4 Signs You’re a Good Candidate For a Facelift Surgery

Are you looking for a cosmetic procedure that will help shed years off your appearance? Here’s everything you need to know about the facelift surgery at our Edmonton clinic, and how our team can help you meet all your aesthetic needs.

Facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves a combination of excess skin removal, tightening of underlying muscles, and repositioning of skin. For many patients searching for anti-aging treatments, facelift surgery can provide many benefits, including: 

  • Restored youthful appearance
  • Removal of vertical banding on the neck
  • Improved volume in the mid-face
  • Noticeable improvement of sagging jowls

While facelift surgery can provide stunning results, you might feel like you need just a little more enhancement and additional surgical or non-surgical procedures can be combined with a facelift to provide optimal results. This includes:

Am I a Good Candidate for a Cosmetic Facelift Surgery? 

Ultimately, the decision to have a cosmetic facelift surgery is a personal one, and if you are considering this treatment, your plastic surgeon should be able to give you advice and guidance based on your desired aesthetic outcomes and current skin condition. 

Here are some signs that you could be a good candidate for a facelift: 

1. You Are in Good General Health

Any type of cosmetic surgery is still serious surgery, and therefore it’s imperative that you are in good overall health beforehand. During your consultation, you should discuss any pre-existing medical conditions you may have with your plastic surgeon, and they can help determine whether you should opt for less invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation. 

Remember: A facelift is a surgical procedure that needs significant healing and recovery time, so the healthier you are, the better your results, and the faster you will heal from the surgery. 

2. Good Skin Condition 

Ideally, you should have facial skin that has retained some flexibility and elasticity — and your skin should still be supple and have an ability to ‘bounce back’ if pinched. 

If you are a smoker, or your skin has suffered extensive sun damage, then these may affect the overall success of your facelift. It’s important to talk to your plastic surgeon about how certain lifestyle habits may impact your ability to have a facelift. 

3. Good Facial Bone Structure 

Your underlying bone structure makes up a big part of your facial aesthetic, and if you already have aesthetically balanced underlying bone structure, then the results of your facelift will be optimal. 

However, for example, if you have a ‘weak chin’, you may want to talk to your plastic surgeon about having chin surgery first, or if you aren’t satisfied with your nose, you could consider a rhinoplasty prior to a facelift, to ensure the best results. 

4. You Have Realistic Expectations of the Results 

Before you undergo a facelift, it’s important to understand the capability of this cosmetic surgery to make you ‘look young again.’ While a successful facelift can make you look about 10 years younger, you should be very clear on what it can and cannot achieve. 

A skilled plastic surgeon can ensure that your facelift is almost invisible: you will look younger and refreshed, but your results will not be unnatural.
