There's a simple way to tell. Place your hands along the middle part of your jaw with your index fingers pointing upward and thumbs under the jaw and pull gently toward your ears. If you like the "taught" result, then you may be a candidate for a facelift.
Essentially the face ages in 5 ways:
- drooping tissue from loss of elasticity
- effects of gravity
- changes in the skin such as wrinkles and pigment changes
- volume loss and dynamic lines from overactive muscles
A facelift is really a blanket term for a variety of procedures. You can learn more about this procedure on our website. If you are interested in learning about facial treatment options like this, please contact us to book a consultation.
