Facelifts are one of the most popular cosmetic surgery options available today. If you’re dissatisfied with your facial appearance, a facelift may be the best way for you to achieve the look you want.

But what specifically does the procedure involve? Let’s take a look at what you can expect when you go in for a facelift.

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, that improves or decreases signs of aging in your face and neck. Those include:

• Sagging in the middle of your face
• Bags under your eyes
• Crow’s feet
• Jowls
• Double chins

There are a ton of factors that play into a person developing these different problems. Some may be genetic, and others are due to environmental issues or stress. Regardless of why your face looks prematurely aged, you can dial back that aging with a facelift.
However, you also need to be aware of what a facelift won’t do.

It will not change your fundamental appearance, as it deals more with skin than bone reconstruction, and it won’t stop the aging process.
Lastly, you have either surgical or non-surgical options to complete your facelift. If you’re nervous about going under the knife, non-surgical facelift procedures are right for you. Bear in mind, however, that they’ll take longer to show results than surgical options.
