A facelift can be a great way to turn back the hands of time and reveal a fresh, youthful you. However, before undergoing a facelift, it’s important to be sure you are a good candidate. Just as with any elective cosmetic procedure, there are certain considerations that must be taken into account before deciding a facelift is a good option to achieve your goals.
What Can a Facelift Do for You?
A facelift is a great way to treat:
- Loose, sagging skin
- Deep wrinkles
After a facelift, your skin will be tighter and smoother, and you’ll look more youthful. You’ll still look like yourself, just refreshed and with 5 or 10 years taken off of your appearance.
A facelift doesn’t address the entire face, although it can be combined with other procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery for more comprehensive results. On its own, though, a facelift addresses the jawline and lower face. A neck lift can also be done at the same time in order to create a smoother neck that matches with your new, youthful jawline.
Who Will Benefit from a Facelift?
Typically, the people who will benefit most from a facelift are those in their 50s or 60s who want to get rid of jowls and tighten sagging skin on the lower face and jawline. The best facelift candidates:
- Have realistic expectations
- Are non-smokers or are willing to quit smoking prior to surgery and throughout the recovery period
- Are in general good health
- Are mentally ready to undergo cosmetic surgery
