With the wide variety of cosmetic procedures and treatments available, it’s easy for misinformation and myths to surround different surgeries. This is especially true for popular aesthetic surgeries like facelifts.
A facelift is cosmetic surgery done to minimize the signs of aging on the face. A facelift removes loose skin and tightens underlying structures to produce enhanced facial contours and profiles. In this post, we’ll be exploring and debunking common facelift myths, so you have a better idea if a facelift is right for you.
Facelifts Are Only for Older People
While facelifts are commonly taken advantage of by older people, facelifts can be utilized by any adult looking to address the issues a facelift corrects. Loose skin and jowls are common with aging, but it can also occur related to genetics, weight loss, or even certain medical conditions.
Facelifts Eliminate Signs of Aging
Facelifts are designed to remove and reduce signs of aging on the face. However, a facelift cannot treat certain skin issues like sun damage or hyperpigmentation. Also, while a facelift can “turn back the clock” on your skin, a facelift can’t pause the aging process. Eventually, your skin will begin to sag again, but likely not to the degree it would have been without a facelift.
Facelifts Are Only for Women
The idea that cosmetic surgeries are for or designed for women is an old but long-lasting misconception. While it is true that cosmetic treatments are often marketed toward women, men can also take advantage of most cosmetic procedures with the same level of success as a woman. This includes a facelift.
