If your face is starting to show signs of aging you may be wondering, – ‘Am I ready for a facelift, or is it too soon.’ Many men and women wanting to undergo a facelift are often unsure if the timing is right. The information below is helpful in deciding if you’re ready for a facelift, or if you should explore alternative facial rejuvenation options.
A facelift (rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, lifts and repositions the underlying facial tissue, and tightens the neck muscles, to restore a naturally youthful, refreshed appearance.
Are you ready for a facelift?

A facelift is an elective operation, and it’s not the type of procedure you decide to have done without careful consideration, as patient’s have to be medically fit to undergo the procedure. If you are contemplating having a facelift, it’s necessary to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon and have an evaluation done, to determine if you would be a good candidate (click here to learn more).
