A facelift doesn’t change your entire appearance. What it does is smooth out the skin and restore your face to a more youthful appearance. As we age, it becomes more difficult to achieve this. A facelift isn’t a miracle cure for the visual signs of aging, but it can help restore your self-confidence.
So, when is the best time to get a facelift? The answer isn’t a simple one because an individual experiences facial aging dependent on genetics, environmental factors, bone weakening, diet and many other factors. Different individuals experience visual signs of aging at different periods in their lives.
If you are becoming concerned about drooping skin on the jowls, non-set wrinkles on the face and crease lines, talk to Dr. Beth Collins at her office in Guilford. She and her team of professionals will let you know if a facelift procedure is the proper corrective treatment for your concerns. We will examine your face closely, note the bone structure and the thickness of the skin and determine whether excess fat deposits and loose skin are the main culprit.
You may also benefit from a facelift if these visual signs of aging are only just now becoming apparent. However, it is important to understand that if you have had problems with brittle, wrinkled skin for many years, a facelift may partially correct this. It all depends on the unique situation.
This procedure does involve some downtime after surgery is complete. During a consultation with us, you’ll learn what to expect before, during and after the procedure. Typically, the recovery is only about two weeks. So, a good time to get a facelift would be when you have the proper amount of time in your schedule for a full recovery.
Everyone is different, and changes to the appearance of the face don’t affect everyone at the same age.
