Who said that beauty is only for the young?

At The Dr. Kristina Zakhary Plastic Surgery Clinic in Calgary, we believe that looking and feeling gorgeous is a right of everyone — no matter your age. Naturally, however, your beauty needs and regimen will change over time, and at a certain point, you may opt for a facelift.

For many men and women, finding a facelift surgeon and going through with the process is a big deal — as it should be. It’s a medical procedure that should garner the same thoroughness and carefulness as any other.

Still, one thing is sure: You shouldn’t be worried about whether or not you’re going to like your results.

Because if you choose wisely, you’ll love them.

A lot of not being worried about your results has to do with finding the right facelift surgeon — someone with excellent credentials and years of experience and successful surgeries. But it’s also about realizing that the results you expect to get (boosted confidence, better self-esteem, greater luck in dating) are just the tip of the iceberg.

Below, we explore three happily surprising benefits of a facelift — those you may not have expected.

3 Unexpected Benefits of Getting a Facelift

#1. You’ll have more overall success.

How can we know that, right?

Well, it all comes back to confidence.

How we feel about ourselves on the outside impacts how we feel about ourselves on the inside. Therefore, by taking care of your outer appearance and shaping your face to look more how you’d like it to, you’re taking care of your self-esteem and your confidence.

This translates to other things you do in ways you cannot see. For example, subconsciously, when you feel more confident about your appearance, you’ll do things like take more risks and be more outgoing in social or work situations — excellent moves for getting more of what you want out of life.

#2. You’ll wear less makeup.

Many women use makeup religiously, refusing to leave the house without at least a layer of foundation, lots of mascara, and a full lip. And in this way, makeup can be like a crutch: You feel naked without it.

If this is you right now, one of the unexpected benefits you’ll get from your facelift is a newfound freedom from makeup. Sure, you’ll probably still wear it, but it won’t be the must-have it once was. Your skin will naturally feel smoother and tighter, and you’ll feel so great about the way you look in general that you won’t want to cover that gorgeous skin with makeup every day.

#3. You’ll feel more relaxed on a daily basis.

Finally, if you’ve ever struggled with shyness, introversion, or uncomfortable awkwardness around other people, you’ll notice that getting a facelift will automatically help you feel more relaxed. Feeling automatically more confident about the way you look on the outside will help you to let your true self shine through. Basically, you’ll feel more comfortable in your own skin.

A Facelift Can Change Your Life

Of course, it’s unwise to think that facelifts can solve all of your problems. But at the same time, just as maintaining a good diet and exercising regularly are good for your overall health and wellbeing, taking care of your facial appearance is great for you too. It’s something you can do for yourself now to boost your confidence, success, and poise for many years to come.
