Ellin Barkin, Kim Basinger, Angela Lansbury, Burt Reynolds, Gene Simmons and Suzanne Somers are among the thousands of celebrities who have had facelift surgeries performed. Designed to erase the years and take away those annoying lines and wrinkles, a facelift is for people from all walks of life. Whether you are a grandmother who wants to look a little younger or a twenty-something young man who just feels like he’s too young to have wrinkles, facelift procedures can make you look the way you want to look.
In 2011 there were 119,026 facelifts performed throughout the nation. That number increased 6% in 2012 to 126,320 procedures. Technically known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift can take care of sagging through the cheek area and deep creases that settle in below the lower eyelids. The laugh lines that form from the nose to the outer corner of the mouth can be erased and the embarrassing second chin can be banished from your body. Cher proudly admits to having face lifts performed over the years.
Not all procedures involve the entire face. Many people choose to focus on one area that bothers them. Rhinoplasty continues to be a popular surgery. The numbers remained rather stable from 2011 to 2012 with 242,684 people having the surgery done in 2012 while 243,772 had it performed in 2011. Nose surgery, or nose reshaping, is designed to make the nose more attractive to make you more confident and comfortable. Structural abnormalities inside the nose can make it difficult to breath and having the nose reshaped can help ease breathing.
Another option is to choose a brow lift, otherwise known as a forehead lift. Over the years, creases form across the forehead. Nearly 47,000 people chose this procedure in 2011 to whereas almost 45,000 in 2012, making it another popular choice for improving facial appearance. As the brow is lifted, the creases are minimized on the forehead and on the bridge of the nose. Frown lines will no longer plague your happy appearance when you choose to have a sagging brow repositioned.
A facelift is the answer for you if you feel that you just look too old and want to look younger. If you have just one problem area, such as a “turkey neck” or sagging brow, there is a surgery available to take care of that problem and leave you feeling more confident.
