How Can a Facelift Transform Your Appearance?

Facelifts have been performed for a long time, so there's a good chance you're already familiar with them. The exact ways a facelift can improve a person's appearance may vary from person to person. In general, facelifts are used to reverse the visible signs of aging. Here's how a facelift can transform your look.

How Do Facelifts Address Aging Concerns?

A facelift is most helpful for facial aging because it can address specific problem areas. For many, the most undesirable cosmetic effects of aging are wrinkles. Wrinkles can form all over your face and deepen with time.

Addressing your wrinkles with a facelift makes sense because it can tighten your skin. The skin tightening it provides can smooth out your wrinkles. Your surgeon can also remove any excess skin contributing to your wrinkles. Because of the way facelift works, you can also rely on it to fix your sagging skin.

The loss of jawline definition is another manifestation of aging that facelifts can address. Your jawline may lose definition due to sagging skin around your cheeks and the accumulation of fat in your chin. An expert surgeon can tighten the skin around your cheeks and chin to improve jawline definition. They can also remove the accumulated fat near your chin to give you a more proportional profile.

What Can You Expect Following a Facelift?

Giving yourself plenty of time to recover following your facelift is important. Recovery from the aforementioned procedure usually takes at least two to three weeks. Note that you may still experience some swelling and stiffness following that recovery period, and you may not see the final results of the facelift until three to six weeks after the surgery.

Your surgeon will also provide care and maintenance tips following the procedure.

Listen closely to what they have to say and follow every step to ensure the procedure works as intended. If you have questions about certain aspects of your aftercare, you should get in touch with your surgeon as soon as possible.
