4 PERKS OF A PREVENTATIVE FACE-LIFT
As we get older, the structures of our faces naturally begin to weaken and unfortunately, things will droop and sag. The face lift has become one of the quintessential cosmetic surgery procedures: often, when people think cosmetic surgery, the face lift is one of the first things to come to mind. While most people wait until a later age before considering a face lift, it turns out that it may be even more effective in preventing a youthful look if done at a younger age. Here are the four perks of having a preventative face lift.
When you have a face lift at a younger age – before any of the drooping or sagging even begins to set in – the treatment can actually help to preserve the current structure of the face so that the aging process can be dramatically slowed down.
The muscles and tissues in the face are significantly stronger, and therefore can act as a support mechanism for a face lift. This extra support won’t be there as strongly when a face lift is put off until a later age, at which point the muscles and tissues will have naturally weakened.
Recovery from a face lift surgery is often much quicker when done earlier. The same is true for most cosmetic surgery procedures. At a younger age, your body is more able to recover quicker and heal itself more efficiently.
Your costs can be cut by avoiding the number of areas and problems that need to be addressed by your face lift. When waiting until an older age, several issues have already developed so more surgery will be required from your procedure.
If you think that you may benefit from a face lift, make sure to speak with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon for their professional opinion as to whether you would be a good candidate for the procedure.
