Facelifts are one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures available, and for good reason. There are many benefits of a facelift for a wide range of patients. Before you schedule your consultation with Dr. Power, here are 8 of the top benefits of getting a facelift.

1. Target Multiple Aging Signs in One Procedure

As you age, you will notice multiple changes in the texture of your skin and overall appearance. This includes sagging skin, creases, wrinkles, and a sunken appearance. You may notice jowls or a drooping appearance as fat deposits move to the lower third of the face. Aside from the natural aging process, these changes can occur or be worsened by factors like smoking, sun damage, or stress over time. A facelift will address wrinkles and sagging in multiple areas of the face for more complete rejuvenation in a single surgery.

2. Reduce a Double Chin & Eliminate Jowls

Facelifts are focused on the mid to lower parts of the face. Two common issues patients see in these areas are a double chin—known by plastic surgeons as “submental fullness”—and jowls. These are the result of sagging skin and excess fat just below the chin, resulting in a poorly defined jawline and a tired or older look. A facelift will tighten the skin in this area, and liposuction can be used to remove any unwanted fat. During your consultation, Dr. Power will carefully take your specific concerns into consideration, including a double chin or jowls, and use surgical techniques that offer your best possible results.

3. Tighten Loose or Sagging Skin

Collagen and elastin production naturally declines over time, meaning that your skin will eventually lose its elasticity. This results in sagging and loose skin, especially in areas like the cheeks or jawline. During a facelift, Dr. Power will lift and re-drape the skin, trimming away any excess loose skin as needed. This results in a tighter and more youthful look.

5. Soften Deep Wrinkles

Deep wrinkles are commonly caused by volume loss and decreased collagen. While most people understand that the skin is tightened during a facelift, some are surprised to learn that the underlying tissues are repositioned and tightened as well. This means that even deeper wrinkles can be smoothed and softened.

6. Great Option for a Range of Patients

When we think of a typical facelift patient, women commonly come to mind first. However, men often make great facelift candidates as well. In fact, facelifts are among the most highly requested plastic surgery procedures for men.

Similarly, some people may hold the misconception that there is one “perfect” age for a facelift. However, everyone will age at a different rate, with factors like your genetics and lifestyle habits playing a role in the right time for a facelift. Generally speaking, most patients undergoing facelift surgery are over age 50.  During a consultation, Dr. Power can help evaluate your concerns and recommend whether it’s time for a facelift.

7. Pairs Well with Other Treatments

With many surgical and non-surgical treatment options available, your procedure is highly customizable to achieve the results you are looking for. Many facelift patients choose to pair their facelifts with other anti-aging surgeries, such as a blepharoplasty or brow lift, to address wrinkles and sagging in multiple areas of the face. It can also be beneficial to pair your facelift with injectables like Botox to achieve the results you are looking for.

8. No Visible Scars & Natural-Looking Results

Facelift incisions are made carefully along the hairline and near the ears. This means that any resulting scars are well-concealed within the hairline or other natural contours of the face. At the same time, advanced facelift techniques offer natural-looking results rather than the “pulled” look of the past. This means that you will look refreshed and rejuvenated while still looking like yourself—nobody needs to know that you have had a procedure unless you choose to tell them.
