Four reasons to consider a facelift
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Show Low, AZ area patients who are bothered by the signs of aging on the face may be unsure as to what procedures can be done to enhance their appearance. One procedure that is often considered is that of the traditional facelift. A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that can be used to enhance the facial skin. It pulls the skin tighter, reducing skin laxity and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It can turn back time for both men and women, and provide long-term results.
Why should I have a facelift?
There are several reasons why patients may speak to the team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery about a facelift. Below are some of the common problems:
- Skin laxity – as we age, our skin loses volume due to reduced amounts of collagen and elastin. This results in sagging skin referred to as “skin laxity.” When the skin is loose, it can sag and it can contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Tired appearance – brightening a tired appearance caused from the environmental stress the facial skin is subjected to regularly is another reason patients might consider moving forward with a facelift procedure.
- Deep creases – while alterative treatment options such as dermal fillers may be beneficial for patients with mild wrinkles and folds, deep creases can only be effectively treated with surgery such as a facelift or brow lift.
- Wrinkled skin – a facelift pulls the skin up around the hair line to disguise the incision and hide any future scarring. In doing so, it smooths the skin and can help patients feel as young as they look.
