Today, you have more beauty options than ever before. There are laser treatments, injections, and traditional surgery.

The sheer number of options available, though, especially when it comes to facelifts, has led to some misconceptions and confusion.

Below is our list of 4 common facelift misconceptions debunked.

Myth: Facelifts Look Fake

The media loves to report bad plastic surgery. You’ve most likely seen botched facelifts in the tabloids or on TV. Many of those cases revolve around people who wanted unnatural results and underwent several surgical procedures, often against the judgment of their surgeons.

A properly performed facelift procedure, done by an experienced plastic surgeon, is not overtly noticeable and will not look unnatural. Board certified surgeons strive to create vibrant, youthful results without giving away your surgery secrets.

Myth: You Have to Be Older to Have a Facelift

While it’s common for people in their 50s to 70s to consider a facelift to combat aggressive signs of aging, younger people are increasingly looking at options to maintain their youthful appearance. In fact, starting earlier may lead to optimal results since there’s potentially less work involved to try and turn back time.

What’s more, everybody’s skin is different and ages differently. So, there is no ideal age for a facelift.

Myth: A Facelift Is So Obvious

If you use a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon, your face won’t look like it’s been worked on at all once you’ve recovered. Some people think that a facelift is all about tightening your face until it looks “frozen” and “plastic.” This couldn’t be further from the truth.

When you take good care of your skin, maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, and avoid unhealthy habits, you will enjoy the results of your facelift for years to come.

The best way to decide whether or not a facelift is the right choice for you is to consult one of our physicians.
