It can be frustrating to look in the mirror and see a face looking back at you that does not accurately reflect the way that you feel about yourself. The face looking back at you may look sad, drawn out and older. You may have a lot of people mistakenly think that you are a lot older than what you really are. All of these things can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. When your self-esteem is low and when your confidence is low, your ability to accomplish even the simplest things is greatly diminished.
After trying non-surgical cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of their face, many people reach a point where they realize that the only way they’re going to get the look they want is through surgery. One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries is a facelift.
In the most basic of terms, during a facelift, our surgeon is going to get rid of the extra skin around your face. He is going to tighten the skin, which will leave it looking smooth. His goal is to make the patient look younger without making them looked worked on. When this is accomplished, a patient will feel an increase in self-esteem and confidence.
Most people begin to think about having a facelift between the ages of 40 and 70. Both men and women can be candidates. The best results come to candidates who have good skin elasticity, a defined bone structure and loose skin on their face that needs to be tightened up. Most people will get a facelift because of the effects that gravity and loss of facial volume, as well as sun exposure, have on their appearance. When gravity and the sun begin to affect the elasticity of our face, the skin starts to sag. And while there are non-surgical procedures that can be used to slightly address this problem, none of them can produce results that compare to what you will get from a facelift.
Some patients will combine a facelift with other facial cosmetic surgical procedures. Facelift surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Facelifts can be performed in different parts of the face and to different degrees. All of this will be determined by you and our team.
When a person gets to the point where they are considering a facelift, it means that their appearance has had a drastic negative effect on their self-esteem. A facelift is an excellent way to help a person get their sense of competence back. It allows a person to engage in business, personal relationships and other activities in life with a zeal and energy that they may not have had previously.
