As you age, your overall appearance changes. At first, these changes may appear subtly. Then they reach a tipping point where the aging process completely and totally dominates your appearance. A facelift is designed to give you back your youthful appearance. It reverses some of the effects that aging has on your face. There are multiple signs of aging that can be effectively addressed with this procedure.
Loose skin usually builds up around your face and your jaw. As this happens, your chin and the rest of your face takes on a droopy appearance. It can even take on a semi-weathered look. A facelift is designed to get rid of all of the excess skin and fat. Its purpose is to give you a smooth and tight appearance on your face. The results are not just superficial. A facelift can be effectively used to give your face a rejuvenated appearance.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Good candidates can be different ages. Facelifts can be performed on men and women. Because of the structure of the muscles and the skin on men, a male facelift can be a little bit more complex. The best candidate for a facelift is a person who has elastic skin. The better defined your bone structure is, the better the end results will be. You will see the most positive results if you have loose skin on your neck and your face that you want to tighten up. Of course, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation with our surgeon.
Why People Need a Facelift
There are so many factors that can affect our facial skin’s appearance. We have gravity, stress, and environmental factors. The sun is another thing that takes a toll on your face. As your skin loses its elasticity, it loses its ability to stand up to the forces that gravity and the environment take on it.
Most people are happy with the results they receive from a facelift. This procedure has the potential to take up to 10 years off your appearance and can produce results that can last for many years.
