Who Are the Ideal Candidates for a Facelift?
Ideal candidates for a facelift are frustrated by noticeable facial wrinkles and lines whether it be on the entire face or a specific section, such as the mid-face and lower face. Facelift surgery can address various sections depending on your unique signs of aging. It is important to understand that age does not necessarily define the timing to have cosmetic facial surgery. There are so many unique concerns and reasons, and also numerous lift types depending on what needs to be addressed. The treatment chosen will vary for patients who are in their 30s versus those who are over 60. Skin laxity is one of the most important components in the planning process. Facelift patients should be in good physical health and refrain from smoking, and also have realistic expectations.
