Should I Get a Face Lift? June 13, 2011 Cole One of the most common questions we get in our office from our patients is, “Do I need a facelift?” Many women and men are using a variety of methods to achieve a more youthful appearance. Botox and other injectable fillers are becoming more popular – these non-surgical treatments are great if you have frown lines, crow’s feet, and furrows between the eyes, especially in your 30s and early 40s. However, if you – like many people – suffer from loose, sagging skin on your jawline and neck, then a face lift is one of the most effective procedures available to achieve a more youthful look to your face. As we age, the contour lines in our faces become less defined. And, the wrinkles and furrows that result from age-related sagging skin become increasingly pronounced. With a face lift from Cole Aesthetic Center, your loose skin can be tightened up for a more refreshed, rejuvenated look. A face lift tightens everything on the face from your cheekbones to your collarbones. The muscles in your face can be lifted as well, so that your face can develop a stronger, younger-looking contour. And Dr. Cole is an expert in elegant, natural results! If you are considering a facelift, you may be a good candidate if your facial skin is loose and sagging, particularly along the jaw line or under the chin. A facelift can correct many things to improve your appearance, including: Sagging in the midface Deep wrinkles below the lower eyelids Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth Fat on the cheeks or chin that has fallen or is displaced Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw – this is called a “turkey wattle” or “double chin.” Schedule a consultation with us – we can talk about your face, skin, and the outcome you’d like to achieve. A face lift may not be a standalone solution for the results you desire. As you discuss your options with Dr. Cole, he may recommend that you combine the face lift with a brow lift or an eye lid lift. He may also incorporate injectable fillers or laser treatments. The goal in all of this is to help you refresh your face and give your appearance a natural youthfulness. The professionals at Cole Aesthetic Center will discuss all your options with you to put together a plan to achieve the look that you want. We look forward to seeing you – schedule your appointment today.
