A facelift can rejuvenate your overall look and take away signs of aging, making it one of the more popular cosmetic procedures available. If you believe the years haven’t been kind to your face and you want to look younger, fresher and better-rested, a facelift may be exactly what you need to accomplish those goals. There are a few considerations that factor into your candidacy for facial surgery of any kind. Of course, each patient is an individual, and the best way to determine if you qualify for a facelift is to schedule a consultation at our office.
Good candidates for a facelift are in good overall health and do not smoke. Smoking impacts your circulation and how your body heals. If you do smoke, you would need to stop at least 2 weeks before undergoing a facelift procedure.
Another requirement of a good facelift candidate is having realistic expectations. While this procedure has been shown time and again that it can make a person look years younger, it won’t make a 50-year-old look like they did when they were 20. Good candidates for a facelift understand this. And truthfully, most people who get this procedure don’t want to look 20 years younger; they just want to look their very best.
It is also important for people to understand that since a facelift is a surgical procedure, it does involve some downtime. As such, good candidates have time available in their schedule to take off of work and limit certain activities. Regardless of your profession, you need to be able to take adequate time to heal before going back to work or other activities. Rushing back too quickly can impact your results and leave you dissatisfied. People who give themselves an adequate amount of time to recover tend to be happiest with their results.
To put it simply, a facelift could help you to look years younger. However, if you’re considering this procedure, there are some factors that weigh into whether or not it’s right for you. If you’re ready to look into your options, set up a time to visit the office of Dr. Steven Dayan in Chicago. We’d be delighted to examine your case and help you reach your aesthetic goals.
