A facelift is a great option to reduce the sings of aging. You can get a more youthful look and restore a reflection in the mirror that matches the way you feel inside — young at heart!
We all feel more confident and outgoing when we are happy about the way we look. A facelift can help you lift the way you feel about yourself. It’s not just for women, either. Men need a lift every now and then, too.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reports that over a 5-year period beginning in 2010, facelifts for men have increased by 44 percent.
Facelifts provide a way to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. The surgical procedure removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and re-drapes skin on the face and neck.
A facelift can correct sagging in the middle of the face, deep creases along the nose and below the eyelids, and loose skin under the chin and jaw. You can thank heredity, gravity and stress for those wrinkles. Skin can lose its elasticity.
Why consider a facelift?
There are many reasons you may want to consider a facelift. You may look into the mirror and see a reflection that does not reflect how you see yourself or how you feel inside. Your appearance may make you feel self-conscious in your social life or career.
A facelift can improve many areas of the face in one surgery and is able to re-contour the neck and jawline better than most other techniques. The results can last for 10 or more years and can help make you appear 10 to 15 years younger. A good candidate is someone who is in good health and has realistic expectations about the outcome.
Before considering a facelift, it is important to remember it will not create a new appearance, just a younger version of yourself. The procedure is surgical, so there will be recovery time. Consult a doctor experienced in this area to discuss what is best for you and what results you should expect. You can schedule a complementary consultation or call (239) 900-9640.
