Most people would agree with the fact that their face is the most important part of their identity. It is what sets them apart from just about every single person on the planet. Proof of the fact that people are interested in the way that their face looks can be seen by the amount of interest people have in websites that allow them to find other people on the planet who share their facial features. People want to find their doppelgänger because they want to find someone else who shares their face or who shares this essential part of their identity.
The problem arises when a person’s face does not reflect the way they feel on the inside. For example, a person may feel young, full of energy and vibrant. However, when they look at themselves in the mirror, they may see an individual who has a face that is a lot older than how they feel on the inside. When there is this disparity between how you look and how you feel, it affects your self-confidence. It affects your ability to have a social life. If a person constantly looks tired, droopy and worn out, they can actually repel the positive relationships they wish to attract.
For individuals who are in this circumstance and who want to do something to improve their appearance, a facelift may be the right procedure for them. The best way to determine whether or not you are a candidate for this age-defying procedure is by discussing the situation with our cosmetic surgeon. As he attempts to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for plastic surgery, he is going to examine different facets of your face.
For example, he is going to look at your skin elasticity. A good candidate for a facelift is going to have skin that is relatively flexible. This is because, during the procedure, your skin is pulled and stretched to improve or remove sagging. If your skin is not elastic, the results from the procedure may not be what you want.
Our surgeon is also going to look to see if you have loose skin or extra skin on your face. The best candidates for a facelift have extra skin that can be tightened. Having a good bone structure is key to a successful facelift. This is because your bone structure is what supports any of the adjustments our cosmetic surgeon will make during surgery.
Finally, a good candidate for a facelift is going to have good mental and physical health. This is the most important aspect of having the procedure performed. If you have good physical health, you’re going to heal faster. The recovery is going to be smoother, and you’re going to be happier with your results. Having good emotional health will allow you to set realistic goals for your facelift. Since you are internally happy with yourself, you’re going to be happy with the results.
