One of the most popular surgical cosmetic procedures on the market today is a facelift. In fact, when people think about cosmetic surgery, this is usually the first thing to come to mind. This leads a lot of people to wonder whether or not they need to have a facelift once they start to see the effects of aging on their face.
Something that makes this question even more complicated is the prevalence of non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. The king of non-surgical cosmetic medical procedures today is BOTOX®. It allows people to turn back the hands of time with a few injections. Dermal fillers have also taken on a larger role in helping people recoup their youthful appearance without undergoing surgery. So people may ask, “If there are all of these non-surgical procedures, what are the benefits of having a facelift?”
There are a few strong arguments for having a facelift done. First, all of the above-mentioned procedures are temporary. You can opt to receive touch-up treatments whenever the results start to wear off, but not everyone likes the idea of having to regularly maintain their results. They prefer a more permanent treatment.
A facelift procedure provides results that can last for more than a decade. While dermal fillers may be able to take a couple of years off your appearance, clinical studies have shown that a facelift can take between eight to ten years off your perceived age. The results are simply more powerful and long-lasting.
Since there is no age profile for individuals who should consider a facelift, people at varying stages of the aging process can have this procedure done. A facelift is a highly individualized procedure, which is partly why it produces such amazing results. Dr. Banis will take in a lot of different factors, including your age, trouble areas, and goals, during your consultation to develop the best plan for you.
A facelift is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. What works for one person may not necessarily work for you, which is why the procedure is directly tailored to each patient’s needs. It can be performed on specific parts of your face, depending on where you need help most. It can also be done in conjunction with other procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery, to further enhance your results.
