Some of us are blessed with good genes when it comes to aging. Unfortunately, even the luckiest among us are likely to reach a point where skincare and cosmetics just aren’t enough to hide the visible signs of aging anymore. There are several signs, both physical and emotional, that can tell you when it may be time to take more dramatic measures to look as good as you feel.
First, there are obvious physical signs. Can you grab the loose skin at the sides of your face? No non-surgical treatment can get rid of loose or sagging skin, but a facelift can restore your face to its natural, smooth contours. Maybe you’re noticing sagging around your eyes or your mouth, which a facelift alone won’t address. For an overall harmonious rejuvenation of the face, we recommend combining a facelift with an eyelid tuck, an endoscopic brow lift or a cheek enhancement. Often, facelift patients choose injectable fillers to keep their results looking fresh and natural.
Then, there are the emotional signs. How do you feel about your face? Does it give you pride and pleasure, or do you find yourself looking critically into the mirror? If you wear high-collared tops to hide your neck or you shy away from being photographed, you deserve to live better. Your mental well-being is as important as your physical health, and a facelift can restore more than just your youthful appearance – it can also give you a greater sense of control over your body and life, which means greater peace of mind for you.
Maybe you find yourself absently browsing the web for information about facelifts (perhaps even while you’re supposed to be doing something else?) When you come across Azul’s website, you’ll learn that Dr. Flaharty is a facial specialist who has performed more than 20,000 facial procedures – most of them facelifts and neck lifts. He’s a uniquely qualified expert and artist of the face, and will listen attentively to what you want from a facelift, and what concerns you may have. If you go into it with realistic expectations, a facelift can do wonders for rejuvenating not just your appearance, but your outlook on life.
There is no “ideal” age for a facelift – as long as you’re in good overall health, there’s no such thing as “too old” to take matters into your own hands and contact Azul for a free consult about how a facelift can restore your mind and body to the real “you.”
“I am a 66-year-old woman who was unhappy with the droopy skin on my face and neck. I met Dr. Patrick Flaharty when he performed an eyelift procedure on my husband. I was so impressed with my husband’s results that I had my own eyelids done as well as a brow lift. Later I had a face and neck lift, and I am thrilled with the way I now look. My husband and friends tell me I look younger, and I feel wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Flaharty and his caring and professional staff to anyone contemplating any cosmetic facial procedure. You won’t be disappointed, Dr. Flaharty is the best in his field.”
