Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
April 18, 2016
As a person ages, they begin to notice visible signs on their face that give undeniable evidence that the years are quickly passing by. This includes deep creases under the eyelids, sagging in the middle part of the face, a hollowed appearance and deep creases around the corners of the mouth.
Loose skin and fatty deposits can even give the appearance that a person has a double chin when they are not overweight. All of these things can make a person feel dissatisfied with their appearance. These individuals may be perfect candidates for a facelift.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that will improve the way a person’s face and neck look. It can address things like deep creases under the lower eyelids and along the corners of the mouth. It can also get rid of a double chin that is simply the result of aging, not being overweight. It also improves sagging in the middle of the face and a loss of skin tone that creates jowls. All of these symptoms occur as a person gets older.
They are also common when a person experiences a lot of stress, because of heredity and also because of environmental conditions that are causing them to age more quickly than normal.
The facelift procedure starts off with using some type of anesthesia to make a patient comfortable during the procedure. Tissue can then be repositioned, muscles in the face can be lifted, and excess skin can be removed.
Who Are the Best Candidates for a Facelift Procedure?
Individuals who would like to reduce the visible signs of aging in their face and neck are good candidates for a facelift. They must be non-smokers, since smoking can inhibit the healing process.
Also, the individual has to be in good health. They should not have any health conditions that would impair healing, or that would complicate the surgery.
It is also important for a person to have a realistic idea of what a facelift can do for them. Facelifts have been used to help individuals fight the aging process. However, they cannot stop the aging process and will not change an individual’s basic appearance.
