Facelifts can be a good option for individuals who are searching for a way to regain the youthful, energized appearance of prior years and erase marionette lines around the mouth, loose skin around theneck and jowling along the jaw.
So how do you know if it's the right time to take the leap? Here are some things to keep in mind:
- You have an experienced surgeon: Do some research to find a surgeon who you're comfortable working with and has a strong reputation. It's important to have a thorough consultation with your doctor, which will include an examination of your bone structure and skin type and a discussion about your medical history.
- You're a man looking for a younger appearance: Facelifts are a very popular procedure for both men and women. Although women's scars can sometimes be hidden more easily in their hairline, a surgeon with expertise in facial procedures can usually conceal the samescars on men as well.
- You're doing it for the right reasons: Cosmetic procedures are great for restoring self-confidence and enhancing your looks. However, it's important to understand the limits of plastic surgery — a facelift can reduce signs of aging that have already occurred, but it can't prevent further aging. Make your final decision with the help of a board certified facial plastic surgeon so you know what to expect.
- You want a self-confidence boost: Aging is inevitable, but that doesn't mean you have to embrace it wholeheartedly. If you're looking for a way to appear younger and improve your self-esteem then a facelift could be a good move for you.
