Deciding Whether a Facelift is Right For You

Deciding Whether a Facelift is Right For You

Aging, sun damage, even smoking take their toll and cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear on your face. While non-surgical procedures can provide results for many, eventually a facelift may be the only real way to address deeper wrinkles and lines.

At Laughlin Plastic Surgery in Annapolis, Maryland, Dr. Laughlin and his team deliver exceptional facelift results, for semi-permanent, long-lasting results that can’t be beat.

Using one or more of these alternatives may give you the results you want for a while, but eventually aging will catch up and you’ll need to decide if a facelift is right for you. Only a complete facelift can fully address sagging, deep-set wrinkles, and other obvious signs of aging. 

Why choose a facelift?

There are plenty of facial treatments designed to make your face look younger, fuller, and fresher. However, full facelifts continue to be the most popular option for people seeking a permanent facial rejuvenation. 

Facelifts have come a long way from the days when they were used as a punchline for aging actresses or celebrities with stretched features and perpetually amazed expressions. The process has been refined over and over, and a skilled surgeon like Dr. Laughlin can smoothly reverse time and give you the appearance you crave with a single procedure.

Modern facelifts focus on ensuring your skin fits smoothly and evenly across your facial structure, without uncomfortable tautness or visible sagging. Your facelift will be tailored to take into account the specifics of your life and how different factors have affected the elasticity and texture of your skin.

A full facelift allows you to achieve long-lasting results in a single procedure, getting rid of sagging skin and deep-seated wrinkles and restoring a younger healthier look.
