It wasn’t all that long ago that facelifts were thought of as something for mature individuals — 50s, 60s and beyond. Now, people in their 40s, 30s and even 20s are looking into different types of facelifts. So, why the change? Let’s find out!
Facelifts aren’t just for mature individuals; even people in their 20s can benefit from facial rejuvenation.
Prejuvenation vs. Rejuvenation
The old approach to anti-aging was rejuvenation; wait for signs of aging to develop, then respond. Now, the approach is prejuvenation; take steps to prevent signs of aging from developing for as long as possible. Getting mini facelifts or a PDO thread lift allows people to stop fine lines and wrinkles from taking hold in the first place.
More Options Than Ever Before
Innovation is the name of the game. In plastic surgery, new treatments are developing all the time. The PDO thread lift and mini face lift mentioned above are just two newer approaches that help turn back the hands of time without going for the full facelift. These newer approaches tend to have a shorter recovery period and are often done in office.
Avoiding the Windblown Effect
As we get older, it isn’t just that our skin becomes laxer — we actually lose volume. This is what causes the windblown effect we associate with older facelifts. When you get a lift at a younger age, your surgeon can work with your natural volume for a better look.
