How do you feel about getting older? Some individuals say they appreciate the wisdom and experience that they gain as they get older. Other individuals say they hate the aging process because of the way it affects their appearance. Thankfully, there are procedures that are designed to allow you to get the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the wisdom and experience that you are gaining as you get older, yet you do not have to look like you are old. While nothing can be done to stop the aging process altogether, a facelift can definitely help you to improve your overall appearance.
A facelift is designed to address sagging and wrinkling skin, the loss of volume in the face and the problem of muscles, fat pads, tissue and skin shifting downward as you get older. If you are dealing with jowls and a double chin because of the aging process, a facelift may help.
So, what kind of results can you expect with a facelift? While it is impossible to promise anything, there are many studies and surveys that have been done involving individuals who have had a facelift. On average, these individuals are able to look at least seven years younger than they really are thanks to the procedure. In some cases, a person can look even younger thanks to this procedure. However, there are so many different things that can play a role in the results that you are going to get.
Some people opt to have a neck lift, brow lift or eyelid lift performed in conjunction with the facelift. This may be appropriate for you as well. The reason why it is beneficial to combine the surgeries is so that you can feel satisfied with the overall results that you get.
