Face Lift Makes you Look Younger True or Not?
Face Lift Makes you Look Younger is the question most Facelift patients ask themselves and their surgeon. Having a facelift in Thailand is a great way to rejuvenate your look and turn back the clock on aging.Patients who have undergone a facelift rate themselves as looking an average of 12 years younger after surgery, according to a study by Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The patients were highly satisfied with their results. The “average subjective reduction in apparent age” was 11.9 years, with a range of 0 to 27½ years. Ninety-seven percent of patients said the results met their expectations. Forty percent rated the results even better than expected
But, you may wonder just how much younger it can make you look.
A 2012 study by Dr Nitin Chauhan, a plastic surgeon from the University of Toronto had medical students estimate the age of patients in their before and after photos.
Published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery journal, the study revealed facial surgery lowers the estimated age of patients by around six to eight years.
Not only that, but the age the students guessed patients to after surgery was, in fact, an average of nine years less than the patients’ actual age. Most patients were believed to be a year or two younger than their actual age in their before shots.
While this is just a rough estimate and does not work for everyone, it gives some indication of what you can expect to see in the mirror after you have recovered.
This difference can depend on the surgeon and the procedures you undertake, however, but you can rest assured that the surgeons at Phuket Plastic Surgery Insitute are well qualified and their work is sure to leave you impressed.
You may have a different goal for your facelift, wanting to look less tired or more refreshed or simply better for your age. A holiday abroad combined with your surgery will help you look more relaxed, too!
However, for best results, you should make sure you protect your skin when you are in the sun and maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime.
Your surgeon will also be able to work with you to determine the best course of action as everyone’s needs and faces are unique and require an individualised opinion.
