Home Facelift Do I Want A Facelift?

| emmett plastic surgeryWhen it comes to the face you present to the world, are you happy with it? Our faces can put up with so much, but the elements do take their toll eventually. For instance, if you haven’t worn sunscreen for most of your life, you may notice sun spots or other signs of aging on your beautiful face. In face, one of the biggest things we notice about people who have neglected their skin is sagging skin that often is accompanied by wrinkles. And nobody wants those!

If your deep wrinkles are etched in the skin or you have skin that has lost volume and elasticity, you might be ready for a big change. And we can’t go back in time to tell our younger selves to wear sunscreen. Keep reading to learn about our facelift procedure and who is a good candidate for a facelift.

Who is a good candidate?

As the aging process and the outside elements take their toll, our skin loses its  collagen. This can lead to our skin having wrinkles and sagginess. We naturally tend to lose elasticity in our skin as we age, but some faces will show that loss more dramatically. How well we take care of our skin can affect what we look like when we’re older.

If you suffer from deep wrinkles or sagging skin, we can help improve your self-esteem by going to the source of the issue. Facelift surgery can help remove the extra skin that pulls your face down and gives you that sad, tired or grumpy look.

Keep in mind that you will need to be in good health, and able to undergo surgery to have a facelift done. If you do not do well with anesthesia, a facelift may not be the right choice for you. You may need to stop taking some medications before you have your facelift, too. We will discuss this and more during your consultation to make sure you have great results.
