Who Is a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Facelifts are an excellent way for people to regain their younger looks. The procedure will remove wrinkles, correct the jowls, and give a more pleasant all-around appearance. However, a facelift isn’t for everyone. Continue reading to learn all about facelifts and decide if this procedure is right for you.

The Process

First of all, you will need to seek consultation with one of our experts. They will help you learn about what goes on during the procedure. Generally speaking, the procedure encompasses the entire face including some of the lower portions such as the neck. Of course, you will be given anesthesia before any of this begins. There are two main types of facelifts: the regular and the mini. Depending on the surgery, the procedure will be different. You should see results in a couple weeks when the bruising, redness, and swelling goes away.

The Regular Procedure  

This is the most common procedure that our clients undergo. Deep layers of the face, including fat and muscle, are manipulated in order to sculpt the face to a more desirable appearance. Sometimes the procedure is altered in order to lift areas of the neck.

The Mini Procedure  

This procedure is slightly less invasive than a typical facelift. It is still a serious surgery though. This procedure is typically done on people with less loose skin. The procedure isn’t quite as effective as a typical procedure, either. However, it may be the better option for certain people depending on your needs.  

The Ideal Candidate

In order to be sure you qualify for this procedure, you should stop smoking right away. Generally speaking, smokers are exempt from facelifts and many other cosmetic surgeries. The ideal candidate for this surgery should also be in good health. If you are considering a facelift, you should also have a positive outlook and be certain you understand which results are possible. While there is no age limit set for this procedure, the ideal candidate is between the ages of 35-60. A young person may wish to choose a less invasive procedure; while an older person may not be healthy enough to undergo surgery. Consult with our specialists to be certain that you are a good candidate.
