Am I a Good Candidate For a Facelift?
A facelift is one of our most popular surgical procedures for restoring a youthful and revitalized facial appearance. This rejuvenative option can help make you look five to ten years younger, so you can appear as energetic and youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside. Designed to address excess, sagging skin and loose underlying tissues, a facelift can improve many common signs of age, including:
- Fine lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Loose or excess skin
In addition to having one or more of these aesthetic concerns, an ideal facelift candidate should be in good overall health, be a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. During the consultation process, a physical exam will be performed, and your medical history will be carefully reviewed to assess your body’s ability to heal from the procedure without complications. Since smoking can compromise both your health as well as the quality of your long-term results, it is generally recommended that patients stop smoking at least six months prior to facelift surgery. Finally, open communication about your expectations can help your plastic surgeon determine whether a facelift is the best procedure for your cosmetic goals.
