So you want a facelift, but you don’t want to end up looking like a character out of Mars Attacks! Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be the case at all, but you will need to keep a few factors in mind to make sure you get the subtly youthful look you want and not a creepy alien face.

Work with a Reputable Plastic Surgeon

Please, for the love of all things holy, quit trying to shop around for the best price on your facelift. If a plastic surgeon is offering the same procedure for half the cost, there’s probably a reason. And believe me, you don’t want to find out what that reason is.

On the other hand, if you work with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, you can drop your worries at the door, knowing you’re in good hands.

Be Realistic

Before and after photos can be super helpful when explaining your goals to your plastic surgeon, but know that you’re not going to come out looking like Britney Spears or even the person in the before and after photos.

The goal of a facelift is to look like you, just younger and refreshed.

Try a Combo

Contrary to popular belief, facelifts actually only address the lower half of your face, so you might want to add a browlift or eyelid surgery to your procedure if sagging skin near your forehead and eyes are also bothering you.

You can also take advantage of nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments like photofacials, injectables, and professional skin care products to update your look.
