A facelift can roll back the hands of time on your skin and make your face look younger and more vibrant. If you’re ready to make a real change for the better, you might be ready for the beautiful results that a facelift can give you.
If you’re not happy with the sagging, wrinkled look of your face, a facelift could make a dramatic difference. It won’t make you look like you’re 20, but it will turn back time on your overall look and erase those wrinkles, jowls and drooping cheeks.
Benefits of a Facelift
- The results are designed to last for years.
- It smooths away deep wrinkles.
- It can reduce your double chin.
- Your skin will look firm and smooth.
- You’ll look fresh, younger and more rejuvenated.
- It strengthens your facial muscles.
How Do Fillers Compare to a Facelift?
If you’ve thought about getting dermal fillers, you may have wondered if you can simply use them instead of getting a facelift. Here are some differences you should be aware of:
You get less visible results. Fillers do an excellent job, and most people are thrilled with their results. These results, however, are not as striking and visible as the ones you get from a surgical procedure.
They’re not permanent. Fillers are temporary. Even the longest-lasting ones will need a touchup eventually. Plus, some fillers require repeated injections to give you the results you want. A facelift gives you a beautiful, younger face in just one day.
Fillers don’t address laxity. One of the chief signs of aging in your face is laxity. Fillers don’t do anything to fix this looseness of the skin. Only surgery can tighten the skin and make it firm.
Many people who start getting fillers eventually find that a facelift is the better option to get the vibrant, young look they want.
What is the Procedure Like?
A facelift is normally done as an outpatient procedure. The excess fat and skin can be removed and the muscles tightened. However, the exact details of each procedure vary from patient to patient, as the surgery is not one-size-fits-all.
