If you are thinking about having a facelift, you need to first find out if you are a good candidate. Just about everyone struggles with sagging skin as they get older, but a facelift is a great way to reduce signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance. However, it may not be the right option for everyone.
Facial rejuvenation surgery
A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the appearance by reducing visible signs of aging on the face and neck. It tightens lax skin on the face and below the chin, minimizes facial creases and wrinkles beneath the eyes, and tightens drooping jowls.
Are you a candidate for a facelift?
If you have sagging skin in the cheeks, jawline, and neck, and prominent facial wrinkles and folds that make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, you may be a good candidate for a facelift.
Candidates for a facelift should have skin that is elastic and supple, along with a well-defined bone structure. They should also be in good overall health, and not have any underlying medical conditions that could impair healing.
Facelift candidates should have realistic expectations about the procedure, as this is critical to their overall satisfaction with the surgical outcome. Patients should understand that while a facelift will improve the appearance of the face, it cannot stop the aging process.
