Facelift

Facelifts (rhytidectomy) are among the oldest of all plastic surgeries with a history that goes back to the earliest days of the 20th century and it remains one of the most popular. The appeal is obvious. Our faces are what others first notice about us and we all know that our faces are also where signs of aging tend to be most obvious. With a carefully performed facelift from a board-certified plastic surgeon at the Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute, patients have a chance to look as young as they feel.

What Does a Facelift Do?

Facelift surgery addresses the most telltale signs of aging by tightening loose skin around the neck and jawline as well as lifting sagging cheeks. It’s a simple idea but it takes an outstanding plastic surgeon to achieve the best, most natural looking, results safely.

What Are the Benefits of a Facelift?
Studies have shown that facelift surgery often results in patients appearing healthier, more attractive, and successful. It’s not unusual for patients to note that they look almost a decade younger after facelift surgery.

Also, appearance can actually be more than skin-deep. For many individuals, their outward appearance has a large effect on their self-confidence and overall mental health. With a rejuvenated look more akin to how they looked in their prime, patients often feel less self-conscious about their appearance and much more confident in their daily lives. Moreover, ageism is an unfortunate fact of life, not only socially but in the workplace. Many people obtain facelifts to avoid being perceived as too old to understand the modern-day marketplace and we have every reason to believe that the combination of looking younger and increased self-confidence has helped patients middle-aged and older do better in their careers.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
If you’re looking to tighten loose skin around your jawline or lift drooping cheeks, a facelift may be right for you. While a facelift can provide many benefits to reverse or minimize the signs of aging, it’s important to note that the procedure cannot stop the natural facial aging process or significantly alter your general facial appearance. Turning back the clock about ten years is the usual best-case scenario.

Of course, plastic surgery is not for everyone, and its important to ensure that there are no medical contraindications for a facelift. Also, since every face is different, the likely outcomes can differ greatly from person to person. If you’re interested in a facelift, the next step is to set up a consultation with an outstanding board-certified plastic surgeon at Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute. Our medical team is dedicated to providing patients with the best possible results with maximum safety.
