Should I Get a Facelift?

The signs of aging can be a frustrating fact of life. For some, the gradual changes that take place are only mildly concerning. As we can see by observing statistics in plastic surgery and injectables, most people want some sense of control over how they age. One of the questions that gets asked over and over again is “should I get a facelift?” If you’re asking that, know that you are the only one who can answer it. However, you don’t have to make your decision without assistance. Here, we discuss two ways you can move closer to definite resolve about the timing of a facelift.

“I don’t look like myself anymore.”

When you look in the mirror, you think this to yourself? Maybe the lines and wrinkles around your eyes, nose, and mouth have become familiar and you hardly notice them anymore. What you see now, though, is a face that doesn’t look like it used to. This happens to many people and it relates to a combination of factors. With age, the skin becomes depleted of collagen because it is not making enough to replace what grows old and weak. This changes the firmness and elasticity of the skin, so it sags. The fat pads in the mid-face also deteriorate, causing the face to become less contoured and interesting. The jawline gets loose and saggy, too. So while you may see glimpses of yourself in your eyes, your face may be a different shape than it once was. A facelift can correct this, making you look about ten years younger by doing so.

You Need More Than What Injectables Offer

In recent years, injectables have all-but taken over the game of facial rejuvenation. There are several benefits gained by using products like Botox and dermal fillers to reduce the signs of aging. At the same time, it is important to know how they work and what their limitations are. The more volume that the face loses, the more difficult it is to restore it with injectables without making it look puffy and unnatural. Some people finally schedule their facelift when they find that they are needing more frequent injections or more units of product to maintain their results. In this case, a facelift resets the baseline. Surgery may not eliminate the benefits of future injectables but it certainly increases the success of such treatment.

Facelift surgery is popular because it achieves long-lasting results that make people look and feel like themselves again. If you’d like to feel this way, too, contact our Hazleton or Pottsville office to arrange your consultation.
