Facial aging is a common concern for many patients that I speak with. Aging is a natural part of life. However, some people experience more pronounced facial aging that can make them look old before their time. Over the years I have had many prospective patients ask me if they are too young to undergo a facelift. The truth is that everyone ages differently, and for some people, age is simply a number.

When determining whether a patient may be a good candidate for a facelift, I focus less on the patient’s age and more on what they hope to accomplish with their surgery. The process begins by finding the root cause of their facial aging to determine if they would benefit most from a full facelift, a mini facelift, or a different procedure altogether. During a full facelift, I am able to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids, mid-face, and neck, while also correcting the position of the eyebrows. A mini facelift may be more appropriate for patients who are only interested in treating the lower portions of their face.

Check out the video below where I discuss how I use facelift surgery to help my patients turn back the clock and restore a more vibrant, younger-looking appearance:
