The facelift is one of the top five cosmetic procedures that gets performed every year, and its popularity is on the rise, having risen 2% from 2018 to 2019. And there are plenty of good reasons as to why more people are choosing to get facelifts.

A facelift is nothing to be ashamed of getting. It can help you look and feel great about yourself regardless of your age or sex. And the best news? Incision marks are small and discreet, easily hid behind make-up and hair.

There are many benefits to getting a facelift, and here are just five of the reasons to get one:

Tighten Up That Second Chin

As people age, the skin under the chin can droop, creating a “second chin” or “double chin.” It is excess skin that is caused by a loss of elasticity that naturally occurs over time.

A facelift can help by removing the extra skin along the jawline and gently pulling the leftover tissues up and back to create a sleek, more youthful line. Getting an additional necklift or laser skin treatment can sculpt an even sleeker line and further reduce signs of aging.

Firm Up Cheeks

Skin on the cheeks loses elasticity over time too. Many clients are interested in cheek augmentation. In this procedure, clients get treated to cheek filler and a lift to help reposition natural soft tissues or by placing implants. Even if you don’t have sagging cheeks, you can still get them looking fuller with cheek augmentation in addition to a facelift.

Lessen Wrinkles and Creases Around the Eyes and Nose

Some patients have a lot of wrinkles and creases around their face and want to look younger. A BOTOX/Dysport treatment in addition to a facelift can treat those pesky crow’s feet and soften those furrows along the brow. The smile lines around the corners of the mouth can also be reduced with the aid of a facelift.

Gain More Overall Vivacity

One of the goals of treatment here is to help patients look more vivacious. Our skin is exposed to a lot of free radicals in the environment, not to mention all the sun exposure we get. This leads to premature skin aging and a look of perpetual tiredness.

A facelift – especially one done in conjunction with laser skin treatment – can create a more energized look in the skin, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and nose.

Look the Age You Feel

Overall, patients want to look youthful. Lifting the tissues in your face and around the jawline can create a more invigorated, younger appearance. This means you can look as young as you might feel on the inside. It can also help you feel more confident about the face you present to the rest of the world.
