Questions About Facelift Surgery

Questions About Facelift Surgery

Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica

What is the best age to have a facelift?

There is no perfect age to choose a facelift. At our Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice, patients vary greatly in age, starting from the early-to-mid 40s, and ranging into the late 70s. We all age at different rates, based on genetics, lifestyle, diet, and other factors, and the face lift procedure can be performed on men and women of any age who are experiencing not-so-subtle signs of aging. Since facelifts can be targeted to a specific area and designed to provide more or less correction, there are facelift procedures available for people of almost any age.

Am I a good candidate for facelift?

If you are in good health and you are unhappy with unattractive signs of aging on your face, come in for a visit and we will evaluate you to see if you fit the candidate profile. To be considered for this procedure, you should be in good physical health and fully understand the procedure and the results possible.

Why should I choose Dr. Eugene Kim as my facelift surgeon?

Dr. Kim is a well-trained, talented, and experienced Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon. He has been performing this procedure for many years on a wide variety of patients, and he has been extremely successful — just ask our many happy patients. In addition to amazing results, Dr. Kim works very hard to provide a positive experience for each patient. He is also a highly skilled communicator, and strives both to understand your cosmetic goals and ensure that you understand the facelift procedure. He will go to great lengths to ensure you are comfortable during your time here and confident in your decision to have the facelift procedure.

Are the results of a facelift permanent?

The changes that occur are designed to be permanent. However, the aging process will continue and you will eventually see changes that may resemble your pre-facelift appearance. You can encourage youthful-looking skin for years to come by quitting smoking, taking care of yourself, eating a healthy diet, exercising, and keeping skin replenished with nutritive moisturizers and skin care products.

Should I have another treatment performed in conjunction with facelift?

That all depends on the appearance results you have in mind. Many people choose to have multiple procedures performed together to save on both recovery time and cost. Popular combination treatments include brow lift, eyelid lift, and neck lift. Talk to Dr. Kim about your goals; he may recommend additional procedures, or you may be able to achieve your perfect look with the facelift alone.

Is the facelift procedure affordable?

At E. Kim Plastic Surgery, we understand that many of our patients are on tight budgets. We price our services affordably with the philosophy that cosmetic surgery can be achieved by those who want to improve their appearance. We believe that a facelift is not a luxury, but an investment in yourself.
