Face Lift Surgery for Tampa, Trinity, Clearwater, New Port Richey, Lutz, and Beyond – How to Determine if you are an Ideal Candidate
Face lift surgery is an excellent option for many men and women who desire a fresher, more youthful appearance for their face. Though facelifts are fairly common, the procedure is still a serious one, and not all patients who seek a facelift are ideal candidates. Some people may benefit more from another cosmetic option, or from a combination of a facelift with some other procedure like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or facial implants.
If you’re interested in having a facelift, you’ll want to learn whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery by consulting with an experienced plastic surgeon. First, your surgeon can assess whether your appearance goals and expectations can be met through a face lift. While the procedure can surely make you look and feel much younger, it does have limitations. Additionally, your surgeon may examine the texture and condition of your skin. An optimal candidate for face lift surgery should have skin that easily retains some flexibility, as the procedure involves stretching the facial skin to remove wrinkles. Supple skin is also beneficial to a successful healing process.
Your surgeon will also want to learn about your overall health, as that can greatly affect your candidacy for a facelift. Because face lift surgery is invasive, being physically healthy is important. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or you smoke, it’s vital that you share that information with your surgeon.
