Have you done extensive research on facelift, but feel on the fence about whether to move forward with the surgery? Dr. Joyesh Raj, a respected facelift surgeon serving the Cleveland area, has you covered. In this post, he reveals three signs that suggest you could benefit from facelift.

1. You have noticeably saggy skin and tissues in your lower face and neck.

The first sign that you could benefit from facelift is that you have noticeably loose, sagging skin and tissues in your lower face and neck. This loose, lax skin may obscure your jawline or the area where the corners of your mouth meet your jaw. Your cheeks may also appear as if they have “fallen” from their normal youthful position.

Try placing your fingers in front of your ears and gently pulling up and back on your skin. If you like what you see with this maneuver, it suggests that facelift might be right for you. Facelift involves the removal of redundant skin and tightening of tissues and skin in the lower face and neck to create more elegant facial contours.

2. Your appearance is affecting your confidence.

Another sign it might be time for facelift is that you feel dissatisfied, discouraged or self-conscious of your appearance. Perhaps you are a naturally energetic and vibrant person, but noticeable signs of aging are giving you a perpetually sad, tired or angry expression. By rejuvenating your facial appearance, facelift can help you look as young and confident as you feel.

Note that the best facelift candidates seek out surgery because of their own motivations — they are not persuaded by anyone else’s desires. If you are receiving outside pressure to rejuvenate your appearance, it would be wise to hold off on getting treatment.

3. Other cosmetic treatments are not providing the anti-aging results you want.

Sometimes non-surgical treatments can temporarily minimize signs of aging and create smoother, more youthful skin. However, there comes a point where these treatments no longer provide the desired results, or they become too costly or inconvenient. If you have discovered that anti-aging treatments such as Botox or fillers are not giving you the rejuvenation you want, or the inconvenience or expense of these treatments is too much to bear, it might be time to schedule a facelift consultation.
