I'm only 19 but am considering a facelift. Any other suggestions? For many years I've felt uncomfortable in my own skin (Photo)

Thanks for submitting some picture to evaluate you, it is important to let you know that physical evaluation is more sophisticated and we doctors can evaluate better.
First of all you are a nice woman with attractiveness, and if I try to evaluate your photos I can see a Dentofacial Clase II or with retrognatia, this could make us see some fat deposit under your chin, which one could think that it is better to make a liposuction. But if you have a real dentofacial clase II one should consider other surgery like Orthognatic surgery,but if your dental occlusion is good and you have a retrognatia you need an mentoplasty of advancement and you will solve the fat under your chin. I recommend to visit a board certified surgeon Facial plastic surgery and Maxillo-Facial so he can check you physically to see if you have dentofacial anomalies where not well explored by doctors could let you choose another type of surgery without resolving the base problem.

Better options for you other than facelift.
Thanks for sharing your photos! You have great facial balance and wonderful features.
The concerns you note will improve with a excellent facial skincare regimen. This will provide exfoliation to reduce blemishes, stimulation of skin turnover with tightening, reduction in pigmentation.
Other considerations may be a micro-liposuction under the chin; filler or fat graft to the upper cheek and a touch of Botox along the outer brow. This combo will give you the glow you are looking for. You need NO facelift surgery.
Please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to consider these option and review your concerns with him or her.
These are tough times for self-esteem... consider yourself beautiful. All the best!
No facelift is needed in your case
No need for facelift
You are way too young to consider facelift and frankly it is not necessary at all. Based on the pictures, a lot of what you are looking to achieve can be done with neck liposuction that is far less invasive and less costly.
