While there’s not a certain age for a facelift, patients over 50 begin considering a cosmetic surgical procedure, facelift, to refresh their look. With the natural-skin ageing process, several changes happen to the skin’s condition, which may affect how a patient feels about their looks.
In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery shares why patients over 50 choose to undergo facelift surgery.
To look refreshed and less tired
As early as 40 years old, people may experience significant physical changes in the face and body. It becomes more prominent as they approach 50 due to loss of skin laxity, resulting in sagging skin, loss of volume, and developing wrinkles and jowls.
Facelift surgery can address these signs of ageing by lifting the sagging facial skin, trimming excess skin and wrinkles, and repositioning deep layers of the face into a youthful position. Patients look fresher, younger and less tired, making them more satisfied about their looks.
Non-surgical treatments don’t work anymore
While facial creams and non-surgical facelift procedures help temporarily plump skin or smooth wrinkles, people over 50 may need to correct deep wrinkles, folds, marionette lines and other visible signs of ageing that some non-surgical treatments can’t achieve.
The common goals of patients, such as lifting sagging skin, restoring volume and eliminating deep lines, wrinkles and jowls, can all be achieved with facelift surgery.
Provide longer-lasting results
Depending on the type of facelift technique you have, the result can produce longer-lasting results than other anti-aging treatments. It may last between 7 to 15 years.
