If you’re not looking as young as you’re feeling, facial plastic surgery could be the ticket to a younger you. Ageing causes loss of skin elasticity and relaxed muscle tone of the face and neck, and anyone over the age of 35 can begin to experience this. For women, the process often accelerates after menopause, and by your 50’s it will be far more noticeable. No amount of skin creams or exercise can prevent or reverse this – But Dr. Newlon, an experienced, highly skilled, board certified facial plastic surgeon, can. And the sooner you get started, the more likely it is that your younger look can be maintained for many years.
If you have concerns about your upper face and eyes, Dr. Newlon may suggest a total facial rejuvenation (as shown in the patient pictured below.) A Browlift can address a sagging brow, while an Eyelid Lift takes care of loose skin and bags around the eyes. And less invasive procedures, such as Laser Resurfacing or Botox injections, can also help to reverse the visible effects of growing older.
When Should I Get a Facelift?
A facelift typically looks better and lasts longer when you choose to have the procedure done at a younger age. Thus, it’s wise to stay on top of facial aging process with smaller procedures done at intervals. Still, a skillfully rendered facelift will look natural at any age, provided your surgeon has an artistic touch and the highly honed surgical skills required. One thing’s for sure—facial rejuvenation is a worthwhile investment at the peak years of your working career, and can greatly enhance the quality of your social life at any age. Because looking good goes hand-in-hand with feeling good, the confidence that comes with your renewed, youthful appearance, quite possibly, will be the thing about you that impresses your friends and co-workers the most.
A Few Words on the Cost of Facelift Procedures
If you’re worried that what you need might be more than you can afford, don’t be. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that a facelift now could be cheaper and more effective than repeated Botox and filler injections in the long run. Keep in mind that surgical facial rejuvenation can be a very worthwhile investment; and, your most effective tool for turning back the clock. Your money is likely better spent on this long-lasting solution, than on expensive creams, make-up and treatments that cannot eliminate sagging, excess skin. It’s an investment in you, and one that will pay dividends for years to come!
