Our body stops producing collagen as we age, and our skin loses elasticity. As a result, our skin starts to sag, and wrinkles begin to form. The natural aging process is beautiful and tells the tale of a person’s wisdom and experiences.
However, suppose you’re not quite ready to embrace your age or have experienced premature aging from environmental factors like sun exposure and smoking. In that case, you may want to look into a facelift to mitigate the issues.
A facelift or a rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure used to lift and tighten facial tissues. During a facelift, a doctor removes excess skin, smoothes wrinkles, folds and creases, and tightens facial tissues.
A facelift is a fantastic option if you’re looking to rejuvenate your face and look more vibrant. We’ve compiled the top reasons to consider getting a facelift in this guide. Read on to find out if the facelift is right for you.
Target Multiple Signs of Aging in One Step
A facelift is an excellent option for anyone who wants to address multiple issues within one procedure. Facelifts help with the sagging of the facial skin. They also reduce the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and deep creases and address excess fat issues such as having a double chin or a turkey neck.
Tolerable Recovery Process
While your doctor will give you all the pertinent information about what to expect from recovery, most people can get back to day-to-day life in two weeks. However, this does not include any strenuous activity, which should wait for at least four weeks.
You may have swelling and bruising, but your doctor will give you medication if you have pain after your procedure.
Unlike fillers, medications, makeup, and over-the-counter solutions, a facelift is done one time with results that can last more than 10 years. With a facelift, you would save yourself a lot of time, money, and grief that you would otherwise waste on temporary and ineffective solutions.
No Visible Surgical Scars
In modern facelifts, incisions are small to ensure they heal quickly and effectively. In addition, incisions are often hidden in the hairline or behind the ear to make sure people cannot notice them.
