If you’re like many people, you probably have concerns about how your face looks as you get older. While there is no stopping the aging process, having a face lift performed by a cosmetic surgeon can drastically improve your appearance and the way you feel about yourself. In today’s youth-oriented society, a rejuvenated appearance can have an impact on many different aspects of your life. Keep reading to learn about the many benefits of getting a face lift.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of getting a face lift is the most obvious one: Your appearance will be improved. Face lifts can help you eliminate signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin. Some people decide to get face lifts because aging has given them a sad expression as facial skin loosens and sags. Getting a face lift can make you look younger and happier—and as a result, you will also feel younger and happier!
Visible signs of aging appear on everyone at some point, but some people start to look older before others. Premature aging can make you feel unhappy and less confident in your appearance, which can carry over into your overall self-esteem. If you feel disappointed or saddened every time you look in the mirror, getting a face lift from a cosmetic surgeon can greatly improve your outlook. After a face lift, you’ll be excited to look at yourself in the mirror again.
Many people who have had face lifts take the procedure as an opportunity to start over and lead a healthier lifestyle. With a newly rejuvenated appearance, you may feel more motivated to exercise, eat right, and take better care of your skin. Cosmetic surgery is not just skin deep, as its results can have a positive impact on more than just your aesthetic appearance.
The trained cosmetic surgeons at the Center for Facial Appearances are dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible for all of our Utah patients. Contact our offices at (877) 468-3056 to schedule a consultation and to learn more about which type of face lift is right for you.

Aging is a normal part of life, but that doesn’t mean your face has to give away how old you really are. Many people who wish to fight the signs of aging opt to have cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance. A face lift is just one of the procedures your cosmetic surgeon can perform to give you back your youthful look. As with any surgery, there is a period of recovery after you have a face lift. Keep reading to learn how to care for your skin after a face lift.
After you have a face lift performed, you will need to take good care of your skin in order to be comfortable and to ensure that your results are long-lasting. In the initial period after your procedure, use ice or cold compresses to help minimize any swelling. It’s also a good idea to sleep in an elevated position, as keeping your head above your heart will help decrease the potential for overnight swelling. Your doctor may recommend certain herbal supplements or medications to further decrease your swelling.
Cleaning and Moisturizing
Though you may experience some soreness following your cosmetic surgery, it is essential to keep your skin clean to aid in the healing process. Ask your cosmetic surgeon for recommendations on which cleansers are best for you. In general, it’s best to use non-abrasive, mild cleansers. You may even want to use astringent pads to clean sensitive areas without additional pressure. Use a non-comedogenic moisturizer after you wash to keep your skin moist and supple.
Practicing Ongoing Care
Once you have recovered from your face lift procedure, you should still practice good skin care habits. Be vigilant about wearing sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy outside. Remember to drink plenty of water, as hydrated skin will further contribute to your newly rejuvenated appearance.

A forehead lift, which is sometimes also called a brow lift, can dramatically reduce the signs of aging. Over time, it is natural for the brows and forehead to begin to sag. Since so many expressions are tied to how the forehead and brows are positioned, these changes can make you look tired, grumpy, and older. Here are some common problems that many people seek to correct by having this kind of cosmetic surgery:
Many patients who go to their cosmetic surgeons requesting an eyelid lift actually need a forehead lift. The downward shift of skin from a sagging forehead often presents as droopy eyelids. If your upper lids look swollen or if they are sagging across your eyes, making them look smaller, a forehead lift could be the right procedure to correct your problem.
Deep Forehead Wrinkles
Forehead lift surgery can help ease deep forehead wrinkles. During the lift procedure, the skin will be pulled taut again so that the appearance of wrinkles is diminished. Horizontal wrinkles that run across your forehead are the ones that are usually most improved by a forehead lift.
As collagen and elastin break down in the skin due to aging, it is common for sagging to occur. This sagging will create the appearance of excess skin on your forehead. During a forehead lift, your cosmetic surgeon can cut away this excess skin to give your forehead a tight, toned appearance again. This type of skin-tightening procedure turns back the hands of time and makes you look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside.
Forehead lifts are just one of the procedures our cosmetic surgeons offer at the Center for Facial Appearances. Which procedure will deliver the results you want? Make an appointment for a consultation to discuss your options with our cosmetic surgeons. We have locations conveniently located in Sandy and Salt Lake City. Call (877) 468-3056 today.
