Signs That a Facelift Is Right for You
By Michael A. Devlin, MD on June 13, 2019
If you want to look young and rejuvenated, there are plenty of options worth considering. Dr. Michael A. Devlin offers patients the latest in facial rejuvenation at his Little Rock, AR practice, including cosmetic injectables and reliable facial plastic surgery procedures such as the traditional facelift. During the consultation process, we walk each patient through their options to make sure they get the treatment that’s best for their needs.
The team at Devlin Cosmetic Surgery would like to take a moment to discuss some signs that a facelift is right for you and your needs. This will help you determine whether or not a facelift is ideal for you.
You’d Prefer a More Permanent Facial Rejuvenation Solution
As trends and statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveal, more people are turning to BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers for anti-aging treatment. These are effective options for fighting wrinkles and signs of age, but they offer only temporary results that last about six months. Repeated injection treatments are required to prolong the anti-aging benefits.
One of the key sings you’re ready for a facelift is that you want lasting benefits of anti-aging treatment. That’s only possible for facial plastic surgery procedures such as the facelift.
You’re an Ideal Age for Facial Rejuvenation Surgery
Age plays a factor on many patients’ decisions to finally get a facelift. Most people who get facelifts tend to be in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. At these ages, the sagging and drooping of advanced age becomes more pronounced, and facial cosmetic surgery is an ideal way to address these issues.
You Have Wrinkles and Sagging Around the Mid-Face
The facelift is a great option for treating problems located around the middle portion of the face. That makes it a great surgery for people who suffer from the following cosmetic issues:
- Loose skin around the upper cheeks
- Sagging and lines around the eyes
- Heavy jowls forming around the cheek area
Thanks to the tightening and pulling of a facelift, these signs of age can be reversed.
You’re in Good Overall Health
It’s important that you be in good overall health before undergoing facial rejuvenation surgery. You should not suffer from medical conditions that could result in health problems if you undergo a facelift. The team at our Little Rock plastic surgery center can go over these issues during the consultation process.
You Understand the Risks and Benefits of Surgery
As with any surgical procedure, it’s crucial that all patients be aware of the risks and benefits associated with the surgery. This gives the patient realistic expectations about the outcomes of surgery, and a better understanding of the post-op process. By weighing the benefits and risks, you can make a much more confident choice about getting a facelift.
You’ve Weighed All of Your Options
Even if you’re the right age and have the right mindset, you may want to consider your other options for facial rejuvenation one last time. If you still feel that a facelift is the right option for you after reconsidering cosmetic injectables and skin care treatments, then you should schedule a consultation at our practice.
