Will Other People Be Able to Tell I’ve Had a Facelift?

“Can people tell if you get a facelift?” Our Philadelphia-based team often hears some form of this question from patients who are thinking about having a facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy. The surgical procedure aims to reverse signs of aging by lifting and tightening facial tissues, which makes the results especially visible.

As women and men alike seek to rejuvenate their appearance, many desire results that look natural, balanced, and harmonious with their overall features. In this blog, we explore the essence of a facelift and delve into the best approaches to ensure natural-looking results, allowing you to achieve a timeless and refreshed appearance.

A facelift is a surgical procedure that targets sagging skin, deep creases, and facial muscle laxity caused by aging, gravity, and other factors. During the procedure, excess skin is carefully removed, underlying tissues are tightened, and facial muscles may be repositioned to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated look. This procedure can make you feel increased satisfaction with your appearance and others will tend to view you as more youthful.

While a facelift provides remarkable results, the key lies in achieving natural-looking outcomes that preserve the unique features and expressions of each individual.

Fortunately, the exaggerated, “pulled” look that many people are worried will happen to them if they have a facelift is exceedingly rare—especially when working with an experienced plastic surgeon using advanced techniques, like Dr. Kevin Cross. When you go to the right surgeon, there’s no need to worry that your face will look “stretched,” “windswept,” obviously worked on. If the proper techniques are used, the results will look very natural, and others won’t know that you’ve had any plastic surgery at all.

Dr. Cross is exceptionally adept at sculpting natural-looking facial contours and ensuring that any incisions are well-placed in areas where they are not easily visible. A modern facelift creates a more youthful, toned appearance. In fact, in many cases people say that it takes 10 years off of their appearance by placing tissues back in their original positions.

You’ll start by having an in-depth consultation with us so that we can determine your specific concerns, desired outcome, and expectations. Our goal is to create a customized plan to address your unique needs while preserving a natural look.
