As you grow older, you will start to develop harsh wrinkles and fine lines throughout your entire facial region. These issues will become accelerated if you live a poor lifestyle, are constantly stressed, or if you are exposed to the harmful pollutants in the environment.

There’s only so much that you can do on your own to remedy this problem, but without the right help, it will become a lasting issue. Fortunately, there’s a solution for those who struggle with the early signs of aging and that is through a facelift.

A facelift is a popular form of plastic surgery that can help rejuvenate your face by eliminating the early signs of aging such as wrinkles, deep fine lines, jowls, and loose skin. It will help you reclaim the youthful glow you had in your younger years and help build your confidence levels.

The Facelift Procedure

There are different facelift techniques available depending on the amount of correction you require. There’s the tradition facelift for those who require extensive corrections and the mid-facelift for those who only need correction in the mid-region of the face. You can talk to your doctor about each type and come up with the ideal solution based on your specific needs.

During the traditional facelift procedure, your doctor will make incisions in hairline that can extend behind the ears. Through the incision, your doctor will remove any excess tissue and work to redefine the contours of your facial aesthetic. This may involve redistributing fat and other tissues and tightening remaining skin to fit the new contours of your face.

When the procedure is complete, your doctor will close the incisions with sutures. You can expect to have some swelling in the treatment area, but that is expected to subside in time. You will need to take some time off work to rest and relax during the recovery period.

The Benefits of a Facelift

The results provided by a facelift can be dramatic and long-lasting. Many have reported results that have lasted for years. The treatment can provide you with a significant boost in your aesthetic appeal.

Not only will your skin look smoother and more youthful, you’ll also feel more confident in your look. This confidence can positively impact every aspect of your life.

Factors to Consider Before the Surgery

There’s no one size fits all solution to everyone’s cosmetic problems. That’s why a facelift is customized to fit the needs of each individual patient depending on their specific needs. If you wish to undergo the surgery, however, there are several factors to consider before you can go through the surgery.

Your doctor will provide you with instructions that you will need to follow before the surgery begins. These instructions may include stopping the use of certain medications, alcohol, and tobacco a few weeks before the surgery. You will also need to provide your full-medical history before the procedure begins.
