Our faces get a lot of attention: they show our friends and family if we’re upset, they help us make new friends, and they help us brave the elements. That being said, our faces really deserve a bit of extra love and care. The sun, biting cold, and wind our faces are exposed to can contribute to signs of premature aging like wrinkles and sagging skin.
If you’re bothered by deeply etched wrinkles or skin that has lost volume and elasticity, keep reading to learn about our facelift procedure and some of the most frequently asked questions about it.
Who is a good candidate for a facelift?
As age and the elements take their toll, our skin shows more wrinkles and sagging skin. We naturally lose elasticity as we age, but some faces show that loss more dramatically than others. In fact, you may look around you and notice how some faces show sagging skin while other people of the same age do not. It all depends on how well we take care of our skin, as well as genetic factors.
If you suffer from deep wrinkles or sagging skin, and are unhappy with the face you present to the world, we can help. Facelift surgery can help remove extra skin that makes you look sad, tired or angry. And, the results last much longer than Botox or fillers, so if you’re ready for a real change, then a facelift is for you.
How long until I can go back to work?
We recommend taking the best care of yourself while you heal, and following our instructions closely. That being said, you will want to prepare and take around two weeks off work to allow yourself to rest. Some patients heal faster and feel good enough to return to work sooner, but knowing yourself can help you make the best decision for you.
How much will it cost?
Facelifts are just as individual as the people who receive them. That being said, your concerns may vary, which impacts the cost. We can discuss these details in a consultation.
