When to Consider a Facelift in Chicago
August 7, 2017
The aging process has an uncanny way of taking its toll on your face. As you get older, you will develop the tell-tale signs of aging that unfortunately may reveal how old you really are. If you live in the Chicago, Rockford or surrounding area and want to take steps to reclaim a youthful look, you may want to seriously consider a facelift performed by Dr. Pryor at Transformations Plastic Surgery.
Reasons to Get a Facelift
What are the specific reasons for why people get a facelift? The most obvious reason centers on reclaiming a youthful appearance. After your procedure, you could look anywhere from five to 15 years younger than you really are. Your skin is more toned and your overall appearance is younger and firmer.
However, some people also get facelifts to reverse the effects that come with losing weight or stopping certain lifestyle habits like smoking. Smoking can cause your skin to age and sag prematurely. Likewise, when you lose weight, you may be left with saggy skin on your face and neck. You could get the toned, firm facial appearance you want by getting a facelift. You also may feel more confident about the way you look after the procedure.
How is a Facelift Done?
The procedure is completely personalized for the patient. Depending on your wants and needs, our surgeon may tighten the skin and muscles to ease the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other blemishes. He may also remove excess skin and other tissue. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient.
A facelift does involve a recovery period. It is important that you keep all of your appointments with our surgeon to ensure that your face is healing properly. You should take it as easy as possible and follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results.
Who Can Get a Facelift?
This procedure is not for everyone, which is why we screen patients carefully before doing the surgery. Generally speaking, good candidates for the procedure are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results.
In short, a facelift could help you look younger and feel more confident.
