Maybe you were wondering if you would be a good candidate for facial plastic surgery. Lets consider the facelift procedure…
Facelift surgery is a good option for you if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have a positive outlook with specific, realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
- Preferably you are a non-smoker, or are willing to stop smoking (at least while healing).
Your plastic surgeon will explain the details about your options and what you can expect. He or she should also explain to you their experience and expertise in the area of facial plastic surgery you are considering. The surgeon might also advise on supportive aesthetic procedures to enhance the outcome. It is crucial for you to ask enough questions to find out about all aspects of the proposed surgery. Facelift surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires. A facelift can only be performed surgically while non-surgical rejuvenation treatments may help delay the time at which a facelift becomes appropriate as well as complement the results of surgery.
