Aging signs show up in all the wrong places and in times that matter the most. With summer around the corner we cannot bear to be seen with saggy, wrinkly skin so what is it that you can do to look as young as you feel? A facelift can restore your youth when you are struggling to mask sagging skin, fine lines and creases, and restore muscle tone when there is an appearance of jowls or double chin. In the early days of facial surgery a facelift was a celebrity affordable treatment, but with the increasing need for rejuvenation getting a facelift is less invasive and inexpensive procedure that everyone can benefit from.
We know that the surge of dermal fillers and Botox are increasing in popularity, but nothing compares to the long-lasting results of a facelift procedure. A facelift, medically known as rhytidectomy, is designed to surgically tighten facial skin and neck muscles, remove excess skin and fat, and enhance facial contours.
Facelift surgery may be a great option if you are struggling to maintain your appearance despite having attempted other less invasive methods of non-surgical treatment. Even attempting to improve aging face habits can help stop or slow down aging signs, but not every technique is as effective as a facelift. Here are a few techniques that may help slow down the aging process:
- Limit nervous facial habits (frowning, smiling, and squinting)
- Wear sunglasses
- Avoid leaning face on your hands
- Blow your nose with less force
There is no way to avoid aging. We are all likely to see signs of aging increase over time. We can resort to a healthier diet, exercise more and prohibit our use of alcohol and smoking but facial aging is still likely to occur. According to a study from Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a facelift results in long-lasting results that go beyond 5 years after surgical intervention. Three main assessments proved to show lasting results in the lower face, nasal lines that were around the face and chin, and overall revealed 76 percent of patients maintaining a youthful look.
With this evidence we can attend to your aging signs when you find them difficult to manage in your 40s or 50s. In some instances, facelift surgery will be beneficial at a younger age when facial muscles and tissues are lacking in support. Once you have made the decision to undergo facelift then schedule a consultation at Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego/Chula Vista.
