Some people accept the fact that they are getting older. They don’t like it, but they deal with it. Other people are more proactive. They realize that there is nothing that they can do to completely stop themselves from getting older, but they are not going to allow the aging process to win without at least putting up a fight. If this sounds like you, then you may want to consider getting a facelift.
Recent research has shown that when it comes to making you look younger, modern facelift techniques actually do what they claim. In fact, researchers have proven that this procedure has the potential to make you look years younger.
A study was done with a group of men who were around 57 years old. Each of them underwent a facelift. According to the findings that were posted in a respected plastic and reconstructive surgery journal, the majority of these men felt happy with their appearance. They felt that having the procedure improved their self-esteem and gave them a higher quality of life. They also commented on the positive reactions that other people had to their new appearance. When these participants were asked how much younger they felt their facelift made them look, on average, the men said 12 years.
In many cases, a facelift is a part of a customized plastic surgery procedure. While the facelift itself is designed to address the mid-face, a person may also have a brow lift, eyelid surgery and/or a neck lift to complete the entire look. It all depends on the unique situation.
