Your first step in preparing for a facelift is to book a consultation appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area. At your consultation, you will discuss the type of facelift that’s best for you, the possible effects the procedure will have on your appearance, the risks associated with a facelift, costs and the extent of your treatment.
The best candidates for a face lift (medically known as a rhytidectomy) have one major thing in common: they have realistic expectations. While a face lift can give self-esteem a boost by generally improving facial features, a person’s appearance is still unique and a good surgeon will not drastically change it.
Probably you can recognize the celebrities if you are always on the look out for his or her news, otherwise you may not even know who the celebrity is should you be shown the “before pictures”
You may be candidate for a facelift (rhytidectomy) if you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck. A facelift may also be desirable if you have the appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth, and developed facial and neck wrinkles.
As we age, our skin and muscles lose elasticity, or the ability to retain the original shape after being stretched. Time and gravity play major roles in that loss. Such effects of time and gravity are most apparent in our faces. In a society where visual impressions are key, it is only natural to want to put our best forward.
