Choosing to have a facelift is an important decision and one you don’t want to take lightly. Today, we are answering the top 4 questions that every candidate wants to know before having this amazing procedure.
Will I still look like me?
This is one of the most common questions asked during an initial facelift consultation. Naturally, patients have the fear of looking “pulled” or looking like another person once surgery is completed. This fear comes from bad facelifts that we see through the media or just in our day to day lives. At Utah Facial Plastics, our surgeons pride themselves on beautiful, natural results. Once healed from a facelift, our patients look like themselves, just more refreshed and well rested.
How long does a facelift last?
The longevity of a “lift” is different for a MACslift and a traditional facelift. With a MACslift, your result may last about 5-10 years versus having a traditional facelift, which typically lasts anywhere between 10-15 years. Your results should be natural and long lasting as long as your surgeon is addressing the deeper tissues beneath the skin (SMAS). No matter which facelift procedure you have, you will always look younger 5-15 years later than had you not had any lift at all.
Is a MACslift as good as a traditional facelift?
This question is tricky because facelifts are not a one-size-fits-all procedure. If an individual is wanting to tighten the lower face AND neck a MACSlift will not give you the best possible outcome, the traditional facelift would. This is why a consultation is vital. During your initial consultation, our surgeon will talk to you about your concerns and will discuss which procedure will best fit your needs.
The MACslift is a wonderful procedure, if you are the right candidate. Same goes with the traditional facelift.
Will I be glad I had a facelift?
Once patients are healed from their procedure, they can’t believe that they waited so long to have it done! We also hear that the recovery process was easier than they thought it would be. Our top Utah plastics surgeons always strive to give their patients the best possible outcome so they are as thrilled about their results as we are.
