Should You Consider a Facelift After Weight Loss?


You have worked hard and have lost a lot of weight after years of eating a healthy diet and hitting the gym three times a week. But, unfortunately, the battle may not be over. When we lose fat, the skin still remains, and it can affect your face in ways that might even make you regret losing weight. A facelift may be the next step to consider!

Why Consider a Facelift?

After all of the hard work you have done and the positive changes you have made, it doesn’t quite seem fair that now you are left with some unwanted effects. Here’s what a facelift can do for you.

Younger people have elasticity to their skin and it promptly snaps back into place after a lot of weight has been lost. However, as we age we lose that elasticity, and weight loss can result in sagging skin and deep folds in the face. Your mouth may look permanently downturned because of this sagging, and it may also make you look like you are always tired. You may also notice a double chin, drooping jowls, and a “turkey neck.”

A facelift can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and it can be performed at any age as long as you are in good health. Your surgeon will remove that excess skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and reset the skin at a higher level. Liposuction may be performed to get rid of excess fat. You may want to combine a facelift with a brow lift, nose reshaping, fillers, or eyelid surgery — you and your surgeon can discuss your options and what combination of procedures might be right for you.

You deserve to celebrate all of your hard work and your weight loss, but you also deserve to look as good as you feel. If you feel like your skin is droopy and saggy after your weight loss, a facelift may be the answer – it will give you natural-looking results that will keep you looking young and healthy for years.
