Signs that a Facelift Is Right for You By crhove on May 11, 2019

A middle-aged woman smilingIf you would like to fight signs of advanced age and improve your overall appearance, you should consider getting a facelift, a popular anti-aging facial plastic surgery procedure. Dr. Christopher Hove has helped countless people in the greater Paoli, PA area look more refreshed and years younger.

Some people wonder if a facelift is right for them. The team at the Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery would like to go over some signs that a facelift is the right cosmetic treatment for your needs.

Common Patient Age for a Facelift

Most patients who undergo a facelift tend to be between the ages of 40 and 60. Around this time, the effects of age can be quite pronounced on the face, with deep lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. By the time you reach your 40s, you may start contemplating facial plastic surgery procedures, particularly the facelift.

Types of Lines and Wrinkles a Facelift Can Treat

A facelift is ideal for treating certain types of lines and wrinkles located in the middle portion of the face. That typically means sagging cheeks, weary eyes, loose facial skin, and deepening lines around the eye area.

You’ll notice these parts of the face are much more affected by the aging process once you reach your 40s and onward.

General Candidacy for a Facelift

So you’ve reached a certain age and notice sagging facial skin as well as various lines and wrinkles. You should consider visiting our Paoli plastic surgery center for a consultation. We can go over general candidacy for a facelift, such as you current health and wellness, issues with scarring, and your expectations for the surgery.

Knowing the Risks and Benefits of Surgery

Before undergoing any sort of surgical procedure, facelift patients need to be aware of all the risks and benefits that are associated with the procedure. This will help patients have a realistic expectation of the treatment process, which tends to lead to better recoveries and higher levels of overall patient satisfaction.

Facelift vs. Non-Surgical Cosmetic Treatments

Another important consideration is the potential for undergoing non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic injectables such as BOTOX® injections and dermal fillers have been growing in popularity over the years, overtaking many facial rejuvenation surgeries. If you feel that cosmetic injection may be more ideal for you, you may want to consider these non-surgical alternatives to a facelift.

However, if you have tried non-surgical injections or feel that their temporary benefits are not suitable for your aesthetic goals, you should consider discussing a facelift with our team.

Discuss Your Facial Rejuvenation Options

There are so many options to consider when it comes to reducing wrinkles and fighting signs of advanced age. During your visit to our Paoli cosmetic surgery center, we can discuss all of these matters with you in much greater detail, and make sure all of your concerns are addressed.
