Did you make a new year’s resolution to lose weight when 2019 rolled around? If you did, you’re among a large group of people in the United States. In 2018, “lose weight or get in shape” was the second most popular resolution among Americans. It came right after saving money and right before having more sex. You can read more about 2018 top resolutions here.
If you’ve stuck to your 2019 resolution diet and you’re beginning to see the weight loss, congratulations. If your diet has left you feeling slimmer around your body, but wrinklier around your face, this is common. It is often referred to a “diet face.” Women who lose the weight they want, but gain the wrinkles they don’t want is a common issue. Research has found that for every ten pounds you lose, it is equivalent to aging an older woman by four years.
A facelift is a solution for women who have lost the extra pounds they’ve needed to. In fact, before having a facelift, most plastic surgeons will suggest being at your ideal weight before you get your facelift. It is best if your body and face goals happen in tandem.
If you are thinking it’s the right time for a facelift in 2019, contact Dr. Maurice M. Khosh to schedule your personal consultation. He offers a wide range of facelift options and he will determine which is best for you to achieve your overall goals.
