Gravity is not on our list for Christmas cards this year. When it comes to beauty, gravity is not our friend. Sure, it helps keep us on this beautiful spinning planet and it’s a regular part of our everyday lives. But why does gravity have to pull so much when it comes to the skin on our faces? If you’re ready to turn back the clock (and turn back the effects of gravity), keep reading to learn more about our facelift procedure.
Who is a good candidate for a facelift?
As we age, a lot of things start to happen. Wrinkles become permanent and more deeply etched into the skin of the face and neck. We also develop more sagging in the skin, and you might find that you have little jowls below your jaw one day. Facelift surgery can help reverse some of the signs of aging, and the effects are more long-term than treatments like fillers or Botox which fade after a few months. Though everyone keeps aging, a facelift can help you look ten to fifteen years younger, and you will likely look younger even years after your procedure than if you’d never had a facelift.
If you are bothered by sagging skin or deep wrinkles, then a facelift may be a great fit for you.
How long until I can go back to work?
Generally, you will want to give yourself plenty of time to recover, just in case your recovery time is slower than other patients. Two weeks is usually optimal for most patients, though some return to work sooner than that.
When can I start exercising again?
We recommend that you avoid exercise for around three weeks or so after your procedure. Your physician will discuss with you when you are ready to resume exercise. Exercising too early can cause issues with healing and your results.
How much will it cost?
The cost of a facelift varies depending on what you are looking for. Please get in touch with our office to discuss your needs.
