Facelift for Women over 50: 3 Reasons Surgery Beats Nonsurgical Treatments

More and more women over 50 are deciding now is the time for rejuvenation. Facelifts, one of the most popular and world-famous cosmetic procedures available today, can offer life-changing results to boost your confidence and make you feel like you again.

Many of our patients over 50 come to Desert Bloom Plastic Surgery looking for permanent age-reversing results. While non-surgical treatments can address an impressive range of aging concerns, their results are generally more subtle and fade with time. Facelifts, on the other hand, take a more holistic approach to reshape, refine, and sculpt aging skin and tissue for results that can last a lifetime. What’s more, modern advances in surgical techniques and technology provide stunning, natural-looking rejuvenation you’ll love, after a single procedure—no need to schedule follow-up treatment sessions.

In this article, we’re going to cover some of the reasons women over 50 should consider a surgical facelift to ensure lasting, significant facial rejuvenation. Dr. Wallin is an expert board-certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in the intricate and delicate field of cosmetic surgery on the neck, head, and face. Working with us at Desert Bloom Plastic Surgery means working with the best of the best. If you have any further questions, please give our St. George, Utah, office a call at (435) 627-8150 today.

1. Facelift Techniques are Better than Ever

In popular culture, facelifts often get a bad rap. Many of our patients worry about their results looking like infamous facelift recipients such as Joan Rivers. But, facelifts have come a long way in the last two decades. New techniques can provide incredible, natural-looking results that even your closest friends and loved ones may be unable to pinpoint. You’ll just look like your best self.

Patients no longer need to worry about spending days in the hospital, or trying to conceal visible scars. Just a few hours after your procedure, you can head home. Within a week or two, you’ll most likely notice a considerable improvement to your appearance and smoother, tighter skin around your neck, jawline, and cheeks. There’s no need to hide away for months or get concerned your face won’t be able to have a full range of expressions. Nowadays, you can get back out into the world and enjoy your transformation and boost in confidence to the fullest.

2. Getting Rejuvenation Right on the First Try

Another benefit of choosing a surgical facelift with Dr. Wallin is getting considerable results on the first try. Working with an expert, experienced facial plastic surgeon makes it possible for your first facelift to be your one and only. Many older women around the country get misled by advertising online and in magazines into assuming the continuous use of non-surgical products can provide the results they are looking for.

Of course, depending on the extent of visible aging and your desired results, these treatments can provide beautiful results for the right patient if carefully injected by an expert. But, if you really want to take on the most severe signs of aging—injectable treatments alone simply won’t cut it. Facelifts, however, are clinically proven to tackle these symptoms and deliver long-lasting, natural-looking, reliable results.

3. Address Aging in Your Neck

As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic. These changes can lead to the skin around your neck and chin sagging, in many cases leading to jowls. Especially for older women who have recently gotten back into fitness, the effects of weight loss can inadvertently increase these signs of aging.

A facelift is the only proven surgical technique that can quickly and efficiently eliminate jowls and return your neckline to what it once was. During your procedure, Dr. Wallin will carefully sculpt your neck area, removing excess skin that creates pouches and looseness.

Schedule a Consultation

When it comes to facial rejuvenation, the best way to truly determine which procedures and/or treatments are best for you is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. During your no-obligation consultation, Dr. Wallin will listen to your concerns and guide you toward next steps that will help achieve your goals.

Non-surgical options offer a quick fix, but aren’t permanent and often require follow-up treatments. Facelift surgery, on the other hand, provides long-lasting results. No matter what you determine is best for you, we can help you get the best results possible.
