If your face no longer reflects how young you feel on the inside, a facelift is a great way to restore a more youthful appearance. It is the ideal solution to help you recapture the beauty and radiance of your face. But perhaps you’ve been asking yourself – Am I a good candidate for a facelift? Let’s find out.
A facelift improves the symptoms of aging, but typically focuses on the lower half of the face. The muscles of the cheeks often sag and hang along the jawline and chin, as a result of gravity and aging, and this is the area that benefits most from a facelift. A facelift is designed to lift sagging skin to reduce wrinkles, elevate the cheeks, and sculpt the jawline and neck.
With a traditional facelift, the surgeon will tighten the skin and underlying muscle. There is also the option of a mini-facelift especially for individuals with mild skin laxity.
Are you a good candidate for a facelift?
If you have lax facial skin including flabby jowls and a sagging jawline, you may be a good candidate for a facelift. For best results, you should be in good overall health, and still have some skin elasticity. It’s also important to have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with facelift surgery.
If you are interested in getting a facelift, be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The surgeon will conduct a thorough physical examination and then determine if you would be a good candidate.
