Heard of the Golf Course Face Lift?
Dr. Balogun was an article titled “What is a golf course face lift and read on to see what it was all about.
If you are someone who spends a lot of time outside, and noticing UV exposure related aging skin changes, the “golf course face lift” maybe for you. Dr. Halley-Stott, based in South Africa, spoke of the procedure he specializes in, that address the relatively inelastic, sun exposed skin of folks like golfers, runners, and other outdoors men and women.
Turns out, the golf course face lift is a comprehensive face lift by a cooler, more contemporary name. Like a comprehensive face lift, the goal of a golf course facelift is to address age-related and sun-related skin and soft tissue changes of the face and neck. The face lift may include a forehead lift and neck lift as indicated. In addition, a fat transfer is included to address facial volume loss, after which the whole face (including eyelids) and neck are treated with fractional carbon dioxide laser, to address rough texture, age spots, freckles and fine lines.
After everything heals and new collagen growth has leveled off, about five to six months, you are left with balanced, rejuvenated face and neck.
While surgical face and neck rejuvenation is the gold standard, the trend has decidedly shifted to multimodality, non-surgical face and neck rejuvenation, where men and women can have non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures like Botox, soft tissue fillers, peels, light, radiofrequency and laser treatments performed in-office, often without downtime or significant recovery. Procedures can be performed slowly and progressively or rapidly to yield best outcomes.
