Who is a candidate for a facelift?
A facelift is an option for men and women who wish to regain the more youthful look that increased skin folds and sagging facial tissues now conceal. Most of our patients are individuals in their late 40s through 60s who are bothered by the effects of aging changes on the facial contour and neck profile. Patients should not smoke and be physically healthy to avoid post-operative complications. Furthermore, candidates should have realistic goals for procedure results since facelift surgery will not alter fundamental facial characteristics.
