At some point in your life, you’ll look in the mirror and realize that you have already lost your youthful appearance. The radiant glow on your face has been replaced by fine lines and wrinkles that add years to your real age. It can be frustrating to see these signs of aging, especially when they come earlier than expected. Here at our Boston plastic surgery practice, we help patients regain their youthful look as well as their confidence through a facelift. But before you get too excited, there are things you have to consider and questions you need to ask yourself first.
Why do I want a facelift?
A facelift can improve your appearance and boost your confidence, but it will not change your life completely. You have to be aware that this plastic surgery procedure can improve your body image and make you feel more beautiful, but it is not meant to give you a new life. You have to know why you want a facelift. Whatever your reason is, it is important that you already feel good about yourself and you just need an enhancement.
What are my expectations?
There are things a facelift can and cannot do. It can enhance your beauty, but not make you look like someone else. Having realistic expectations is important so as to have satisfying results.
Am I emotionally ready for a facelift?
If you are currently going through emotional turbulence, it is best to postpone any plastic surgery plans. Right after a facelift, you have to undergo a recovery phase. If you are not emotionally prepared, you won’t feel any better. Swelling and bruising during recovery will only make matters worse.
