No one wants to get older. When you look at yourself in the mirror and you see wrinkles, lost facial volume and other signs of aging, it can be very frustrating. The good news is that there are cosmetic procedures that can reverse some of the effects of aging. One such procedure is a facelift.
If you opt to have a facelift done, you should know that you are in good company. In 2011, more than 125,000 people had facelifts. And that number has stayed relatively steady over the past few years.
Facelifts are still popular for good reason. They work. They can produce some extremely powerful results that last for years as opposed to just a few months with non-surgical procedures.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The truth is there is no set age or facial profile that determines whether or not you are a good candidate for a facelift. One of the determining factors is your health. The healthier you are, the more elastic your skin is and the better able you are to bounce back from the procedure. It is also important to have realistic expectations regarding the outcome.
Should I Get a Facelift?
During a consultation at Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, our board-certified surgeon can evaluate your face and determine the right surgical technique for you. Our surgeon’s goal is to make you look younger and more refreshed. This is accomplished by adjusting facial tissue as well as adjusting superficial layers. A facelift leaves a person looking younger and more revitalized, but it does not leave them looking like they were worked on. This is a good thing. People will notice that you look better, but it won’t be obvious to them that you had a surgical procedure done.
Recovery time varies. However, the typical recovery is around two to three weeks. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing during this time. Once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come.
