How Do I Know If I’m Ready for a Facelift?

Many men and women are opting to get a facelift procedure at a younger age. The surgical procedure offers dramatic long-term results that other procedures simply can’t achieve. Any number of factors from genetics to lifestyle habits can adversely affect the way our skin ages. Only you can decide if you’re ready for a facelift, but there are a few clues that can help determine if you’re a good candidate.

You’ve Used Fillers Before

If you’ve previously used fillers or injectables to restore a youthful, vibrant facial appearance but are becoming increasingly less pleased with the results, it may be time to consider a facelift. While fillers can wipe away fine lines and wrinkles, a facelift will also reduce the appearance of loose, sagging skin and unwanted pockets of fat.

You Have Excess Skin

Facelifts are able to give you longer lasting results than other treatments as well. Excess skin is tightened and removed. Fat and muscle tissue can also be adjusted and repositioned to give a personalized look you’ll love. Fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin can all be treated with the facelift procedure.

It’s important to understand that a facelift is a surgical procedure that requires a decent amount of downtime. As swelling and bruising subside, you’ll see a fresher, rejuvenated you in the mirror. Clients who go into the facelift procedure with realistic expectations are more likely to achieve desired results.
