The 3 biggest motivators for most people
If you’ve been thinking about getting “something done” for a while –– perhaps even years –– you’re not alone. Although you might have some very personal reasons for wanting to improve your looks, there are a few overarching feelings that motivate most people to finally move forward with facial rejuvenation, whether the treatment they have is a facelift/neck lift, eyelid lift, brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers, or a combination of these procedures.
#1: “I’m tired of looking older than I feel.”
You are full of energy, you eat healthy and get regular exercise, you stay current in your attitude, interests, hair and wardrobe and yet, you look in the mirror and your face and neck don’t match how you feel otherwise. Welcome to the current generation of Boomers. Busy, involved, more physically fit than our parents at our age, and many of us still working well into our 70s, we want to look like the vibrant person we are inside. However, years of “living life”, stress, sun damage, and smoking can leave us with lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and sagging skin in our face and neck, all of which make us look older than we are and definitely older than we feel.
#2: “I want to look my best for an upcoming event (wedding, anniversary, reunion).
You’re planning the wedding of a son or daughter. You’re weeks/months away from a special anniversary. Your high school or college reunion is fast approaching. Whatever the event, you want to look your absolute best –– not only for the compliments but also for the photos that will be around for generations to come.
#3: “I’m so unhappy with how I look, it’s affecting my self-confidence, my desire to go out socially, and my performance at work.”
Aging can have an impact beyond our physical appearance; it can rob us of our self-confidence to the point of making us want to withdraw from friends and family, stay in, and lose our zest for life, work and fun. Because most of us were brought up to think that caring too much about our looks is being vain and an emotion to be ignored, we let the negative feelings we have about our appearance grow and only worsen over time.
On the flip side of these three common motivators are the happiness, self-assuredness and new lease on life that come with turning back the clock and enjoying the remarkable results of facial rejuvenation. “The goal of facial rejuvenation procedures is not to look 25 again, but to look your very best for your age,” says Dr. Robert J. Smyth, facial cosmetic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation of the face and neck. “The goal is the natural, refreshed, alive look that has friends and family wondering why you look so good and has you feeling great about yourself.”
