Facelift Surgery Could Improve More Than Your Appearance


Most women who choose to undergo cosmetic surgery do so to improve their appearance. As a person ages, wrinkles start to form on their face, and a facelift can help to counteract this. During a facelift, the skin on the face is pulled upwards, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. While this can provide a more youthful appearance, facelift surgery has also been known to provide relief to sufferers of migraine headaches.

Migraine headaches can be extremely debilitating. Sufferers can experience prolonged extreme pain, as well as sensitivity to light, nausea and vomiting. In some cases, the pain and discomfort caused by migraine can be so much that the sufferer is unable to work or perform physical activity. These headaches can be brought about by stress, hormones, physical activity or changes in the weather. They affect the nerves and muscles in the head area, causing incapacitating pain.

Although the research surrounding facelifts and migraine is continuing, studies have found there to be much improvement. The research began when many facelift clients came to their aftercare appointments saying they were not only extremely satisfied with their appearance, but their chronic headaches had also disappeared. This could be due to that fact that, during surgery, muscle segments are removed in order to tighten the external region and give the appearance of a more youthful appearance. This then relieves the internal compression that has been causing pain, with around 80% of clients reporting an improvement in their migraine problems.
