If you’re in the process of exploring whether a facelift procedure is the right solution for you, there are two important sets of considerations. Let’s take a look at each of them.
Recent survey results have indicated that most of us are relying less and less on our friends to get information and recommendations about plastic surgery, and more on social networking sites. In fact, 42% of patients get their information on cosmetic surgeries from social media.
Of course, it’s incredibly important to seek out good information on your own, but it’s also important to ask the right questions when considering a cosmetic procedure like a facelift. So, when determining if a facelift is a good fit for you, there are two questions you should ask yourself.
Will it help me in the specific areas where I want help? The answer is yes if you have:
- Nasolabial folds (aka, deep laugh lines)
- Sagging skin and jowls
- Fat deposits around the neck
- Other facial signs of aging
What specifically are your goals? A facelift can absolutely be the right procedure for you if your goals are:
- Improved facial contours
- Tightening of the jawline
- Smoother skin surface
- Rejuvenated overall facial appearance
The recovery time after a facelift is usually between 2-3 weeks, which is a legitimate consideration, but you should always consult your plastic surgeon. Following this procedure, you have to rest, keep your face elevated, and wear bandages to help you heal. It’s also important that you be an overall healthy non-smoker.
