As we age, our skin can begin to sag, and lines and wrinkles can begin to form, making us look older than we feel. Many individuals turn to the facelift procedure in Brandon to help combat these signs of aging for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Read on to learn more about facelift surgery and how it can benefit you.

When is the Right Time for a Facelift?

While some people may be wondering whether or not it is the right time for a facelift, you will most likely know that a facelift is right for you when your self-confidence is being affected by sagging skin and deep lines. If nonsurgical treatments don’t seem to be cutting it anymore, a facelift can help.

Overall, there isn’t a “right” age for getting a facelift. As long as you are in good health, just about anyone with sagging skin and lines can be a candidate. Just be sure to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for your consultation.

What to Expect During Recovery

For the first few days of your recovery, be sure to have someone else around the house to help you. Recovery usually takes about 10 days, and stitches are removed after the first week. Most people can return to week after about two weeks. Be sure to get plenty of rest and be sure to follow Dr. Shienbaum’s post-op instructions.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results of facelift surgery usually last for years before a touch-up is needed. To ensure that your results are long-lasting, be sure to stay out of the sun, wear sunscreen regularly, and follow a healthy diet.
