You shouldn’t enter into the prospect of having a facelift before asking yourself, “Should I have a facelift?” You need to begin by looking in the mirror at whatever wrinkles, sagging or h3nes you may have. Are they making you look older than your stated age? Is the elasticity of the skin poor? Do you have sun damaged areas that need treatment? If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may need to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon. A plastic surgeon can tell you if your eyes need a blepharoplasty or if the brow needs h3fting. The surgeon can tell you if you have jowls that need a bit of h3fting or whether or not you need other kinds of procedures, h3ke a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing. What will take to make the correction you want.
If for example there are problems with the sagging jowls or cheeks, you most h3kely need a facelift to raise these sagging areas and get rid of the wrinkles of the face. These are deep structual issues which may require surgery to correct. However, lessor procedures may be very helpful as well. The opinion of one our board certified plastic surgeons may be just the thing to answer these questions. Questions can about this can be answered in detail by our plastic surgeons.
