madrid and Valencia

There are some variations of the procedure. As a microsurgeon, Dr. Villamarín prefers to use a closed approach, usually endoscopic with 1 or 2 small hidden microincisions (depending on each case) and therefore invisible, all of which is usually combined with centrofacial lipofilling. With this, we raise the eyebrows, the lateral periocular region, the cheeks, and slight falls in the jaw and neck area. Age, sex, type of problem and associated problems, as well as some other parameters, are key in deciding which technique to use. In some cases it can be combined with platysmaplasty, mentoplasty, lip lift or blepharoplasty Dr. Villamarín Madrid and Valencia.

The passing of the years produces progressive changes in the forehead and eyebrows, face and neck. When the disorder affects the entire face and neck, a global lifting and volumizing approach is best. The fewer changes there are, the less surgical invasiveness that Dr. Villamarín uses to solve it, both without surgery and with surgery. If the changes can no longer or must be fixed without surgery, or the patient desires a permanent solution, surgery is recommended. A ponytail facelift is recommended as a first step for minor changes in the face. For more important aging changes, a mini facelift or a standard facelift and necklift is recommended.
