When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see or do you miss the younger, firmer face that used to look back at you? Unfortunately, nothing can stop the aging process. But according to Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel, cosmetic surgery – such as a facelift – can reverse some of the ravages of time.
Sure, you can buy the best creams available to diminish wrinkles. But let’s face it…anti-aging creams can only do so much. They can’t reverse the saggy skin, which is where plastic surgery by your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon can make a substantial and relatively quick difference.
Age, sun exposure and genetics all cause the skin to wrinkle and sag. When you’re younger, fatty tissues are evenly distributed throughout your face, resulting in a smooth, round facial appearance. Over time, however, the skin sags and produces progressively prominent folds around the chin, jawline and neck.
Have you considered getting a facelift?
Getting a facelift will not only improve your facial appearance, it also improves the contour and profile of the neck, which can make you look five to ten years younger.
Facelift surgery by your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon can turn back the clock on your appearance in several other different ways, including:
- Tightening facial muscles. The underlying structures of your face tend to weaken and sag with age. Before repairing your loose skin, we’ll tighten and rearrange this underlying structure into a better configuration, which helps the results of your face lift to last much longer.
- Repairing loose skin. Sagging skin will be carefully trimmed and tightened to restore a more youthful, natural look.
- Improving facial contours. A mid facelift helps restore a smoother look to the cheeks and lower eyelids, while a lower facelift creates a more attractive jawline contour, eliminating jowls and smoothing out the neck area.
So why is spring the perfect time to schedule your facelift?
As with any invasive procedure, the patient needs to designate a proper amount of time for recovery, and some procedures require more than others. This is why planning is key when it comes to being ready for summer. Because patients should avoid sun exposure for several weeks following their facelift procedure, now is the time to make your appointment.
If you want to look your very best this summer, time is of the essence. Call Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel today to schedule your facelift so you have plenty of time to recover properly before facing summer fearlessly!
