There are several reasons that you may be a good candidate for a facelift procedure. Whether you have loose skin around your jowls or deep lines that won’t go away with regular skin care, there are other qualities that are taken into consideration during your consultation. Here are some signs that you may be an ideal candidate for a facelift from Dr. David Bogue.
- You Have Sagging Facial Skin With Some Flexibility. Most candidates for a facelift want to correct hollowed cheeks, creases, lines, a sagging skin around the jowls. A facelift is a great option for patients who have these issues and want to restore the youthful contour of their face.
- You Can’t Achieve Your Results With a Less Invasive Procedure. Facelifts are ideal for those who have moderate to severe loose skin and wrinkling in the face. For those with only mild wrinkles or lines, there are a few other procedures that could help you achieve the look you want. This includes BOTOX®, dermal fillers, neck lifts, and eyelid surgery, which are much less invasive.
- You Are In Good Overall Health. Like any other surgery, you should be generally healthy before undergoing a procedure. This means that you don’t have any underlying health conditions that could cause serious risks or complications. Dr. Bogue will check over your medical history to make sure that it is safe to perform a facelift.
- You Have Realistic Expectations. While it is true that a facelift can make you look upwards of 10 years younger, it cannot prevent the process of aging. Your skin may continue to sag or develop wrinkles over time. However, you will still look younger than you are and, most importantly, you will look like yourself.
While these are just a few of the most important aspects of facelift candidacy, they are not intended to substitute a consultation.
