If you desire a more youthful, rested facial appearance, you may be a good candidate for a facelift. In general, facelift candidates are men and women age 40 and older that are in good health and do not smoke.
It is important to recognize that a facelift may not be for everyone. This facial rejuvenation procedure is intended to:
- Reduce deep lines around the nose and mouth
- Tighten hanging jowls
- Tighten facial tissue and muscles
- Reduce hollows under the eyes
You should also have realistic expectations. While a facelift can help tighten sagging skin and reduce the signs of aging, it will not make you look 20 years old again. Ideal candidates also have good skin elasticity. If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking for a period of time before and after your procedure to ensure proper healing after surgery.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kim will discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if a facelift is right for you. Whether you are concerned about the signs of aging or just want a more youthful appearance, Dr. Kim can help you find a solution.
