Hint: It’s not just about your looks.
Is a facelift right for you? If you’re asking the question, it’s likely something about your face and/or neck area is bothering you enough to consider next steps. You’re not alone. After the age of 50 and sometimes even younger, most people see signs of facial aging that simply do not go away despite the use of creams, lotions, dermal fillers or Botox. At some point, the aging process and gravity win. No fillers or topical treatments can remove loose, sagging skin at the lower face and neck area. While some non-surgical techniques (CoolSculpting, Ultherapy, etc.) treat loose skin in these areas, the results are short term (months) compared to today’s minimally-invasive facelift that lasts on average five to 10 years (depending on sun exposure, smoking, healthy diet, genetics, etc.). Bottom line, only a facelift can produce the lasting results that most people desire.
If you think you might be ready for a facelift, the next step is to do your research and schedule a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified, facial cosmetic surgeon – ideally one who has performed thousands of facelifts and who knows how to deliver the refreshed, natural, “younger-you” look you want. Be sure to request before and after photos of the surgeon’s actual patients. You might also ask to speak to former patients. A qualified surgeon will be happy to provide you all of the information you need.
