As we age, our bodies can go through some unwelcome changes. Our faces, in particular, are often the hardest hit due to their constant exposure to aging elements. There are many preventative measures we can take to keep our faces looking young, but eventually, time catches up with us.
In addition to the various medspa offerings we have, such as fillers and injectables, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery offers a selection of different surgical procedures that can help correct any issues you are having with your face, including a facelift and mini facelift. Here are four signs that it might be time to consider a facelift.
1. Need a Confidence Boost
If you look in the mirror and no longer recognize the person looking back at you, it might be time to consider a facelift. You should look as young and vivacious as you feel on the inside, and if your face does not reflect that, it could take a toll on your overall confidence. A facelift could give your confidence a boost and improve the way you feel each day.
2. Deep Wrinkles and Signs of Aging
Developing wrinkles from too much UV exposure or repeated muscular movements in your face add up over time. There are ways to slow down their development, but eventually, wrinkles will get deeper. A facelift or mini facelift is a great way to turn back the clock and smooth out your features.
3. Fillers Aren’t Doing the Trick
Dermal fillers and injectable touch-ups work well on skin that still has much of its natural elasticity. As we age, our skin loses some of that volume and skin will start to sag and wrinkle at a faster rate. If injectables cease to provide the results you seek, it may be time to consider a facelift.
4. Sagging Skin
As we age, it is only natural that our skin starts to sag. Production of collagen and hyaluronic acid starts to slow and gravity takes its toll. Sagging skin isn’t just a cause of aging but also weight gain. When we lose a lot of weight that skin usually doesn’t retract along with the neck and face and needs surgical help.
