If your cheeks are beginning to descend, and you have jowls and deep creases, you can refresh your face with a facelift. A well-done facelift enhances your natural beauty, making you look younger but not different. So when you decide to get a facelift be sure to choose an experienced plastic surgeon with appropriate credentials, and a track record of producing natural looking results.
You may want to consider getting a facelift if:
- Your face makes you look older than you are. The skin on the face and neck often starts to sag by the age of 40. This is due to the effects of gravity, as well as loss of skin elasticity that causes skin to develop wrinkles, creases, and folds that make you look old. The process can be accelerated by genes, as well as exposure to sun. Plastic surgeons recommend that a facelift be done at an earlier age when the skin has greater elasticity.
- You are in good physical and emotional shape. It’s important to ensure that you do not have any underlying physical conditions that would prevent you from having a facelift. Also, be sure that it is something you are willing to commit to, and you are realistic about the results of surgery.
Having said that, you should never feel pressured or rushed into making the decision to have a facelift. Make sure you know the features you would like changed, and why you want to change them. Remember that plastic surgery should be about meeting your specific aesthetic goals and objectives.
