A facelift is a popular cosmetic procedure that has restored many patients’ youthful appearances and self-confidence. If you are considering a facelift, here is everything you need to know about the procedure and how you can benefit.
Facial exercises to contour or tone your face do not work the same way as exercises to tone your abdomen. Wrinkles and sagging skin are actually made worse by repetitive facial movements which is why certain wrinkles like frown lines and smile lines are called dynamic wrinkles. Moving your face to perform facial exercises will not improve these signs of aging; rather, it may make symptoms worse.
If you feel self-conscious about noticeable signs of aging and non-surgical treatments like fillers or lasers are not working anymore, it may be time to consider a facelift. Many people think you have to be a certain age to receive a facelift but this is not true. A facelift can lift sagging skin and rejuvenate the appearance of any patient in overall good health.
Although full recovery from a facelift takes several weeks, most of the healing process is completed in the first two weeks. During the first few days, moderate discomfort is common and symptoms like swelling and bruising will worsen before they get better. Within 1-2 weeks, patients return to work and can resume most of their normal activities. To speed up your healing, make sure to stay hydrated, well-nourished, and follow all of your post-surgical guidelines.
Facelifts often last for 10 years or more. Unfortunately, skin aging cannot be stopped but it is significantly delayed by facelift surgery. Avoiding sun exposure, eating a healthy diet, and using quality skin care products will maintain your rejuvenated appearance after surgery.
