Facelifts Do Work
At first this seems restating the obvious, but there are legitimate concerns raised about whether patients really looked younger from these procedures or just different. Or whether these surgeries only smoothed and didn’t actually rejuvenate.
One important thing I always emphasize with my facelift patients was not part of the study. More than just looking younger, these procedures make patients look happier and healthier. I do not believe there is any loss of beauty when a man or woman ages – so long as they don’t get lines which makes them look unhappy, sad, angry, or mean when they do not feel that way. And a facelift works for those issues in addition to making patients look younger.
