Face the Facts: 5 Facts About Facelifts


Breaking Down Facts and Fiction About Facelifts

Facelift New JerseyHave you considered getting a facelift but heard some stories that have made you apprehensive? The media and specifically some Hollywood celebrities have given facelifts a bad reputation. We’re here to debunk some of those common misconceptions and tell you the real deal.

  1. Facelifts make your face look fake

The media loves to show us botched plastic surgeries or nightmare facelift results on Hollywood celebrities. However, this isn’t typical for most surgeries and those cases tend to be a result of a celebrity wanting a dramatic look against their surgeon’s advice. Truthfully, a properly performed facelift by a board-approved surgeon should never make you look unlike yourself. Your results should be subtle and make you look like a fresher, younger version of yourself, not someone else.

  1. Botox does the same thing

While Botox and other injectables can achieve incredible results, they are no substitute for a facelift. Botox is primarily used for smaller wrinkles like crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox cannot do anything about sagging skin or loss of muscle tone. Facelifts, however, can address both of those concerns. Facelifts also end up looking more natural than Botox which just tends to fill in the lines in your face.

  1. Facelifts are just for old people

Advanced age is not a requirement to qualify for a facelift procedure. Younger people are becoming more interested in anti-aging procedures to maintain their youthful appearance before it starts to fade. In the long run, this means there’s potentially less work involved for the surgeon to provide desired results.

  1. Facelifts are only for women

Aging knows no gender. Men are becoming more and more comfortable seeking surgical options to combat signs of aging.

  1. Recovery is extremely long and painful

Previously, the facelift recovery process actually was long and painful, taking around 6 to 8 weeks to fully recover. Today, however, thanks to breakthroughs in techniques and technology recovery is much less painful and is much shorter. If you follow your doctor’s directions, you should be able to enjoy your younger-looking face after a couple weeks.

We hope that these facts have helped ease some of your fears about facelift procedures. If you have more questions or would like to schedule a consultation to chat about anti-aging options, give us a call at 908-879-2222.
