When we begin to notice the signs of aging on our face, most of us are going to take steps to do something about the problem. When we first begin to see fine lines and wrinkles, we may use different procedures that help to treat our skin and help it look young again. For example, we may use treatments like dermal fillers and micro-needling. Or we may use a product like BOTOX® to relax the facial muscles. We may use these kinds of products and treatments for several years in order to maintain youthful-looking skin and to feel good about the way we look. However, there comes a time when we are not getting the results that we want with these relatively non-invasive treatments. There will come a time when we begin looking at surgical procedures as an option to help us look our best.
The great thing about getting a facelift is that you will be able to enjoy long-lasting results. It is an invasive method to help you regain your youth, but you are going to have a drastically improved appearance. When you use dermal fillers, BOTOX® and other things that are designed to improve the way you look, you usually have to get these treatments done at least once a year or more. And the results that you get are minimal when compared to the results of a facelift. When you get a facelift, you are guaranteed long-lasting results. You do not need to return to our office for touch-up treatments, and you are going to be extremely satisfied with what you see after you recover.
Even though each individual is different, it has been proven time and again that when a person gets a facelift, they are able to look about 10 to 15 years younger. In addition to the fact that you may have actually seen the results that some individuals have had after a facelift, lots of studies have been done on facelifts. For example, in one study, they showed several individuals pictures of people and asked them to guess their age. They were not told that the individual had a facelift. Once they looked at the results from every participant, they compared the age the participants guessed with the actual age of the individual. It was estimated that people who had a facelift looked anywhere from 7 to 10 years younger than they really were.
