Not quite sure if you?re ready for a facelift? Here are 5 signs that it might be time to do something surgical about your aging face.
Your skin is sagging ? a lot
Now, a bit of sag is natural with age, pretty much everyone gets it. A certain amount of sag can usually be improved by the correct administration of fillers. But if you have more extensive, widespread sagging, or advanced sagging, then fillers may no longer be effective or effective enough to make you look better.
There?s more wrinkling than fillers can keep up with
Another great use of fillers is to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles in our faces. If you use fillers and muscle relaxants early and often then fine lines and wrinkles can be drastically reduced. If your wrinkles are more pronounced, then only a facelift may correct them.
You?ve got jowls, or a dropping jawline
A well defined jawline creates a youthful appearance. Unfortunately, as we get older some of us can develop a lot of droop in the area, which can age you quite considerably. A facelift can correct a drooping jawline and tighten up the chin area.
It?s the lower part of your face that needs something done ? not your forehead or eye area
A facelift only works from underneath the eye region to the neck. If you have a lot of wrinkling in the forehead or a drooping brow, then you might need a brow lift, and if you have problems in the eye area then you will likely need an eye lift instead. These surgeries may be performed at the same time as a facelift, if necessary.
You?re in Good Health Otherwise
It?s important that you are in good health before any surgery to make sure that you are going to get the best looking and healing results and to make sure that you reduce your risk of any complications happening. This means good physical health, which you can work up to if you?re wanting to undergo a facelift.
Of course, there are some other markers that will let you know that you?re ready for a facelift, like the ability to take time off work! If you think you might be ready then why not book in with a facelift surgeon Sydney and see if the procedure is for you.
