Age is indeed just a number. If you’re still feeling young but the calendar says otherwise, you can still look the part because there are options to erase the years of your face. Thanks to technological advancements, supple skin without wrinkles is within easy reach. Consider these four reasons to undergo a facelift as it might be the right choice for enhancing your appearance.
The number one reason to undergo a facelift is because it creates smoother skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. A facelift tightens your skin and eliminates sagging. It removes your crow’s feet and laugh lines. It also reduces the droop of your cheeks around the jaw area and under the chin. This treatment lives up to its name by giving your face an instant lift, resulting in a younger, more flawless version of yourself.
Since a facelift erases deep wrinkles, you can face the world with more confidence. As you age, it is reasonable to lose muscle tone and elasticity in your face. These make you look old, tired, and haggard. When you remove these jowls and deep creases, you feel good about yourself. As the saying goes, when you look good, you also feel good. Getting through your days become so much easier when you have a positive disposition.
There are different types of facelift procedures available depending on your budget, desired results, and pain tolerance level. There is a more aggressive standard, full facelift that requires deep incisions to remove excess skin, tighten connective tissues, and lift to reposition. There is also a milder mini facelift for those who want a small rejuvenation. The incisions are shorter, so the recovery time is much faster. Finally, you can also try a short scar facelift, which is a mini facelift variation. However, this only addresses the face and not the neck. It does leave fewer scars and has a relatively swift recovery period.
Unlike in the olden days when people would hide their procedures, it is now more socially acceptable to get surgery. In fact, many people post online their before and after results on social media. With less stigma surrounding cosmetic surgery, there is no longer any need to feel embarrassed or ashamed for wanting to improve yourself. Everyone understands the value of self-love because the only way to love others well is if you love yourself first.
