Why a Facelift May be Right for You

For many men and women, visible signs of aging — including wrinkles, deep facial folds, fine lines, volume loss in the cheeks and saggy jowls — can be a source of low self-confidence. Fortunately, today’s medical advancements offer solutions to these concerns and more.

The facelift is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure that has come a long way in recent years. In fact, people in their 40s are seeing the benefits of a facelift as not only a corrective solution, but also as a preventative procedure.

Aging is inevitable. But looking old or worn doesn’t have to be!

Genetics, environmental damage and simply the passing of the years can contribute to aging of the face and skin. A facelift is a highly-effective solution for addressing loose skin on the face, excess fat on the neck (also known as “turkey neck”), deep facial folds, sagging cheeks that have lost volume, jowls in the cheek area and a loss of facial contour — which is a key component to a youthful appearance.

Dr. Andrew Lofman has been specializing in facelifts in Michigan for 15 years and makes it his top priority to provide patients with a natural-looking result, a subtle refresh rather than an obvious “done” look (which can make you appear older looking).

The procedure itself is performed in a matter of hours on an outpatient basis. During your facelift, Dr. Lofman tightens and repositions facial muscle and tissue and removes excess skin where needed through very small incisions in the hairline or behind the ears (where they are discreet). It’s important to understand that your facelift is customized to your unique needs — there is no cookie-cutter solution. The best part is your results should last nearly a decade or longer.

If you are in good overall health, over the age of 40 and a nonsmoker without medical conditions that could complicate the healing process, you may be a good candidate for a facelift. It’s also key to have realistic expectations and be prepared for the recovery process, which is about six weeks.
