face lift Kalamazoo

The aging process can be hard on the skin of your face, causing the skin to wrinkle, lose its elasticity, and sag over time. Sun, stress, and genetics all exacerbate these signs of aging, and although a facelift cannot stop them or the aging process completely, it can take years off your face helping you to look younger for longer.

The Benefits of a Facelift 

Although aging may be a natural part of getting older, it is not something that many people look forward to. As the skin of the face begins to age, it loses its elasticity and starts to wrinkle and sag causing many people to report losing confidence and feeling unhappy with how they look. 

A facelift can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lift the skin to its position prior to sagging, and restore youthfulness and vitality to the face. Facelifts help people to enjoy the reflection they see in the mirror and to regain their self-confidence once more. For many people, having a facelift is about so much more than simply making themselves look younger. Patients frequently report that their facelift has helped them to feel more confident in all aspects of their lives, including at work and in their personal activities.  Often, it’s about matching their outside appearance with the vitality they still feel on the inside. 

A facelift can give patients the following benefits:

  • A more sculpted jawline without jowls or lax skin.
  • Better positioned facial muscles and tissues for a more youthful contour.
  • Reduced-fat pads to slim the face and neck.
  • A refreshed, alert, and bright-eyed appearance, particularly for patients whose facelift focuses on improving the upper face.
  • Removal of excess skin can tighten the features, reducing wrinkles and smoothing out fine lines.
  • A boost of confidence and self-esteem, which helps patients improve some of the professional and social aspects of their lives. They feel better about themselves and it translates to more confident interactions with coworkers and loved ones.

Facelift Recovery

Not every facelift is the same. The focus can be the mid and lower cheeks, jawline, and neck or may include the upper face, temple, and even the brow or forehead.  

During the facelift procedure, Dr. Scott Holley, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will discreetly hide any incisional scarring in the natural contours of your face, so that they are not noticeable after the procedure. The recovery time for a facelift can vary depending on the procedure you choose and your own healing cycle. However, in general, most patients can see a difference in how they look immediately after the surgery, with any residual swelling and bruising from the procedure becoming unnoticeable after 10-14 days or so.* 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift? 

If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions then a facelift procedure may be right for you: 

  • Do you try to hide your neck in turtlenecks or scarves because you don’t like how the skin sags? 
  • Do you feel self-conscious about the way your skin has sagged on your face? 
  • Do you dislike your reflection in the mirror because you feel your face makes you look much older than you are? 
  • Do you feel that your lack of confidence in your appearance is negatively impacting your personal life, relationships, or career?
  • Do you get asked if you are tired or angry when you feel perfectly fine? 

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, or would just like to know more about the facelift procedure to assess whether it is right for you, then book a consultation with Dr. Scott Holley today.
