Consumers, including you and me, spend a sizeable portion of their income every year on beauty products, medicines and treatments to boost our physical appearance. The majority of the beauty industry is centred on making people look younger, and that is because of the standards set by society making people believe that they looked better a couple of decades ago.
The surgical facelift can alter your physical appearance in many ways, literally turning the clock almost a decade in reverse by tightening underlying facial tissues and removing skin. Time usually leads to sagging skin and wrinkles, which is why facelift serves to improve the contours of the face by removing the effects of time.
Problems Addressed by a Facelift
The face lift may range in intensity for every patient but they commonly address wrinkles around the eyes, flabby skin around the jaws and cheekbones, and straightening out the wrinkles from the neck to the forehead. By making incisions behind the ears, above the temples and lower portion jaw, doctors can make use of surgical tools and fillers to tightening the deep tissues hence lessening the tension on facial skin making the effects of surgery last a lot longer. A nose job, chin job, ear tuck, brow lift, eyelid surgery and liposuction around the neck can also be added if necessary.
Lower facelifts end up giving the recipient a better-defined jaw line, smoothing out cheeks, jowls and the neck area; eventually making the contours of the face stand sharper than they used to before.
Reasons to Get a Facelift
Looking younger is the primary motivation to get a facelift. By removing the age factor and its related factors, people can rebuild self-esteem, confidence, and attitude, improve physical appearances and be able to partake in various social activities that they were previously unable to take part in. Other people may have other reasons but looking younger is the central theme along which the motives are placed.
Benefits of Facelift
Apart from aesthetic improvement, the benefits of facelift are numerous. A few are listed as follows.
Removes Wrinkles around Main Facial Features
Eyes are the windows to the soul, and improving their appearance is imperative in reshaping how your face looks. Facelift almost completely eliminates wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyelids while smoothening out lines, crow’s feet and tightens the skin around the eyes. This makes the recipient look sharper and years younger than they really are.
Overall Aesthetic Appearance is Enhanced
Aimed at the mid-face area, the effect of tightening the skin can improve the overall appearance of the recipient’s face. The lower face lift works around the jaws, neck and chin and brings out the bone structure of the face making the recipient’s look at its finest. By firming prominent aspects fo the face, the overall appearance can change dramatically.
Scarring is Obscure and Hidden from View
As explained above, incisions made around the face and not on it are subtly hidden in the hairline or creases of the ear and neck hence are away from everyday observation. Our plastic surgeons will ensure that the incisions will remain hidden from view and as time passes the scars that are already hidden will fade out.
Adding Vitality to Your Professional Life
For people who have a job that requires a lot of social protocol, image building and interactions; a facelift can give you run for your money’s worth. Now, first impressions will be delightfully in your favor and the improved confidence that comes with knowing how good you look can help you achieve goals that you previously thought weren’t possible. You will notice the surge in your professional success and your work will actually become a breeze to do.
Rebuilding Confidence and Self-Esteem
This factor comes in at number two after aesthetic change which is why it is mentioned last. Statistics have proven it so, with more than 78% of patients undergoing facial surgery report a remarkable boost in confidence and psychological perception levels. The benefits of facelift will stay in affect for at least 10 more years, continuously bringing out the best in you, since you will begin to believe in yourself and feel as if you have turned over a new page in your life. It sure does feel good to be young again!
The Elements don’t Affect you Anymore
After a facelift, the effects of sun exposure and wind chapping of the skin will be heavily downsized; by taking good care of your skin you can lengthen that invulnerability to the elements for many years. The fresh look will remove the tiredness that is usually associated with the stressed out old age look and make you feel unsusceptible to old man time himself!
Although people can look amazing at any age in time; the benefits of facelift are given. If that is what it takes to improve your outlook, physical appearance and many other things in your life then why not take the step. A facelift however won’t change your life for you; it will change your perception of life and other people’s perception of you.
