Keeping yourself looking and feeling young, vibrant, and energetic is no easy task, but it is well worth the effort. From having a more positive body image and peace of mind to being able to live the confident life that you were born to, there are a lot of benefits. However, life has a way of challenging folks, and that can begin to wear on people as they age, especially around the face. Thankfully, for those whose faces are prime for a complete rejuvenation, there is the much-beloved facelift.
A facelift is capable of returning your facial skin to a more youthful and taut look that may have been lost naturally over time. Facelift surgery may be right for you if:
You’ve Noticed a Decrease in Face Volume
Your face naturally loses volume over the years due to the breakdown of collagen that occurs under your skin. However, when this happens or how quickly it happens depends on a variety of factors.
As the name alone suggests, a facelift serves to restore the volume your face naturally holds when you’re younger. It can even be used if the balance of fat around your face has shifted in an unwanted way with age.
You’ve Found an Increase or Prominence of Deeper Wrinkles
Often, in conjunction with a loss of facial volume will come an exacerbation of any facial wrinkles you may have. This can cause the wrinkles to become deeper and more noticeable, making what were previously only dynamic wrinkles into static and ever-present wrinkles on your face. By lifting the skin, a facelift can smooth out those wrinkles and return a younger look to your face.
You’ve Begun to Develop Neck Drooping or Jowls
A facelift can also help to address any issues you may be experiencing below your face around the neck or jawline. Though a facelift may help with sagging along the neck itself, it is most commonly directed towards correcting jowls. Jowls are loose and sagging skin that hangs from your jawline as a result of age, sun damage, or years of smoking.
