When age comes knocking, there’s a number of ways you can slam it shut in it face. A facelift is one of the most comprehensive ways you can do so. In this procedure, a surgeon takes care of the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and saggy bits of skin.
Facelift can range from simple, non-invasive ‘lunchtime’ procedures to more complicated surgical face jobs. Using a simple facelift, you can get rid of anything from midface sagging and marionette lines to double chins and droopy facial muscles.
Facelift surgery In India?
Thousands of people over the world have embraced facelift surgery as a means to a rejuvenated, younger-looking face. India is no stranger to the procedure either; one (closer) look at the stars of Bollywood should tell you, all you need to know about the desi popularity of facelift.
And it is not all celebrities either—more and more Indian women are stepping beyond the stigma and embracing the facelift as a way of everyday life.
Before we get to the all-important Surgical vs. Non-Surgical debate though, let us take a closer look at the facelift, and what it can do for you.
Can I Benefit From A Facelift?
There are no hard and fast rules about who needs a facelift; if you feel that your looks do not really reflect your youthful outlook on life or your high energy and passion, you can go in for a facial rejuvenation procedure.
When facial sagging and excess skin brought on by the years start affecting your social life, it might be time to go under the knife. Facelift is especially popular for making people look younger by 10 to 15 years; a good deal, in most people’s books.
Generally, people go in for facelifts when they experience one or more of the following:
- Skin starting to sag around the mid-face area or jaw line
- Deep creases showing up your face, connecting the nose with the corners of the mouth (called nasolabial folds)
- Saggy skin increases in the neck area
- A ‘double chin’ forming because of fat deposits under the chin and jaw
- Losing facial muscle tone, and formation of jowls
If you show any of these effects, you can go in for a procedure with an experienced surgeon. It helps if you’re in good health, and have realistic expectations as far as results go. Ultimately, the choice is up to you; no one else knows your body like you do, or your desires.
Surgical Facelift Vs. Non-Surgical Procedures
Apart from the actual surgical procedures, there also exist certain stopgap non-invasive faceliftremedies such as Botox injections. These serve as fillers that cover up minor sagging of skin on the face and the neck. While these are shorter procedures—that often only last an hour or so—they do not have the long-lasting effects of surgical facelift.
If you have significant sagging, loss of muscle tone, and loose skin, your best bet is a proper facelift surgical procedure that takes care of these, and offers longer-lasting effects.
