Many Valley women are on point when styling their hair in the always-trendy ponytail. In fact, ponytails have always been equated with youth. Women wear them throughout childhood years, as teens, and into their 20s.  At some point, women reach a certain age and deem themselves “too old.” However, when hair is pulled tight enough and high enough, it has the ability to give your face the appearance of a lift.  It really is no surprise that the sleek and simple updo has been a Hollywood favorite since the 1950s, and today it’s hard to scan a red carpet and runway without seeing an A-lister sporting a ponytail.

This simple yet chic style has also captured the attention of many plastic surgery patients in Scottsdale. When a woman puts her hair into a high ponytail, she creates a centralized pull on the skin from the forehead to the cheekbones, which is similar to the pull many desire when treating sagging skin. A facial procedure can tighten the skin, lift the cheeks and elevate the brow. At Berardi Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, we specialize in a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures used to achieve the maximum results.

Of course, with a good hairbrush and an elastic band, you may be able to reap similar benefits. Placed just right, professional stylists say a perfect ponytail can yield an impressive lift, even if only for a few hours.
