The idea of a facelift may seem intimidating at first, and understandably so. The thought of the healing process, incisions, and temporary discomfort can seem overwhelming. However, constantly investing time and money into nonsurgical treatments can often be far more expensive, frustrating and less effective. Here are five signs that it might be time to consider saying goodbye to temporary fixes and consulting an expert facial plastic surgeon about a facelift.

1. Botox and Dermal Fillers Have Lost Their Magic

Are your injectable treatments no longer showing the results you want? You’ve been turning to Botox and fillers whenever signs of aging appear. Yet, despite your regular treatments and careful maintenance, the mirror no longer reflects the vibrant, youthful face you once saw. If Botox and fillers are no longer giving you that “wow” factor, it might be time to consider a facelift.

2. Loosening Skin Around Your Lower Face

Do you find yourself pinching the skin around your lower face, only to be met with a disappointing sag? Or worse, are you wondering where your jawline went? If loose skin has taken over, causing jowling and an overall aged look, you may want to consider a facelift to regain the contour of your youth.

3. Your Neck is Aging You

Is the appearance of your neck bothering you? Do you find yourself glaring at the stubborn skin fold under the chin? This is a clear sign that it’s time to make some additions to your skincare routine. A facelift can tighten the neck area, smoothing out folds and giving you a sleeker, more youthful look.

4. Your Cheeks Appear Hollow

Do your cheeks appear saggy, even after regular filler treatments? Do you feel as though they appear flat? Hollow cheeks can add years to your appearance, making you look older than you feel. A facelift can lift the cheeks, improve their contour and provide a fuller and smoother look to your face.  This vibrant look is what fillers alone would be hard pressed to achieve.

5. The Facelift Mirror Test

Be honest: how often do you look in the mirror and find yourself pulling your cheeks back or lifting the skin of your face? If you frequently pull your hair back to create a more “snatched” look and wish your face would stay like that, it might be a strong sign that you’re ready for a facelift. This procedure can give you the lifted, youthful, appearance you desire without the need for constant adjustments in the mirror.
