The Benefits of Facelift: Why You Should Undergo Facial Plastic Surgery

Posted in Facelift, Facial Plastic Surgery

Woman smiling at cameraMany people in and around the San Francisco area meet with Dr. Kimberly Henry because of the excellent care she provides as a plastic surgeon. A number of these patients seek her help to reduce wrinkles and look their youngest. A facelift is an ideal option for removing wrinkles and smoothing out the skin, and there are numerous benefits to undergoing the procedure. Let’s take a moment to consider the basic benefits of the facelift.

How a Facelift Is Performed

During a facelift, incision are made around the upper ear area and the lower portion of the hairline. Through these incisions, a facial plastic surgeon is able to adjust the underlying structures of the middle portion of the face and remove any excess skin and tissue. Tightening the facial skin is the last step of facelift surgery, which makes the wrinkles and sagging associated with advanced age disappear.

An Ideal Option for Removing Wrinkles and Lines

One of the major benefits of facelift surgery is that it is very effective at removing facial lines and wrinkles. The results last for years, unlike temporary treatments like dermal fillers and cosmetic injections. If you have wrinkles around the corners of your eyes, a facelift will help you get rid of them.

Sagging Skin Gets Tightened Thanks to Facelift Surgery

Loose, sagging, and drooping skin are all common signs of advanced age. The facelift is an ideal option for tightening the facial skin and making you look as youthful and refreshed as possible.

Incisions and Scars Are Well Hidden

The incisions from facelift are very well hidden since they are kept behind the ear and along a person’s hair. By following your pre-op and post-op instructions to the letter, the scars will be more likely to fade and be hard to notice, even when people are nearby.

The Results of a Facelift Are Excellent

When performed by a skilled cosmetic plastic surgeon, a facelift’s results can be very natural looking and subtle. Even if the work is dramatic, a person may just assume you’ve aged well and gracefully rather than think that you’ve had some work done.

Improve Your Career Opportunities

Looking your youngest and most refreshed can have a positive impact on your job opportunities. Many people who are involved in professions that emphasize public faces, personal interactions, and performing in front of others benefit from undergoing a facelift.

Enhance Your Self-Confidence

Sometimes signs of aging can have a negative impact on your self-esteem and self-image. Don’t let that hold you back. A facelift can help you look better and feel better about yourself, which can mean a lot just for regular day-to-day living.
