Is a Face Lift Right for Me?

Your face is an essential part of your identity. If it appears worn out, tired, or constantly “droopy,” it can make you appear older than you truly are, impacting your self-confidence and overall quality of life. A facelift can help you restore a fresher, more youthful facial appearance that better reflects your true personality.

However, a face lift may not be the solution for everyone. Dr. Lefkovits will evaluate whether or not you are a good facelift candidate by evaluating several different factors, such as:

  • Skin condition – The ideal facelift candidate has skin that is still elastic and flexible. Facelift surgery requires your skin to stretch to remove wrinkles and repair loose areas.
  • Bone structure – The underlying structure of your face needs to be well-defined in order for it to provide long-lasting support for the facelift alterations that Dr. Lefkovits makes.
  • General health – You must be in good overall health and free of major medical conditions in order to heal properly from a facelift procedure.

In the end, a good candidate for facelift surgery has a realistic understanding of what this procedure can accomplish. While facelifts are capable of producing dramatic results, they can’t make you look like someone else, and the amount of change they can achieve in each unique case is limited. If Dr. Lefkovits decides you are not a strong candidate for a facelift, you can still take advantage of non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX®.
