Laura Livesey: That’s a huge benefit. It sounds like people are coming to you for that natural feeling.
Mrinal Supriya: Absolutely. That is the way things stand. As a rule of thumb, if you are above the age of 40 – 45, and you have noticed physical changes on your face, like losing the definition between your face and your neck, or the jawline becoming less distinct, you are a candidate for a deep plane facelift.
If you go for other kinds of surgery in the belief that they are less invasive, will be much quicker, with a quicker recovery, a few months down the line, you will end up where you were, if not worse than where you were.
You will most probably regret your decision of not having the correct surgery.
All of these physical changes have a positive impact on your mindset. Their confidence, their self-awareness, are improved once we address the physical changes. There would be a particular group of patients who would also benefit from a forehead lift, which is done endoscopically and repositions your eyebrow. And it can also be combined with eyelid surgery, so that overall, the ageing changes in terms of a droopy eyebrow, droopy cheeks, jaws, or droopy tissues in your neck, are all addressed at the same time. And you end up feeling a much more rejuvenated yourself after the surgery.
