Once a taboo subject to talk about in the mainstream media, face lifts are getting more attention as celebrities and non-celebrities come clean and open up about their enhancements. While the term “face lift” has been around for decades, it can sometimes be misleading. Many often lump all facial enhancement procedures under that phrase, but there are many options for men and women alike that can help change your appearance without a single incision.
Cosmetic procedures have evolved, and now there are more and more choices when it comes to wanting to alter your looks. So how do you really know what those options are, what you should be asking for, and most importantly what you really need? Most importantly, ask your doctor! Many people go in asking for a face lift, and after discussions with their physician learn they might be able to accomplish their goals with botox, laser treatments or just a new skin care regimen. But for those who do decide on surgery, there are still plenty of options and procedures to choose from.
Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Charles Verheyden discusses the facts around face lifts and talks about some of the most common questions and requests.
So if you are thinking about a face lift, or any cosmetic procedure, schedule a consultation with your doctor discuss exactly what it is you want. They can help you decide what is the best option for you.
