People often perceive a facelift as a major surgical operation with a lot of cost, and therefore they look for easier and cheaper alternatives (or so they think). Among them is the so-called facelift diet.
This quick blog post will help you understand how to think about your face, the facelift diet, and facelift options
The Facelift Diet and Facelifts
What is the facelift diet, and does it work? That’s a question we get every once in a while from our potential patients here in San Francisco. It’s really an apple and oranges question. Diets, especially eating healthy, can indeed be great for your skin. But a facelift is a surgical operation that deals with wrinkles and sagging skin; the surgery can do things that no diet can.
The ‘facelift’ diet was originally created by Dr. Nicholas Perricone. It’s main principle is an attempt to attack inflammation. Perricone MD has now branched out into selling skin care products of all kinds.
But here is the apples and oranges comparison. Should you eat healthy? Absolutely! Should you take care of your skin, especially avoiding the sun? Absolutely! Eating healthy and exercising are great for your skin and for your health, and sun of course is the #1 cause of premature aging of the skin.
But a facelift is a surgical operation and it can do things that no diet can do: reverse the wrinkles and sagging of the skin that is – sorry – an inevitable part of aging. Some people age more rapidly than others, and therefore some will benefit more from a facelift than others.
So, in sum, while we are not against the so-called ‘facelift diet,’ we are for surgical procedures that can be very cost effective and really help you look a lot younger.
