Five Signs You’re Ready For a Facelift
Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing wrinkles and sagging skin? If so, a facelift might be the solution for you. Here are five ways to know if it’s the right choice:
1. You’re tired of temporary results.
While there are many nonsurgical options for maintaining a youthful appearance, they only provide short-term results. Facelift surgery offers long-lasting results that can turn back the clock for years, not just months.
2. You have deep creases around your mouth.
Once wrinkles become more pronounced, fillers may not be enough. A facelift is a more effective way to address deep creases and restore a youthful appearance.
3. You’ve lost volume in your mid-face.
Facelift surgery not only reduces wrinkles but also restores volume to sunken areas like the cheeks. This can make your face look plumper and healthier.
4. You’re unhappy with your jawline and neck.
Sagging skin under the chin and along the neckline can make you look older than you are. A facelift can improve the appearance of jowls, double chin, and a “turkey neck.”
5. You always look tired or angry.
Skin laxity and lost facial volume can make you appear fatigued or upset, even when you’re well-rested. A facelift can refresh your appearance by five to ten years and make you feel rejuvenated inside and out.

When considering any surgical procedure, you want to make sure you’re physically AND emotionally prepared. Consider the following when deciding if a facelift is a good fit for you.
You’re in good overall health: Candidates for a facelift should have healthy lifestyle habits, be at or near their target weight, and be nonsmokers. Being in good health ensures a faster healing time and reduces the risk of complications.
You’re willing to commit to the recovery process: Facelift surgery requires time to heal and recover. You’ll need to rest and follow post-surgical instructions carefully for the best results. Consider it a staycation that gives you time to relax and catch up on things.
You’re emotionally prepared for a change: Undergoing a facelift is a big decision, so it’s normal to have concerns. A consultation with a skilled surgeon can help address any worries and provide realistic expectations for your results.
