It is not uncommon to feel self-conscious about the way you look. Unfortunately, when we age, our skin and muscle tone can change in ways that make us less confident. A facelift can change all that, but many people think a facelift is too expensive or risky. There are actually many reasons to get one. Dr. Adam Stein is the premier specialist in facelifts, and he can answer all your questions to help you decide.
How Does a Facelift Work?
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures available, and millions of men and women have had them performed to reverse the age they look. We can’t stop time, but Dr. Stein can help you slow it down and keep you looking younger for longer. A facelift begins with incisions in discrete locations around your hairline and behind your ears to keep them well-hidden. Then the muscle layer and tissue structures that create volume in the face are anchored into a more youthful position. Last, Dr. Stein carefully removes excess skin and closes your incisions. By turning back the clock on how you look, you’ll have years of a more youthful appearance from just one surgical procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
Men and women bothered by the signs of aging on their faces—sagging tissues, jowls, deepening lines, and wrinkles—make excellent candidates for a facelift. The most qualified patients are those in generally good health who have reasonable expectations for the outcome. In some cases, complementary procedures like an eyelid lift or rhinoplasty can also be performed to enhance your results. Dr. Stein performs all his procedures in Stein Plastic Surgery’s state-of-the-art accredited surgical suite.
Top 5 Reasons to Consider a Facelift
1. Your appearance doesn’t match your confidence level.
Having an appearance that doesn’t fit how young we feel can chip away at our confidence and make us self-conscious. A facelift corrects that, aligning our appearance with how young we feel on the inside.
2. Your face is aging faster than you are.
This is the product of environmental and sun exposure taking a significant toll on the connective tissues in your skin. Gravity begins to win, making your skin sag and deepening your wrinkles. A facelift restores the position of your facial structures to match your appearance to how youthful you feel.
3. Achieve long-lasting results.
Over-the-counter face creams and serums promise to reverse signs of aging, but they cannot fight gravity. A facelift repositions your tissues to a more youthful starting point. So while further aging will occur, it will start from this young place rather than on top of the aging you’ve had corrected. Not only that, but Dr. Stein’s facelifts treat areas less-invasive procedures and products cannot. It’s true long-term age-reversal rather than temporary stop-gap measures.
4. Increase your self-confidence.
When you know you look good, you feel it on the inside. It puts more bounce in your step. You walk taller, with your chin high. You are capable of handling anything life throws at you. That’s the confidence a facelift can give you. Feeling good about your appearance has such an impact on how good you feel about everything else.
5. Refresh your overwhelmed, tired appearance.
When our skin is stressed—by the environment, the sun, or gravity—it looks dull and aged. This contributes to a fatigued or even haggard look. You may feel great, but your skin is telling people you don’t. A facelift can give people the right impression about you, your mood, and how alert you really are. It can also let your personality shine through without you having to say a word. You’re healthy, rested, and in control. Let the world know it.
