If you want to reduce the natural folds, wrinkles or loose skin from your cheeks and neck that have emerged from aging, a facelift may be the perfect solution. A face lift is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of your lower face and neck by fighting the effects of stress, time and environmental harm. Nothing can stop the aging process, but a facelift (rhytidectomy) can help turn back the clock. A facelift can reduce or remove the most visible signs of aging. A facial plastic surgeon can remove excess fat, tighten underlying muscles, and redrape the skin of your face and neck to achieve a more youthful appearance. A facelift can be done alone, but is usually done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.
Candidates for a facelift can be either male or female, preferably non-smokers and in good health, and are those whose face and neck have begun to sag and wrinkle, but whose skin still has some elasticity. Results are best when the patient has good bone structure and well-defined features. Under these circumstances, you can have a facelift anytime between ages 45 and 65, although some patients well into their 70’s have achieved good results.
