When you look in the mirror, are you surprised by the person looking back at you? Is the person in the mirror so much older than you feel? Are jowls, a turned-down mouth, and a drooping neck all you can see? Seeing the mirror reflect someone who looks old and worn out can make you feel self-conscious and sad about your appearance.

Some are hesitant to consider a facelift procedure, but facelift surgery at our practice can create youthful, long-lasting results that nonsurgical treatments can’t achieve.

Choosing plastic surgery is a personal decision. Here are four things to consider when deciding if a facelift is right for you.

1. You Don’t Look Like Yourself

Time affects all people. As we age, skin can wrinkle, sag, or droop. As these tissues move, your face shape can change to appear square. When you look in the mirror, does your face seem not quite right? This may be because of loose, slouchy skin. A facelift can correct these skin elasticity issues and help you look like a younger version of yourself.

2. Nonsurgical Treatments Aren’t Giving the Results You Want

The popularity of nonsurgical treatments is not for nothing! They’re cost-effective and require little to no downtime. But nonsurgical treatments treat surface issues and can only do so much.

If you want to fix loose skin or weakened muscles, you want something more extreme than injectables and topicals. If you’re unhappy with the results from your nonsurgical treatments, a facelift might be the next step.

3. You’re Ready to Invest

Nonsurgical procedures are a cost-effective way to get short-term results. But they need to be maintained every few months. Some people don’t like going into their plastic surgeon’s office for touch-ups. A facelift has a higher price point but has long-lasting results.

4. You Can Take Some Time Off

A facelift is a surgery, and you’ll need time to heal after. Not everyone is comfortable with taking time off to get a facelift and recover. If you can take some time off and want amazing results, you’re probably ready for a facelift.
