5 Popular Reasons To Get a Facelift

Your self-confidence suffers when you don't like the face that's looking back at you in the mirror. There are many options to help you restore your youthful look, but none are quite as dramatic as a facelift.

If you're considering a facelift, the team at Meridian Plastic Surgery in Meridian, Mississippi, provides specialized care and cutting-edge technology. Dr. Lee Thornton and Dr. Mark Elliott are experienced plastic surgeons who offer various cosmetic treatments to improve your looks and restore your confidence.

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical cosmetic procedure our team performs to give you a more youthful appearance. Your provider offers a facelift if you're suffering from sagging skin on your face or neck.

During the procedure, your surgeon cuts a flap on either side of your face. The flap allows them to reposition your skin and remove fat or muscle to decrease the signs of aging on your face.

If you have sagging skin on your neck, our team may do a neck lift in conjunction with your facelift for more dramatic and noticeable results.

5 reasons to consider a facelift

Your face is the first thing everyone sees, so if you're not happy with your appearance, a facelift can help. There are several reasons that our team recommends a facelift, some of which include:

1. Get rid of your double chin

As you get older, it's common for your skin to sag around your chin. You may appear to have a double chin or sagging jowls. Our team can do a neck lift with your facelift to diminish the appearance of this excess skin.

2. Tighten up loose skin

The skin on your entire body becomes looser when you get older. If your skin is loose on your face, it creates more lines and wrinkles. A facelift can tighten skin that our team cannot treat through nonsurgical means.

3. Firm up your cheeks

The skin on your cheeks also suffers as you age. Your cheeks may droop down, making you look older than you are. Our team addresses this issue with a facelift for a more youthful appearance.

4. Diminish deep lines

Deep lines and folds around your nose and mouth are two changes your skin goes through later in life. If you're embarrassed by these lines, our team recommends a facelift to diminish these lines for a face you're excited to show off.

5. Improve your confidence

Signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin, significantly affect your confidence. When you need a self-esteem boost, a facelift is a guaranteed and dramatic way to improve your overall appearance and give you a more youthful look.

Is a facelift right for you?

When you need a dramatic change, a facelift is a great option to improve your appearance and give you confidence in your looks. There are several forms of facelift surgery, and our team determines which would be best for you.

You may benefit from a facelift if you're showing signs of aging but still have some elasticity in the skin on your face. The best candidates for this type of surgery are between the ages of 40 and 60, but you can get a facelift if you're younger or older than this.

Our team recommends you quit smoking before you undergo surgery to ensure the best results. Quitting smoking also diminishes some of the procedure's risks and allows you to heal more efficiently.

Expectations are something you should discuss with our team before your facelift. You must have realistic expectations of the procedure. Although our team provides impressive results, they can only eliminate some signs of aging.

Your provider evaluates your overall health and expectations during your initial consultation. If you're in good health and understand the procedure's risks, our team moves on to schedule your life-changing facelift.

If you'd like to learn about a facelift, don't hesitate to call our office at 601-693-7742 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Thornton or Dr. Elliott. You can also request an appointment on the website.
