Avoiding the windswept look after a facelift
Question: How can I make sure that having a facelift will not give me a ‘wind swept’ look? Are there degrees of how tight the skin will be pulled?
Answer: This is a very common concern for many patients undergoing a facelift. The ‘wind swept’ look can be avoided if surgeon pulls the skin in a correction direction. Many believe that a ‘wind swept’ look is from too much skin removal. This is not necessarily true. What is most important is the direction and knowing where you can pull hard and where you should not. Please review our facelift before and after photo gallery for more information.
