How to Maximize the Results of Your Facelift
Facelift surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country, and it’s not hard to imagine why. Facelifts make you look energized, brighten your face, and smooth your skin.
The procedure can take up to 10 years of aging off your appearance. Those amazing results unfortunately won’t last forever, but it is possible for you to make the most of them.
Have a Regular Skin Care Routine
This is going to be one of the most important things you can do for yourself to maximize your facelift results. Hopefully you already have some sort of skincare routine in place right now, but it becomes even more necessary after you have the procedure. You should be washing your face at least two times a day with a good cleanser and using moisturizer and sunscreen every day. Using quality cleansing products will really help; the higher the quality, the better. If you need some ideas on the right products for you and your skin, check with your surgeon or a skincare specialist.
Develop a Healthy Lifestyle
Your face not only shows how you’re looking on the outside, it also shows how you’re feeling on the inside. When you’re feeling great, you’re looking great! You should be exercising regularly and eating well-balanced meals. Lots of water will help keep you hydrated so that your skin looks fresh. Vitamins will make sure you’re getting the right nutrients. Plenty of rest will help you look rested and brighter every day. By taking great care of yourself, you’ll be getting the most of your facelift.
Don’t Wait to Start
The sooner you get started on these routines, the better it will be for your facelift results. You can even start before your surgery so that the routine will be established by the time you’re recovered. Your surgeon will give you some ideas on how to get started during your patient consultation.
Be Open to Other Procedures
Your facelift results are not permanent. Your face will continue aging just like the rest of you. However, when the results start to fade, you won’t necessarily have to repeat the procedure. Other lift procedures, dermal fillers, and fat transfers are options for boosting your facelift so that you can maximize the results. These procedures can also be done at or around the same time as your facelift to boost the results right away. You can discuss all your options with your surgeon during your patient consultation.
