The face is the most recognizable part of your body. You look at it in the mirror every day and people look you in the face in every conversation you have. So shouldn’t you be happy with the appearance of your face? Unfortunately, the face is also the part of the body that shows the first and most obvious signs of aging. Time, sun and gravity can take a toll on your face, causing wrinkles, sagging and drooping. However, a facelift can reverse all of these signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance. Here are three facelift facts you should know if you’re considering the procedure.
Have you been considering a facelift? After a certain age, skin cream and products can only do so much. Because it’s a surgical procedure, deciding to have a facelift is a big decision. Talking about it with friends, family, or your plastic surgeon may help, but here are 4 signs it might be time for a facelift:
- You’re generally unhappy with your appearance. Yes, cosmetic surgery can help you look younger – but its main goal is to help you feel more confident. Avoiding mirrors, photos, or events because you’re self-conscious about your appearance may mean it’s time for a facelift. This procedure can give you a healthy boost of confidence.
- Skincare products or procedures such as creams, collagen injections, and chemical appeals have begun to lose their appeal. If the smaller, less intense products are not making a difference anymore, you may need to consider a more permanent and intense facial rejuvenation procedure.
- Deep lines and wrinkles are beginning to set in. Some lines and creases are too deep to remove with creams or non-surgical procedures. If deep lines and wrinkles are bothering you, a facelift may be the only way to remove them.
- Your skin, regardless of age or previous plastic surgery, is beginning to sag. The skin loses elasticity as it ages. Full facelifts can help rejuvenate sagging eyelids, cheeks, and jowls. Patients experience better results when they undergo a facelift before too much of the skin sags.
