All about Facelift Procedures

The face is one of the unique assets of a person. They give away our age, our lifestyle choices, and other personal information. We’ve all heard the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover,” unfortunately, physical appearance is important to humans. And as such some features are inclined to be considered attractive to individuals and cultures over other features.

Attractiveness also has consequences in society. It’s been scientifically proven that more attractive people lead more fulfilling lives and get more job offers. Next time someone gives you a tough time for having some surgical work done, rest assured, because it is a great investment: economically, romantically, and socially!

Who can Benefit from a Facelift?
With Hollywood and the beauty industry bombarding us with ideas of beauty and youth, it’s hard to remain positive about our outward appearance. Older people benefit the most from this cosmetic procedure since it combats the aging process, those stubborn deep lines, and the infamous turkey neck. Facelifts lift ages off your face.
If you’ve lost a great deal of weight and are plagued with obnoxious, excess, sagging skin, this procedure can benefit you too. You can get rid of the double chin you abhor or saggy cheeks. Or if you simply feel that your face doesn’t reflect how young you feel inside; a facelift can help make you look and feel younger.

What is a Facelift?
There are several types of lift surgeries that can be done on the face to combat different facial issues like check lifts or mini lifts. In general, a facelift reduces wrinkles and droopy excess skin on the face and neck. It does so by tightening the underlying muscles to position the skin higher. This is a procedure that is more invasive than Botox but also has exceptional results compared to Botox injections.

When is the Best Time to Schedule a Consultation?
For some, jowls begin to form in the jaws and cheeks early on, in their 30s and 40s. Others are lucky to have resilient skin, but for most aging signs really sink in around age 70. Most facelifts are performed on those in their 50’s and up however.  Whether you’re 30 or 70, in the end, only you can decide when you’re truly ready.
