A facelift is a procedure that treats the effects of aging, gravity, skin laxity, and muscular weakening. The procedure typically involves tightening facial soft tissues and removing fat and excess skin. In general, the best candidates for a facelift are individuals who:

  • Exhibit one or more of the following signs of aging:
    • Nasolabial folds, which are also known as laugh lines or marionette lines
    • Sagging facial tissues, such as jowls and/or a double chin
    • Excess neck fat and loose skin
  • Have some remaining skin elasticity
  • Are physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy
  • Have reasonable expectations for their surgery

It’s important to remember that a patient’s age isn’t an accurate indication as to whether he or she is a suitable candidate for cosmetic facelift surgery. For example, one could easily assume that only patients in their 60s or 70s are prime candidates, but a surgeon may still perform facelift surgery on a patient in his or her 40s or 50s, especially if genetics, smoking, or sun exposure have contributed to the visual signs of aging. Additionally, because there are various facelift procedures used to treat the signs of aging in different facial regions, patients should always consult one or more experienced Board Certified plastic surgeons for individualized surgical recommendations.
