Are you considering a facelift? Aging is a natural part of life, and with it often comes a desire to maintain a youthful appearance. In this blog, we’ll explore the telltale signs that indicate you might be ready to take the next step in your journey towards facial rejuvenation. Discover the four key signs that could indicate it’s time to explore the world of facelift procedures and unlock a more confident version of yourself. 

1. You desire more long-lasting results 

There are various non-surgical techniques available to maintain a youthful appearance, including Botox, fillers, and skin treatments. While these are highly effective in rejuvenating one’s look, their effects may be more short-lived and often require additional treatments.  A facelift provides more long-lasting results and are tailored specifically to your anatomy.  

2. You have loose skin of your face and neck  

Between the ages of 40 and 60, you may begin to notice the emergence of loose skin on your face and neck. To address sagging skin, surgical treatment is often required. A facelift involves the removal of excess fat, tightening of underlying muscles, and elimination of surplus skin. This helps to improve the jowls of the face and contour of the neck.  

3. You have lost volume in your face  

As we age, specific regions of the face may become more sunken or hollow. You actually lose fat from the fat compartments of your face. A facelift restores volume of the face by incorporating fat grafting. Fat grafting adds volume and results in a more youthful appearing face.  

4. You are in good physical health  

The best candidates for a facelift are those who live a healthy lifestyle and are nonsmokers. Prioritizing good health and avoiding nicotine before a facelift promotes quicker healing and decreases post-operative complications.
