Details on a Cosmetic Facelift
Aging is something that is unavoidable for us. However, we can turn back the clock on our physical appearance, at least to an extent. A cosmetic facelift, also called a rhytidectomy in medical terms, addresses the aging that happens in the facial area. It can also be combined with a neck lift to address sagging skin and fat that form underneath the chin. Although this process does not stop the effects of aging, it will roll back the clock for a younger look and feel.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness. The loss of elastin in the skin tissue can lead to fine lines and wrinkles forming in the facial area. Along with the effect of gravity, the skin becomes saggy and loses its capability to sit very close to the skin tissue underneath the surface. A surgical facelift does not address the aging issues of the skin. However, it corrects the repercussions of the skin aging and losing its elasticity. Therefore, you can expect to appear more youthful and rejuvenated after this type of surgery.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for a Cosmetic Facelift?
Most candidates are between 40 and 60 years of age, although a surgical facelift can be done on people who are older than 60. If your skin is still in a healthy condition, allowing enough elasticity to adjust afterwards, you might be an ideal candidate for a surgical facelift. We also recommend that candidates have a strong and well-defined facial bone structure to ensure that your skin has a solid framework to adjust to afterwards. This surgical procedure will not alter your look or appearance, but merely turn back the clock by addressing issues that are direct results of aging and gravity.
An ideal candidate for any type of elective surgical cosmetic procedure will keep their expectations within the realms of realism. Perfection is something that cannot be achieved through cosmetic surgery. However, turning back time and addressing the elements that age, gravity, and exposure to the sun have on our faces and skins is a realistic outcome for most cosmetic procedures. If you are confident that you are an ideal candidate, we highly recommend consulting a medical professional to make an informed decision on whether to go through with it.
