If you have ever looked at before and after photographs of people who have had a facelift performed, you understand how the procedure can completely transform their appearance. Since techniques and tools used for this procedure have advanced so much, patients are able to enjoy better results today than ever before.
There are many things to consider when deciding if a facelift is right for you. For example, the best candidates for this procedure are those who understand and are comfortable with the fact that their results will last a very long time. This means that you have to take a lot of time to make sure that you are ready to go through a surgical procedure in order to improve your appearance.
One thing that is especially important for all our facelift patients is that they are undergoing the procedure because they want to improve their own appearance. This is not something that a person should consider because someone else is putting pressure on them. You are much more likely to love your results when you undergo cosmetic surgery for no one’s benefit but your own. In addition, you should understand that this is not going to change who you are. It is simply going to improve your appearance and help you look a little bit younger.
There is no specific age limit for an individual when it comes to getting a facelift. However, we do find that many patients feel the most satisfied after they have used and exhausted non-surgical treatments. At this point, a more involved procedure may be necessary to help them deal with sagging skin, wrinkles, and the other issues that facelifts are designed to fix.
While a facelift is personalized to each patient’s needs, the process generally consists of removing loose, excess skin from the face. Depending on your goals, our surgeon may also reposition the underlying fat and muscle to further enhance your results.
