Yoga is awesome for building core muscle strength and also meditation. A recent local NBC report also proclaimed yoga benefits for facial muscles. The creator went as far as to quote “if you do the exercises every day for six months, you will look like you had a face lift,” without the surgery.
After decades in plastic surgery few claims(if any) made to consumers that a procedure , product ,or technique is “like plastic surgery” actually pan out to be the truth. Dr Kincaid has learned to take these stories tongue and cheek;however, he feels compelled to alert his patients of the truth so they are making intelligent decisions. Facial yoga no doubt has certain benefits. It should strengthen the muscles thus they feel tighter. Dr Kincaid points out- the problem with the promise of a result like a face lift is the excess skin. In patients with extreme sagging in the neck or jowl line the muscle will not be able to pull the excess skin. Like sagging in the breast area which requires a breast lift, or abdominal area which requires an abdominoplasty, excess skin can only be tightened by removing excess skin.
Facial yoga has it’s benefits and on a youthful face with minimal sagging it could possibly make a visible difference. A face lift is one of the best investments that a patient can make. The results last a lifetime
