A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps rejuvenate one’s appearance and turn back the clock on aging. Facelifts achieve a more youthful and refreshed look by tightening facial tissues and removing excess skin. In the US alone, approximately 6000 facelift surgeries are performed annually, making it one of the most in-demand cosmetic procedures.

5 Areas a Facelift Can Target

There are several different facelift techniques that involve the removal of excess skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and tightening facial tissues. Some popular types of facelifts include liquid facelifts, jawline rejuvenation, mini face lifts, S-lift, and browlifts. The best technique depends on the target area and the desired results.

The following are five common areas that a facelift can target:

  • Sagging skin in the mid-face
  • Jowls and sagging skin along the jawline
  • Loss of volume in the cheeks
  • Deep creases along the nose and mouth
  • Loose skin on the neck

Are You an Ideal Candidate for a Facelift?

A facelift is a highly personalized procedure. It is essential that you do it for yourself and not to fulfill other people’s desires. Some of the ideal candidates for a facelift include:

  • Physically and emotionally healthy individuals
  • Individuals with realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Should understand the potential risks and benefits
  • Should be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking

Will Facelift Help Me Look Younger?

There is no doubt a facelift is highly effective at helping men and women look much younger. While facelift results differ for every patient, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) estimates the procedure can make you look 12 years younger on average. Peeling more than a decade off your facial appearance comes with several benefits, including:

  • Better looks and posture
  • Enhanced confidence and self-esteem
  • Tightening up saggy facial skin
  • Naturally looking results

It is crucial to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon with realistic expectations.
