With so many plastic surgery options available for patients today, it can be hard at times for people to know exactly which cosmetic procedure will be best for their personal needs. Knowing whether or not you’re a good candidate for a facelift (or any other procedure) requires understanding the benefits that each procedure is capable of providing. Today I wanted to focus on facelift surgery and discuss what makes it right for people who wish to rejuvenate their appearance.
In order to be a good candidate for facelift surgery, a patient must currently experience noticeable signs of aging in the lower portion of their face. These age signs may result from excess fat, loose or sagging skin, or facial muscles that have become lax over time. Facelift surgery can help men and women of all ages as long as they are deemed to be in good enough physical and mental health to do so following their plastic surgery consultation appointment. It’s important for prospective facelift candidates not to smoke or consume any other form of nicotine (including vaping or e-cigarettes) in the weeks leading up to their surgery to reduce the risk of potential complications.
In the following video, I explain the many benefits of facelift surgery in detail to help patients determine if this cosmetic procedure is right for their aesthetic needs:
