With sun damage and the natural process of aging, your face starts to sag. It can start as early as your 30’s. There are noninvasive tightening options out there, but a surgical facelift is still gold, working to lift facial skin and improve signs of aging on both your neck and your face.
A surgical facelift removes loose skin, tightening the skin that remains. The procedure also elevates sagging tissue, making the outline of your jaw clearer and tightening the muscles and skin of your neck.
The Right Candidate
Facelifts are for men and women. You need to have a sufficient amount of facial laxity for the procedure to be worthwhile.
The right candidate for a facelift is one who has excess fat or skin laxity in the neck, visible neck muscles that are causing the neck to band, a loss of a clear jawline between your face and neck, deep lines, and jowling.
It’s worth noting that extra skin or fat on the eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows cannot be treated with a facelift and require a separate eyelift surgery.
A facelift is an elective surgery, which means you need to be in good health and have a good understanding of the potential outcome of your procedure.
When Should I Get a Facelift?
If you regularly do facial exercises and have tried noninvasive tightening procedures, but it’s not helping, maybe it’s time to think about a facelift. Also, if you find that your self-confidence is suffering as a result of deep lines, creases, and sagging skin, surgery could be an effective solution.
You don’t need to be a certain age to undergo a facelift. Provided you’re in good health, just about anyone is a good candidate.
Overall, you know it’s time for you to consider a facelift when you are unhappy with the appearance of your neck and jawline. A facelift will effectively correct those neck muscles and loose skin and tighten up excess skin under the chin.
The result? A fresher, younger-looking appearance that defies aging.
