Whether you're just starting to think about facial rejuvenation surgery or have been on the fence about a facelift for a while now, consider the three compelling reasons to get facelift surgery outlined here.

Is a facelift right for me?

Deciding to have cosmetic surgery is ultimately a personal choice that comes down to a number of factors, including the patient's desires, goals, and more. For patients considering facelift surgery, there are many variables to evaluate in determining whether the procedure may be right for them, such as their degree of facial aging, their ideal outcome, their overall health, and even their age. While many patients assume that facelift surgery is reserved for older men and women, patients as young as their 30s are turning to the many different types of facelifts and facial rejuvenation procedures available today to get a jump start on their anti-aging journey and potentially slow the progression of facial aging. To help decide whether you may be a good candidate for a facelift, scheduling a private consultation with Dr. Kelishadi can be a fantastic place to start. In the meantime, review these three common reasons for pursuing facelift surgery:

1. To help reverse unwanted signs of aging

For many people, simply restoring a more youthful appearance is reason enough to undergo facelift surgery. With a variety of techniques and types of facelifts available today, patients can address almost any unwanted sign of facial aging and regain a fresher and more youthful look. These may include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Deep facial folds
  • Lost volume in the face
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Hollow features
  • Constant frown
  • Tired or angry appearance
  • Drooping jowls
  • Bags under the eyes

2. To boost self-esteem

Looking and feeling like a more youthful version of yourself can be a major confidence booster, which can potentially have a positive impact on your career, your social life, your relationships, and your overall mental well-being.

3. To achieve the longest-lasting results possible

While nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, injectable fillers, and other minimally invasive or nonsurgical anti-aging treatments can certainly help reduce some signs of aging, they often require repeat treatment sessions and may not make as significant of improvements as can be achieved with cosmetic surgery. For the most dramatic and longest-lasting transformations possible, facelift surgery is often considered the gold standard.

Because every patient's situation, goals, and other characteristics are unique, their reasons for pursuing facelift surgery may also vary — but many patients agree that the opportunity to virtually turn back the clock, improve their confidence, and achieve a more youthful look that can last for a decade or longer are among the most compelling reasons to consider facelift surgery in Orange County, CA.
