When appearance is a big part of a person’s image and lifestyle, such as with Annabel Giles, the sagging tired appearance that comes with age can be a source of worry and other negative emotions. Giles, a former top model in Britain, was taking the changes happening to her face as she neared 50 rather hard, so she decided to do something about it. “It was not an easy decision,” she wrote in an article for the UK’s Daily Mail, “but one which I can honestly say has changed my life for the better.”
As Annabel Giles reveals to us, even the world’s most beautiful models are not exempt from the ravages of time. Although Botox injections and other facial fillers can do a wonderful job at smoothing lines and wrinkles on their own when you’re in your 30s or 40s, eventually more than just a couple of injections every few months is needed. Gravity and skin health will put their foot down and cause thickness around the jawline and deep creases to form whether we like it or not.
For many women, and even men, a facelift can be as rejuvenating for your life as it is for your face. Following a breakup, illness, or stall in your career, of which Giles experienced all three, lifting the skin and muscles of the face is as effective as reaching deep down inside and giving your soul a pat. When you do it for yourself, many great things can result. It is all due to the increased self-esteem you will feel. It can give you the nudge to take on new challenges or talk to that cutie in the elevator you’ve been swooning over for months.
Results from Deep Within
The deep plane facelift is the best approach for older women who are going under the knife in search of a more refreshed appearance. It is highly suggested for all patients electing to have a facelift for that matter. By performing a deep plane lift, surgeons with the necessary advanced training are also able to lift the outer corner of the brow. Drooping brows are another common concern of the aging face that can be a major contributor to that tired or perpetually angry appearance. Most facelift techniques are not able to address the brows.
Reluctance to undergo plastic surgery is often due to images of people in the media who look “done.” It is clear they have had cosmetic work because their skin is pulled so tight and the face does not move naturally. Deep plane facelifts offer the most natural-looking results. Additionally, it allows the surgeon to access and reposition the fat pads of the midface, which can lose volume and descend over time. A deep plane facelift will put everything back where it belongs, without being obvious that it has had some assistance.
The majority of older women who undergo a facelift are not looking to compete in beauty contests with 20-somethings. They just want to look like a better version of themselves. Sagging brows and turkey waddles under the chin are a sign of age, but not a badge of honor. It is still possible to appreciate the experiences they have had in life over the course of several years without having to look the part of a weathered woman who has struggled to get where she is. Instead, they want to show everyone that their success has left them feeling more vibrant than ever and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
