Every single person on the planet is going to get old. It’s not the most comforting thing to think about, but it is a harsh reality. When a person is in their early twenties, aging is the last thing they think about. They might see photographs of their parents or their grandparents when they were younger and intellectually understand that one day they will get old. However, emotionally, they feel like they are going to be young forever.
Once a person starts to hit their thirties or forties, they begin to see some drastic changes in their appearance connected to age. Most people do not like the way this change makes them look or feel. So, they start to look for cosmetic alternatives to help them hold on to what is left of their youthful appearance.
Most will start with some type of non-surgical procedure. While non-surgical procedures can be effective, you may still reach a point where they are not enough, and you need something more.
This is when people start to think about surgical procedures, such as a facelift. This procedure can be done on the upper face, the mid-face or the lower part of the face and neck. Since what makes a person look old varies from individual to individual, our plastic surgeon would have to examine the person’s face as well as their goals and determine based on those two things which type of facelift they would need.
Researchers conclude that individuals who have a facelift can expect to look between seven and eight years younger. When a facelift is done well, a person is going to look younger, but they will not look unnatural. And that is what most people want from their facelift. They do not want to look like they did when they were 20. They are just not ready to look like a 40-year-old or a 50-year-old. They want to look like the best version of themselves possible. They want to look rejuvenated, they want to look refreshed and they do not want to look tired.
