Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for face lift surgery?
Ideal face lift candidates are those who are seeking improvement for sagging facial and neck skin. They should be physically and psychologically healthy, desiring improvement rather than perfection, and aware of the potential risks and complications associated with facelift surgery
Am I too young (or old) for a face lift?
Most clients who seek a facelift are about 35 – 45 years old. However, if a client has substantial loose skin of the face and/or neck at a younger age, they can undergo this procedure. Unfortunately, if a client’s skin elasticity has diminished too much during the ageing process, he or she may not qualify as an ideal face lift candidate.
How long before I can resume normal activities after my facelift?
Clients can return back to work in about a week and a half to two weeks, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least two week.
How long will face lift results last?
The results of facelift surgery are long-lasting; however, the natural ageing process may cause the skin to sag once again.
Will it be obvious that I’ve had a face lift?
If a face lift is performed correctly, there should be no surgical signs. The goal is to help the client look more youthful and rested, without creating a face that appears too “tight.”
